Maybe. AndNav2 will have better chances, imo. :)

Google Sucks!

Postby NevinM » Mon Nov 17, 2008 8:41 am

It was really nice of Google to put a whole bunch of tools for mappinging in the SDK that you are not allowed to use. Maybe Google should have considered all of these things and put the paper work in place so that tools that are available are also legal to use freely before they released them. This is about the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. You brag up the many features for mapping and street view ect. in your SDK, yet you are not allowed to use them for navigation. Thats great Google, nothing like wasting hours and hours of programming just to get kicked in the balls by Google...

The actual problem is not Google themselves but the conflicting data-providers behind
You are allowed to use them, but under very special restrictions :lol:

If everything goes right AndNav2 will be based to 0% on Google-Maps-Data. :)

!!! GO OpenStreetMaps !!!

Plans for the skywriting were announced ahead of time , with Beck encouraging witnesses to email her photos. She was inspired by the "Surrender Dorothy" skywritten message in "The Wizard of Oz." http://www.mtsconverter.de
"It's obviously a very open-ended and consequently puzzling sort of project," she said of Sunday's event. "I can see why it would leave people with questions." http://www.mtsconverter.de/mts-converter-for-mac.htm
