Will test on TG01

The pity is that Open Street Map does not cover well lots of countries.
(I do participate to Open Street Map).

Exclamation Rename app please
Cipher: Great to see an app using, but could you kindly choose a different name for your app.

Naming the app after the OSM project will only lead to confusion and is unfair to the other apps which use the project.

Kind regards

Bug - program crashes on a PDA
Bug - program crashes on a PDA.
Because at start it looks for info on GSM tower-cell.
Would be nice to run it on a normal PDA

So I got that menu to come up, the problem i was having is the program freezes so even if i get the menu up before it freezes it just freezes after iv opened it. And you say it uses GSM triangulation, well what about my CDMA phone how is that going to work?

It'd be nice if this could accept a KML file and project the waypoints contained onto the map like Google Maps does.

GCzII, a geocaching program, can send a list of caches in KML format to Google Maps and makes it easier to see how to navigate to a cache or to see what's nearby.. But many folks have noted that OSM often has better non-road maps, such as trails etc, which Google Maps does not. So in those cases, it'd be nice to be able to use OSM maps.

just checking. this looks interesting. willing to test for qvga...
but does it involve data? because the vogue (my phone) has internal gps chip so should it be able to triangulate the location?

Thanks for this GREAT app!!!
working fine so far
but is there a way to show how exact the GSM-location is ?
just like in google-maps e.g. a radius of 100 m ...

and will it be possible to search for places, cities etc ?

on my device (htc touch pro ) scrolling isn't that smooth...but why? non cached maps ?

I decided to change the name to OpenMobileMaps. So far I didn't find any app that is listed under the first pages on google with that name, so it shouldn't be in any conflict.

The next thing I'm about to implement is searching for an address, places etc. and showing them on the map.

And I will take a look at the apis for HD2. But without a device to actually test it will be like developing with eyes wide shut...

i can't see any zoom in and zoom out button inside my screen, thus, i can't zoom out the map.

i am using htc hd2 with winmo 6.5
