Very nice. Is it difficult to adapt to work with cached google maps downloaded with MaemoMapper for offline reference?

Hey guys, I'm the developer of the Macuco Gmail Client (http://puelocesar.wordpress.com/2009...ent-for-maemo/). We could do something like Macuco for this webapp. I can do the Qt part and help with CSS theming.

I can do these buttons in pure CSS, but it won't run on MicroB I guess, but it will work great on a QtWebkit. What do you think?

One more thing, anyone knows if is possible to access the GPS hardware with Qt? If so, we can easily add GPS positioning feature to maeMaps

Bye!

Wouldn't it be more useful to use the spinn-your-finger-idea like in the browser for zooming instead of the buttons?

Dude! That is awesome! I didn't even know there was a OS2008 gmail client; I'm going to try this out ASAP!

I think we would LOVE something similar for google maps!!!

Once people are +/- ok with the usability, I'll cleanup the GUI, add some image buttons for navigation and then pack the thing in a package.
No Idea how to build that in CSS. They're just gradients with rounded edges (6px). When you move to a package with graphics I'd be more then happy to help if you need it, just let me know.

Thanks

looks grest, but reading the various posts, leads me to think that for most people a finger friendly interface option for maemo mapper would be the holy grail. it alrready does offline, routing etc.

unfortunately my coding skills extend no further than msdos batch files and a bit of vb.

You're right, maemomapper is much better. Also, eCoach can be used for many these things and more. The only reason for me doing this:
- It's superquick and easy
- A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush :-)

So twaelti, what do you think? Should I download your html and make the joshua theme, or you will do yourself?

I'm just asking to avoid duplicate work you know, if you are already doing that, it doesn't makes sense I do it again right?

By the way, I liked the idea. Right now I'm using Maemo Mapper, but it's interface is nothing like simple and user friendly. Web apps rocks!

Bye!

Thanks twaelti for this. This is a great idea. i really want to have google map for long time but it is too slow for me ( n800 + microb + google map = unusable)

After i tried yours, yours is fast and simple. Plus i find out "tear" lately so finally, i can use google map on mine.

i also made some changes on yours html
1.remove road,city,country,world button
2. use acsii code for arrows
3. add a marker on search location
4. add a "center" button. This will center the map to marker position.
5. change zoom level step from 2 to 1.
6. default map type set to "ROADS"
7. Increase the min zoom in level from 16 to 18

I really want to use D-PAD and zoom button to control the map but i don't know how to capture the D-pad event button by using javascript.

Microb is superb slow on this. Tear is MUCH faster

Thanks

Updated:

Work some more tonight, finally got the routing working.

Steps:
1. enter the address in "start" field and press "enter"
2. "end" field will apprear, enter the destination address and press "enter"
3. DONE.

*** remember to press enter to submit your address ***

After you enter a route, the "center" button will split into 2 buttons, Center A and Center B

if you don't need routing, just want to search for the address. You can put the address in the start field and press enter. This will show you the map of entered address

"reset" button = reload the page

Once again. Thanks op for the great app.
