Searching new ways of better X10 software features
The e610 (and likely other x10's) are Microsoft Windows CE based systems (= the operating system). Many possible features could be explored.

If someone has access to a MS Win CE development system and found where and how certian features are stored,  here are some of the items which might be added / modified:

 

An intersection waypoint icon - for trails or forest roads, or even interstate exits.

Custom Arrival alarm sounds, via sound file.   Even a special sound or spoken name for that specific waypoint.

 

These items arepresently apparently built in to the Mitac application and not on separate image or sound files.  There may be a way to substitute one image for another if you knew where to look and how to swap.  This would not be for the inexperienced.  Toying with the code could mess up the bootstrap uploader and essentially make the unit not field servicable.

 

Furthur and larger possiblities would be to develop your own alarms - i.e crossing a border defined by a route.   How about a better altitude determing filter?  - a Kalman filter using Barometric, GPS altitude, and surface map (with surface disableable in case the user wants a waypoint while para- or hang- gliding at a specified altitude.
