I'm sorry about that - I put in a review request for it shortly after I
came to RH as at the time I was poking about with running it on my
TinyBook(tm) using my phone as a GPS provider via bluetooth, which was
all fun and shiny, but it never had much serious use potential and
frankly I got bored with it, which is why I didn't work on the package
as hard as I probably should have done. Anyway, someone else has taken
it over now, so hopefully it'll finally get done.

(Presumably, though, Nokia will come up with something for navigation
purposes? They seem fairly big on IVI for Meego and frankly I don't see
them relying on Navit. Of course, whatever they come up with may be
non-F/OSS, I guess.)
