a) Better GPS reception !!

b) Use UMTS-modems with firmware update or use a new 4G LTE capable modem 

c) If you want to use a capacitive touch (i.e. multi-touch), please keep 
on having the possibility for using the current resistive one! I 
definitvely like it!

d) Keep on using OMAP3. OMAP4 needs much more power, easily becomes hot 
when using its power and has very much reduced livetime (See: "Power on 
hours (POH)" of this throw-away-processor, as I call it to be.)

e) Spend one more GPIO to IrDA in order to be able to switch off IrDA and 
RS232 tranceiver at the same time.

f) Spend 0 ohms resistors in some power paths in order to get a chance to 
find out where a gta04 needlessly drains power during suspend or poweroff 
by simply measuring.

g) Add a DVB-T receiver.   ;-)))

Best regards
