Guenther:

Not sure what might be causing such a problem for you, but on my Palm TX, 4.00.71 starts up pretty much as quickly as all the previous versions (5 seconds on my system - I have 198 maps (87 Megs of maps) on my SD card).

The only time I've noticed a long delay (with the hourglass) is when I've had to re-enter the paths to my directories (Maps, Tracks, Routes, etc.) and the system had to re-scan the MANY maps I have on my SD card as a result of accidentally starting Pathaway without the SD card in place. (On my system, if you pop the SD card out, then forget to put it back in before launching Pathaway, even after putting the SD card back in & restarting Pathaway, it no longer knows the previously entered directory locations and they all have to be re-entered)

Beyond that problem, startup time for me seems normal...

Hi Dodger,

I have also 100+ maps (~0.5G) installed.
It is easy for me to reproduce:
- installing 4.00.71 and every start takes up to 20 seconds
- then installing e.g. 4.00.67: regardless what I do - every start is faster than 5 seconds
- installing 4.00.71 back and the start up time is very long again.

No SD card switching or anything else. So I think there is something different in this new version.
