This all looks great. I just built the version to test it. 

Which version of osm-gps-map are you targeting? >= 0.5.x (ubuntu lucid)
or >= 0.7.x (current series)?

Also, Sander [1] and I [2] are starting a bit of optimisation work on
osm-gps-map at the moment. Nothing API breaking, just some internal
clean ups to, in particular, improve the layer/osd rendering efficiency.
