Any plans to expand on the GPS functionality of the software? Navigation... In the near future?

GPS has it's uses but it's too inaccurate for use on any robots I plan to build. It's not the most accurate in my sat navs (both TomToms, Audi onboard, iPhone and HTC) struggle in some areas and often think I'm in a field to the side of the road).
On a side note, for GPS to be worthwhile the robot would need to roam a large area and as such an onboard PC would probably be required since Bluetooth range is not near wide enough and WiFi (depending on setup) could also be too small a range.
