This application is similar to GoogleMaps but it’s relying on OpenStreetMap.org and it has GPS support as well as GSM triangulation (if no GPS device is present). The latest version features a new button to force re-download of already viewed tiles, word wrapping for GraphicText, show arrow with direction when moving instead of pin, added HD2 multitouch feature (pinch-to-zoom), bookmark functionality, a re-designed the context menu, and added reverse geocoding, amongst many more.

— NEWSFLASH —

A development blog for OpenMobileMaps is located here: HERE!

I wrote an application similar to GoogleMaps but it’s relying on OpenStreetMap.org.
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!

Continue to the聽application thread.

But it'll be a long time...
