I can answer the first part : in order to get the GPS application (named 
"mapping demo") :
- open the menu
- open "applications" (the colored boxes)
- in the list, you should have the mapping demo.

Didn't tested it yet, since I'm indoors.

I second you on the screen rotation part.

But on the whole, Qt Extended 4.4 is really useable and fast (especially 
if you load the "smart" theme, and use the latest mwester kernel).

Thank you Lorn for your excellent work !
