I've not been able to get any versions of maemo-mapper to compile on a
recent desktop (ubuntu8.10 and centos 5.3) but it does look pretty good.
I have got 'gosmore' to compile and run, but it's interface is a little
clunky, it does render open street map quite nicely tho. Also got it to
run on my ebook reader (irex iliad) for the ultimate in daylight
readable mapping :)
Haven't actually got any GPS hardware yet, and it seems to be
ridiculously expensive to buy stuff from Aus retailers.
