Quick answer: on a N810 you are happier with maemo-mapper, on the Neo
with tangogps. You have more buttons on the N810 and a landscape screen,
whereas the Neo uses portrait-mode. tangogps was designed to be fast and
to be usable without hardware buttons.

Before porting tangogps the code needs a good deal of clean-up but then
a port is quite straightforward. However, you will want to adapt it to
more buttons and landscape mode. 

If you want to port it, I will support you. However, for now I will
focus my work on more features - yet a future port is possible.
