Running om2008-testing booting from single partion uSD (kernel on same
partition, loading from /boot/uImage.bin symlink), I have no direct problems.
Performance is a bit meh and it's glitchy.
For locations to work I need to have turned on GPS and let it sit. This can
take a while. If I use tangogps it picks up quicker and then switching to
locations it identifies my position. Tangogps seems to require a bit of task
switching to update the screen, you'll notice this when the map moves but none
of the buttons function. This seems to be a graphical problem.
The accuracy of the GPS seems to be ok. Tangogps reports the speed of my car
almost to the kilometer :) ... which I didn't expect.
