    Scroll to page 16 for details...



    :::: Latest News [12/23/2006] ::::
    Google adds detailed maps for Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Brazil, some parts of Africa and Eastern Europe to it's map service. Here is the article: http://googlemapsmania.blogspot.com/...hong-kong.html


    :::: News [12/20/2006] ::::

    1) Some chinese company makes and sells GPS-PSP cable, specifically for MapThis!
    2) New Beta version, featuring address geo-lookup, is available.

    :::See this thread for details:::




    NEW IN v0.4
    -----------
    - GPSFS format support. Map tiles are stored in a custom format for much faster transfer and access rate.
    Zip support for maps is discontinued (since it was too slow for large maps)
    - Added logic for low baud GPS devices (by Zero Altitude). To activate put SLOW_GPS=1 in config.txt
    - Straight and path distance calculation in map mode
    - Ability to add POI. ([X] in Map Mode)
    - POI search / display. ([O] from Attraction selector screen). List the names of up to 100 closest
    points of interest, which match your search criteria together with distances from current location
    - Variable read-speed for "GPS from file" mode (FAKEFEED=1). While re-playing your pre-recorded GPS data,
    press [X] to toggle re-play speed between x1,x3,x5,x7 speeds
    - Last position recall. The application memorizes the latest position and zoom settings for each map.
    - Improved map rotation logic for TRACK-UP mode. Use TURNSPEED variable in config.txt to specify the minimum
    speed at which screen rotation takes place. This allows to reduce screen rotation due to deviation in
    GPS coordinates while the device is not moving or moving slowly.
    - Google maps version updated to most recent in WIFI download mode.
    - "No UMD" bug is fixed. GPS read functionality does not depend on UMD in drive, wifi switch or
    hold button position.
    - STARTUPMAP=... option in config.txt allows to go directly to a specified map and enables the GPS mode.
    - Improved and hopefully mode informative help screen ([START] button)
    - New (faster) garbage collection logic (old logic used to crash application on large maps)
    - More accurate distance calculation in GPS mode.
    - Code cleanup (source code attached)
    - New version of Windows Map Download Tool by in7ane (GPSFS conversion/support, new map vendors and much more)

    Deniska, I won't lie, I've always admired your GPS applications, and now that there's a GPS receiver for the PSP, I am ITCHING to see what will happen. As soon as I can find one, I'm getting that GPS receiver.

    Keep in mind that Map This! has no support for Sony's original GPS receiver. The software bundled with Sony's receiver only covers Japan at the moment, and there is no indications that it will be expanded to cover any other parts of the world in near future...

    I'm with you on this one...
    The first part that is, I WILL NOT buy a GPS from Sony...
    Deniskas App has a much higher coolness factor to it.
    It will be interesting to see what kind of map pgor sony releases to go along with the App.
    Maybe we can use it too, you never know...
    I am installing the latest version o my PSP now.
    Once again...

    Deniska... You rock...
    I hope I don't sound like a groupie...
    But this really is the best app for the PSP in my opinion.
    I still would love to know how many people out there run this app....

    There is a cable you have to make, and it connects through the serial port(by the Audio Jack)
    I have a GPSlim236. Works like a charm...

    Actually, most of that information is already available on my dcemu site and forums (deniska.dcemu.co.uk)
    I'll be happy to answer any specific questions which were still not covered though...
