    psp MapThis! is out

    I just entered my first public release of the viewer to NEO summer coding contest 2006 (http://www.neoflash.com/compos.htm).. so here is the details:

    MAP THIS! GPS MAP VIEWER FOR PSP
    -------------------------------------------------


    short video clip:

    DISCLAIMER
    ----------

    It is not fully tested and therefore should be used with caution.
    I shell not be responsible for any damages and/or legal problems which may arise from using this
    application & underlying hardware setup.
    This software acquires image data from Google Maps online service. Please read and understand Google Maps' "Terms of Use"
    agreement before using this application.



    MAIN FEATURES
    -------------
    - 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.
    - Customizable map size, level of detail and coverage.
    - Ability to display zipped maps (currently buggy)
    - Ability to display satellite and hybrid maps from Google.
    - WIFI map retrieval: ability to acquire and store map data to memory stick over WIFI
    - Linux/Cygwin script is also provided to generate a map of given size and detail for a given location.
    - GPS support: ability to read and interpret NMEA sentences from a GPS receiver communicating through PSP's serial port.
    Rather simple DYI hook up with GPSlim 236 receiver from Holux is explained in following thread:
    http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=30035
    In GPS mode there are following features:
    - Speed, direction, altitude, latitude, longitude, number of satellites in view.
    - NORTH UP mode: map is displayed with NORTH always on top. The arrow in the middle turns to shows current direction.
    - TRACK UP mode: map rotates so that direction of movement is always from top down.
    - Record GPS data (captures NMEA sentences in gps.txt file for later replay)
    - POI/Attractions data support. Ability to select and display different types of attractions.
    - PSPSDK compatible source code provided.



    INSTALLATION
    ------------

    1.5 users: copy contents of 1.5 folder to ms:/PSP/GAME
    1.0 use EBOOT.PBP from 1.0 folder with data files from 1.5 folder
    2.0+ try using EBOOT.PBP from NOGPS folder with data files from 1.5 folder
    2.7+ generate maps of up to 32x32 size with provided cygwin script and html files,
    copy them on MS and view through the PSP's browser.

    View the attached README file for further details...


    Go to NeoFlash forums (http://www.neoflash.com/forum/index.....html#msg20991) for binaries and vote for me :-)

    Just if you want to use the GPS functionality...
    You can still use it w/o GPS for viewing maps, etc..

    Also, the application is configured to startup in "FAKEFEED" mode, to demo the GPS stuff using pre-recorder NMEA feed...
    check the config file if you want to change that part..

    Has anyone tried this with 2.5 yet?

    I have a ceramic white japanese 2.5 and can't find a japanese 2.6 firmware file to upgrade with so that I could try to downgrade to 1.5. If anyone can help out with this it'd be great, thanks.

    Thanks,
    Jay
