OpenMobileMaps is an app that is being developed by Cipher over at XDA. This app is very similar to GoogleMaps but it relies on openstreetmap.org. Some of the features of this app are:

  • showing map in fullscreen
  • finger friendly user interface
  • map tiles are automatically downloaded if internet connection is available
  • map tiles are stored locally for offline use
  • GPS support and GSM triangulation
  • show actual position on map
  • follow-mode to automatically scroll the map
  • search addresses (testing)
  • calculate routes (not yet implemented)
  • gps and gsm tracking (not yet implemented)
  • choose between different OSM servers (not yet implemented)

Download this app here. It is still a work in progress. So try it out and give the developer some feedback at his XDA thread.
