I've said this before, but I'll say it again - Thanks Richard for your 
missionary work on this. 

I think the concept is cool, but I also think we're going to see some 
definite changes at the consumer level as a result of yours and others 
work on this.  I fully expect that in the coming years consumer-level 
GPS's will be taking advantage of all the hard work you've been doing 
(and I will then be personally be able to enjoy the benefits of your 
hard work).

Maps are something that have been entirely and heavy-handed closed 
source forever, OpenStreetMap is not just breaking that stranglehold, I 
think it's going to dominate and open up new avenues for us all.  This 
is going to be a prominent victory for the open source concept.
