    google GPS integration

    So in the old thread, someone mentioned that it was only a matter of time before someone built this functionality.

    Well, it seems the time has come:

    Probably requires an active internet connection though, i haven't tried it!

    this is pretty damn cool, works like a charm.
    Now if they build a frontend for it so the maps run fullscreen and a toggle to hide/show the search options on the right hand side this would be great.
    And make some kind of utility that would download the maps by state and store them localy i would be set.

    seeing as how quickly someone did this, and not even haveing map data for the country he lives in, the guys at google have got to be working on something, they would be dumb as hell not to.

    thanks for the link

    I doubt. Any mapping software keeps maps in raster format with highly compressed data. In order to keep data in GIF format you will have to store huge number of files.
    i.e. with 1000x1000 m map images. In order to store 300x300km state, you will have to keep 90000 images. with 100kb each, you will end up with 9Gb of data.
