What exactly do you mean by custom map. I am in the process of making an overlay for a festival site using photoshop to draw over a google map image if thats the kinda thing you mean?

Hmm ive never come across that map cruncher program. All i am doing is taking a screenshot of a place in google maps, then open it up in photoshop and then draw what i want onto the map and then using the overlay class just place the image i have made back onto google maps.. simples.

OK nice, but what about programming that easily in ANdroid, so you can share these mapps with friends and integrate that overlayed map in an application?
