http://armin-warda.de/maemo-mapper-1.0.1-aw-0.4_armel.deb contains an option
to disable the default behaviour 'Maemo-Mapper disconnects from GPS when the
device cover is closed'. Thus it allows you to operate Maemo-Mapper with a
closed device cover, which protects the touchscreen. (Like
maemo-mapper-1.0.1-aw-0.3_armel.deb, it also supports two sets of URI/Map
parameters, and easy toggling these.)

I think operation with closed cover is an important feature for outdoor
activities with Maemo-Mapper & GPS, such as hiking, running, cycling,..
(NOTE: you must also disable the corresponding device's global setting:
'Tools' -> 'Control Panel' -> Connectivity' -> 'Disconnect when cover on

It would be really greate if Maemo-Mapper's author, John Costello alias
'gnuite', could add such a feature into his Maemo-Mapper mainline, which is
already at v1.1.0, while my modification is still based on v1.0.1 (this has
no timestamps in gpx-files).
