gpsd seems not to be installed by default (and tangogps seems not to  
define a depency to pull it in automatically)

did you upgrade the software and flash the uboot?
calling volume is surpringly enough _not_ controlled by the slider in the  
dialer but only through alsamixer -- once you foudn a nice setting you can  
store it and it will come back everytime you call.

flashing u-boot and using a recent kernel makes suspend/resume working  
rather acceptable (wakes up reliable and saves power, though it keeps  
waking up frequently), may corrupt your sd card though, at least if the  
you need to change the powermanagement to "dim first, lock then" (shortly  
press power button).
