OpenMobileMaps, alternative online maps for your WM device

Although there is an application called Google Maps Mobile preinstalled on almost every new Windows Mobile device, not every user is happy using services from such an “evil, privacy spying” companies like Google. Fortunatelly, there is an alternative mobile client called OpenMobileMaps used to access maps and other data on the online map server named OpenStreetMap. Sure, it is not as good as GMM but it is sufficient for all basic actions like viewing maps in many zoom levels, locking position using GPS or GSM triangulation, searching addresses, calculating routes and a few others. An internet connection is required to get the maps, however you can still download the map tiles with your PC and transfer it to your smartphone using JTileDownloader or get them directly on your mobile device using PDA TileManager so you can save your money and mobile bandwidth. You can get OpenMobileMaps for free in out freeware section now.
