What's New in This Release:

· App no longer crashes if no location sources available (e.g. GPS and Wireless Locations turned off).
· Spelling of "Centreing" altered following widespread criticism.
· "Loading" screen no longer gets stuck. Hopefully.
· Search - returns results from the Ordnance Survey Gazetteer, ordered by distance.
· Waypoints updated to allow custom names (thanks to Simon Harper for suggestions).
