Has anyone discussed the possibility of a mobile-friendly alternate GUI 
for xastir?  Large-text labels on aprs positions, easy one-touch 
commands for the types of things you can do on a D700?  It's hard to see 
small text and do fine mouse manipulations while mobile.

Also, has anyone tried building Xastir on Nokia 700/800?
