Your efforts to date are to be commended.

I would find the ability to export the raw GPS point data very useful,
partly for a larger area as it would save waiting to download from the
server each time, just refresh now and again.

Background image capability would be useful (with some form of appropriate
calibration) so that I can experiment with some older historic maps.

>There are only few new features compared to release candidate 1:

>- No background images. They will not be available until after 1.0. Sorry.
