Not to steal Jason's thunder, but if you watch the video clip, you'll 
see that the "map" (at least currently) is a circle showing the 
positions of the stations from the station list relative to your current 
position which is apparently at the center of the circle.

He goes on to mention the GPWPL as a separate feature so if you have a 
map-displaying device that handles this NMEA sentence, then you'll have 
that in addition to the internal display's "map".
