I guess since you called it this, you already know about GPSToday, which is an awesome GPS primer, location logger, locating sharing, and map application (and more) in one. I've never noted that it uses much ram, but perhaps your scope is different.

Nice plugin! Is there anyway to change the units? I've looked in the registry, but haven't found anything (specifically I'd like to switch Km/h to m/h).

As you can see this is the first initial release of the application. Some options will be added in the next subversion.

Did you mean m/h as miles per hour?

Good! Probably this program was written for those who really need it.

I'm interesting on such questions related to this application.
1. How it stable and reliable in work. For example, it should restore its working
state when you switch off/switch on your device.
2. Does it recover its working state after showing some errors (warnings)?
3. What errors (warnings) it show?
4. What about resource consuming (CPU, battery, etc...) on the different devices.

Don't hesitate to contact me with your real feedback, opinions and suggestions.
Also you can communicate with me on my site.

Thanks.

The App is very cool, but can you also show the current Cell ID?

Problem with Install
Hey, great looking plugin. Looks just like what I was hunting for, however I ran into a problem upon installation.

I installed it and all of my other plugins on Today disappeared. All that was showing was a date line. The device was then largely locked up (some buttons worked, but not all). Soft resets didn't work so eventually Safe Mode came up (Pocket Plus 4) so that I was able to delete the plugin. After doing so and rebooting it worked fine. Thinking it was a one time deal, I tried again after disabling all of my other plugins. The same problem occurred.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

My device:

HTC Touch Pro
WM 6.1 (Original ROM, Factory)
US Cellular (CDMA) Carrier

Thanks in advance!
