It is a self contained webpage that you can get from my server. Simply open it in the Maemo Webbrowser, start typing and hit ENTER to launch the search. The text entry field will be autoselected after each action, so you can always just type another search and press ENTER to get there.

For more independence, you can download it to your device and store it locally in MyDocs, then launch it through the File Manager and bookmark it from inside the Browser (Sometime in the future, I might package it for installation through the App manager). It also works on OS2008, as the location bar only covers the bottom line of the page.

It uses the Google Maps API v3, so no need for an API key.

Glad for feedback, as this is an untested initial release.
Nice... it works in other browsers and the N8**'s too.

Have you tried the traffic layer yet?
