Much of the inspiration for Maemo Mapper and how it operates comes from Google Maps and Google Earth. They are fantastic applications that (in my opinion) more than warrant being used as a model for usable networked applications. I would like to thank Google for providing these applications and the inspiration for Maemo Mapper.
Although Maemo Mapper can be used generally as a map browser, allowing full pan-and-zoom capabilities, it is geared toward use with a bluetooth GPS Receiver. But no matter how you use it, you need to have access to map data.
If you have access to an online repository of map data, then you can cruise with Maemo Mapper in online mode, which is a little bit like Google Earth ported to Maemo. As you pan and zoom around the map, map data is downloaded to your Map Cache in real time, and the screen gets refreshed on-the-fly as new data is downloaded. It's actually pretty fun to watch, so if you're surfing the world from your home WLAN, or if you're hooked up to a bluetooth phone with internet access, then you don't have to worry about acquiring map data - it's all automatic. Maps are downloaded into your specified Map Cache, so be mindful of your available file system space.
