There is an app specifically made for GPS logging (OMGPSLOG???) that
does not do any 'fancy' calculations and does not display bitmap
graphics. So if it's _just_ logging, you don't need the maps..

I've thought about letting the AUX button (when pressed for 5 seconds)
turn off the touch screen. You can unlock by pressing AUX, and no
touch screen -> no waking up!
