this is non-fatal, but it suggests you are not on an N810 - are you on a
770 or an 800?

again, non-fatal (roadmap was originally designed to use maps built
offline, dynamic map downloading is a fairly recent feature) -- although
see below.

This is the culprit (## is fatal).  Were you running a lot of other apps at
the time?  DO you have any virtual memory allocated?  (If on a 770, does
the 770 have significantly less memory than the N8x0s?)

I actually think the memory piece is a red herring and that there is
probably a bug in the locator code (with a missing usdir.rdm).  Let me do a
test or two and get back to you.

That would be good :)
