I saw this project, and I think this is a nice database. I’m now wondering, if I could use this database for navigating through the world.
I currently have got a quite old PocketPC with Windows CE 4.2 and just as old Falk 2.0. Do you know good navigation software for this device? It would be nice, of course, if it also provides a “street-add-feature” that I can use to update your database, if I find a “new” street.
I’m also suggesting to buy the openmoko mobile. So it would be nice, if you gave hints for software for this platform, too.
Of course, I’m not fixed to openstreetmap. However, I would prefer OSS software and maps (and therefore, openstreetmap looks quite interesting). And I wouldn’t buy commercial ones.
I couldn’t load NW-Germany, it said: “map too big”. So I tried with Belgium…
I don’t know, if it didn’t detect my display’s resolution correctly. However, I just have 3 buttons, it asks me some strange questions, but I didn’t make it to calculate a route for me.
It crashed multiple times in the few minutes I was testing it.
The other applications seem to be either Linux only or commercial or Java. However, my PDA didn’t want to open a .jar-file. On the homepage of Sun they tell either the OEM should have shipped Java, or I couldn’t have Java. And I didn’t find an alternative JRE for WinCE
So, does someone know a JRE for WinCE 4.2? Or are there other applications for WinCE?
And is there experience with Linux / Openmoko? Would I get a good navigation system with the Neo Freerunner?
