This could be a very useful fix!  I am currently rebuilding tangogps but
one thing I am not sure of - where do you "after setting
global_font_scale to sth like 40"?

I gave feed back to Martin that the digits were too large (the tangogps
developer) about the font size on early versions, but the digits keep
getting bigger each version (it seems :(

Here, many road systems run nw->sw so its real display stealer when
driving.
