Description by Cristian Streng
Mobile GMaps is a FREE application that displays maps from various sources like Yahoo! Maps, Windows Live Local, Ask.com and Open Street Map on Symbian and Java J2ME-enabled mobile phones, PDAs and other devices. MGMaps can connect to a GPS receiver over bluetooth or use internal GPS features on some phones in order to automatically display the map for your current position.
To download Mobile GMaps, open http://wap.mgmaps.com on your phone in the web/wap browser. Here are some key features of the application:
- Maps and satellite imagery: view various types of maps and aerial images, zoom in and out, mark favorite places with map pushpins.
- GPS connectivity: connect to a GPS device over bluetooth or use the internal GPS to view maps or aerial imagery for your current location. Enable GPS synchronization to continuously move the map as you move around, view your position, speed and heading.
- Search for places or businesses, view the results including addresses and phone numbers, get step-by-step directions. Do you want to call any of them? You can do that directly from Mobile GMaps!
- Favorites: store your favorite places or search results to jump quickly to any of them, or send them by SMS to your friends.

For pure mapping, this one gets my thumbs up too.
This could not work better. Brilliant.
Really nice software. I downloaded some of the 'stored' maps so I can use the app in offline mode. Very cool.
This is one of the best map apps I've ever used on a phone. Apparently, it was one of the first.
