Yesterday evenving I started wondering whether it all had something to
do with the fact that the planet.bin file was located on microSD card.
So I downloaded a tiny map of the area where I live and stick it in the
flash memory and it worked.  I then downloaded the latest planet.bin
from the Navit project site and loaded that onto my microSD card and it
worked.  I was surprised.  Maybe my old planet.bin files was corrupt? I
was sure that it wasn't because a few days earlier it didn't work, and
somehow installing a newer build of Navit from the Navit site make it
start working.  So the old file didn't work, then it worked, then
suddenly it stopped working.  Maybe it was just corrupt??
