Hi Paul,

thanks for the update!

On the kernel-side I've already imported most of your changes into our
tree. The only two commits missing are related to our single partition
scheme in defconfig:
bfe9302: gta04_deconfig: Builtin bq27x00 driver, without I2C support
a33fb00: gta04_deconfig: Ramdisk initramfs


You might be interested in this commit, which makes the touchscreen
correctly work on the Letux 7004:
e8d7d21: L7004: touch: don't flip y axis

For the device/goldelico/gta04 repo I've imported some (simple)
changes already, but I have to continue once I get to it next time.

BR,
  Lukas

> This is needed to have proper speed. I didn't check that the units were
> correct when reporting the speed from NMEA and I was wrong: NMEA reports
> knots and Android excepts m/s. This resulted in having twice the correct
> speed reported to applications (OsmAnd was showing 180 km/h when the
> speed was actually 90 km/h). By the way, OsmAnd makes a wonderful
> navigation application (probably as good as navit, perhaps even with
> extra features), with software routing and voice indications and the
> GTA04 makes a quite nice GPS navigator, too!

> Mostly, this is because the 50ms polling time is short enough to report
