Great, although I do wonder if anyone will ever really adjust the cone angle. 
Doesn't do any harm though.

Me, only query is that the above don't really seem to relate to issue 1164, 
which is about initial behaviour of the GPS when entering leg mode away from 
the active leg.

Are you happy for me to pull from that branch to review, or would you rather 
send a patch, or make a merge request on Gitorious. All of those are fine with 
me, your choice.
