Turkish APRS

TA2T spent 5½ hours last night translating aprs.fi in Turkish! Thank you.

Over the weekend I tried to make the map icons rotate and point to the course of a moving station. Got it basically working, but it still looks too ugly to be published. Need to do some graphics conversion work first. It might have a performance impact, I hope it won't be too bad.

It could probably be an option in settings to turn this feature on whenever user wants to.

perhaps you can implement an arrow that points into the driving direction. make it flashing (gif) when moving and steady when < 5km/hr...

Adding an arrow would increase the amount of graphics on the map, and slow the map down even more. It seems that panning/zooming speed of the map depends on the amount of overlays (symbols, waypoints, paths, labels). So I think I'll stick with a rotated symbol icon + shadow for now, instead of icon + arrow + shadow.

We'll see soon if this causes problems.
