I heard via Heliocity this morning that MGMaps is now available for my Helio Ocean. YAY! Another toy. :) Coolness. (Good, I needed something to cheer me up today.)
Mobile GMaps is a free app that displays maps from various sources, such as: Yahoo! Maps, Windows Live Local (MSN Virtual Earth), Ask.com, Open Street Map, etc. for use on Java J2ME-enabled mobile phones, PDAs and similar devices. It can connect to a GPS receiver over bluetooth or use internal GPS to display the map for your current position. You also have the ability to pre-download maps and store them on your memory card (assuming you have one) to use them on the go without having to get online and wait for them to download.
There’s a bold notation on the MGMaps page that Google Maps support was removed per Google’s request. Anyone surprised? Me neither.
To install Mobile GMaps on your Helio Ocean, browse over to this location: http://wap.mgmaps.com/helio.html
NOTE: Be sure to read over the notes posted on Heliocity to properly configure your install!
Remember: this is an unofficial application for Helio devices. Any problems you have with it cannot be dealt with through Helio, so donâ€™t bug ’em. If it messes up your device in any way, itâ€™s no fault but your own.
I’ve already installed and configured it and spent the better part of my lunchtime playing with it. Pretty neat and MUCH faster than the Google mobile app!
Thanks Heliocity guys! :mrgreen:
