Simple tile map
Maep is a tile based map utility for services like openstreetmap, google maps and virtual earth. This is the same map renderer that's also being used by GPXView and OSM2Go. Maep is meant to easily be included into other programs and to become a universal map widget for the Maemo5 platform.
Hi, This app is wonderful!!! Although I have a small problem, after I installed it; the device got a little slower. I rebooted and still it is slow, I used "top" command in terminal and there was now over usage from any app and I don't have and installed skins. can anybody help?
muy buena aplicación con posibilidades de cargar fácil y rápido diferentes proveedores de mapas como google maps, aunque todavía no pude generar rutas y puntos de destinos
This is maybe the best application for basic navigation. I am just now in Antigua, and OVI maps are very basic, most streets missing. Also it doesnt work with the GPS receiver. Maep found the location and also could show it on the Open street maps. How ever, as I do not have a dataplan, I would like to download the maps beforehand. Where are the pictures (or vector files) stored? Is there a way to preload them without "walking" the path a home first.
It uses the geonames.org database. Whatever that doesn't handle also won't be handled by maep.
Try some simple things first like "new york" and then try some more precise requests. However, street level search is not supported at all. Google can do that (see http://pagesperso-orange.fr/universimmedia/geo/loc.htm). So whoever is willing to donate some simple example how to do the required requests for google may raise his hand. I am willing to add that feature to maep.
Looks great, but somehow I Can´t use "search" option. Program keeps saying "no places matching the search term could be found", no matter what street I search.
Hi - it keeps improving, thanks so much! I've noticed that you use geonames.org for the search feature, but not all POI from this source show up when searching.
Smooth updates have two problems:
a) The map constantly moves which makes it hard to click things on the map b) This needs more updates and thus increases CPU load and thus power consumption
No, that kind of tracking already works in this current version. Just hit the GPS icon and the map will follow you until you manually drag it.
I see. Is it possible to increase the update-interval? It's a little bit ugly when driving (the map constantly "jumps").
Oh, thanks for that report. There is indeed a delay before the next GPS position is being processed and the circle is updated afterwards. I just fixed this in SVN, the next release will fix this.
Very slick - does one thing, and does it damn well!
The way the location "circle of doubt" reacts to zoom seems to be a little buggy though (or at least laggy).
Professional, beautiful, useful. It does a lot of location-related things for me fast and easily and for those tasks is a more than welcome replacement for the pre-installed map-application.
There could be some options for customization in the GUI, though. (Format of lat/lon, copy location, which map to start with...)
This is meant to be a very basic map utility, not much more than the bare map. I am currently adding tracking support and will also add simple POI support. But i am not planning to make it more complex as i don't really like those complex all-in-one programs like maemo mapper.
There are two solutions for you:
a) You wait for maemo mapper to become stable on maemo5
b) Someone takes my widget and makes a routing capable application from it
