You don't know it yet, but you have a GPS device in your possession right now - your PSP. Deniska's entry to the Neo Flash Summer Coding Contest for PSP Applications called Map This! turns your PSP into a map viewer in a snap. So why buy those GPS systems that would cost you an arm and a limb when you can just download this application and follow the very simple instructions?
This is not the first time that we've featured Map This! on QJ, matter of fact, it was still a very buggy version when we covered it. However this new release has tons of features we're sure you will enjoy. But, word of advice, this software is distributed under GPL license and provided for education purposes only. It is not fully tested and therefore should be used with caution.
Now let's get down to business.
* Scroll through large (up to 65536x65536 pixels) maps.
* Zoom in/out. The number of zoom levels depends of on the size of the map.
* Large coverage. The program uses imagery from Google Maps, which currently have pretty good coverage of North America, Western Europe, Australia, Japan. Visit Google maps, to find out if they provide required coverage for your location.
