The first time I saw a ka-map application, I was very much impressed. To
navigate a map "continuously" is definitely one of the main reasons, why I have

I share your opinion that ka-map is quite cool. Thats why I dont really
understand why the code is not moving forward. I still miss functions like
SmartZoom and International Character Support. Are there plans to add
