Not sure if anyone has posted this yet. I did a search but I couldn't find one, but for a new build, would it be possible to add support for Palm's WebOS? Essentially, webOS is linux.

All builds are Java/J2ME at this time, so there is no build for Android (which does not support J2ME but full Java), iPhone or Palm WebOS. Also there is no native version for Symbian or Windows Mobile - but those systems can run Java VMs. We're working on an Android port, as for the others I can't promise anything since they would involve a complete rewrite.

I'm not a programmer or anything, but might I suggest phasing out Java VM as today's smartphone developers seem to be doing. Also, not sure if this would help much for a WebOS version but on Precentral.net, they have an open source version of "longitude." http://www.precentral.net/homebrew-apps/longitude. I think, with a slight bit of serverside programming, you guys might be able to take full advantage of that program. I know there are many of us out there looking for a nifty little program like this. I personally loved it when I had my ic902.

Hi,

I think you're quite wrong about Java, the only phones that don't have Java are the iPhone and (it seems) Palm Pre. Blackberry and AndroidOS phones run java natively, all the other smartphones and most non-smartphones support java apps. Android is not supported by MGMaps yet, but it will be soon.

As for the longitude app link, thanks, I'll have a look at that application and see how it works.

Regards,
Cristian Streng
