well, "this depends" :) .

Using the internal GUI, on the map, navigate to a location. Go to the menu, 
action, globe, set as position. Then go back to the map and do the same for 
the destination. Should give you a nice route.

IMO this is pretty useless. This would work for a while, until the file format 
changes somehow.

It would be better to prepare the config file for the tablets as much as 
possible and then change a couple of lines during build time. This will break 
one day as well, but could then be fixed much easier as updating/syncing a 
custom config wilf with the main config file.
