Besides being an allround usefull PIM/GSM device I would also like to
use it as a kind of Tripy roadmaster
( This device tracks where you
go but can also display rudimentary maps.

They display is actually a roadbook. It indicates which direction to
go and for how long, combined with basic info such as how far you are
from the starting point, name of the town/village you are, etc. A lot
of beautiful roadbooks are available on the internet. I use them on my
motorbike and I'd love to see them on the Neo :-)
