OpenMobileMaps v1.6

Yes, finally I finished work on version 1.6! Go and get it!
Watch OpenMobileMaps running on HTC HD2
and on my good old HTC Wizard !

A development blog for OpenMobileMaps is located here: HERE!

I wrote an application similar to GoogleMaps but it's relying on
It's finger friendly and showing the map on fullscreen.

GPS support and GSM triangulation (if no GPS device is present) is built in.

The downloaded map tiles are stored on your phone/storage and only new ones are downloaded.

It's tested and working with all possible resolutions, with internal GPS and external GPS. And it should work on all Windows Mobile devices with .NET CF 3.5 installed.

Tell me what you think of it and please find some bugs!

If you like OpenMobileMaps and appreciate the hard work and time I spent on developing it then don't hesitate to DONATE!
Any amount of money keeps me motivated to further develop OpenMobileMaps!
