Mobile phone users want to display other maps instead of just Google maps on their devices. Mobile GMaps enables users to view Yahoo! Maps, Windows Live Local, Ask. com, Open Street Map, and other sources on Java J2ME-enabled mobile phones, PDAs, and other devices.

Brief Description: 

Mobile GMaps is a free application that displays maps from Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Windows Live Local (MSN Virtual Earth),, Open Street Map and other sources, but only on Java J2ME-enabled mobile phones, PDAs and other devices. MGMaps can connect to a GPS receiver over bluetooth or use internal GPS features on some phones in order to automatically display the map for your current position. You can pre-download maps and store them on your memory card in order to use them on the go without accessing the network.
