-E-mail: loading hunderts of e-mails with questions that have been
discuted at least 300 times and hunderts of flaming e-mails, and maybe
dozends of "i need this and that app" e-mails, just to see that there's no
kews in the development of the navigation system (the info you where looking
-Webforum: click on a shortcut in the favorites, log in, jump to category
"application development -> navigation system", seeing that there's nothing
new, closing the connection. With the support of rss this would be even
better: open feedreader, scan through new posts in "application
development->navigation system", close feedreader.
