Yes, maps will not be shown on Mapsource anymore. Also there will be 
problems regarding altitude profiles and different options regarding 
visibility on the GPSrs.

Marine mode shouldn't be the default...

However the change highlighted above has nothing to do with Marine mode, 
it affects the rerouting sensivity, and is useful if the user is 
expected never to be faster than ~15km/h (from switching on the GPS), in 
that case


will lead to offer rerouting like if the speed had been reached. However 
it creates problems if used at car speed, cause rerouting will be too 
often offered/recalculated.
See thread here: 

Besides Marine mode header can be changed via gmt too, and that is also 
available for Linux (gmt is the execution part of gmaptool).
