richard sent me this pic a while ago:
It’s from someones mobile at the xmas 2006 OSM meetup. It’s an osmarendered image put in to some magic app on a nokia mobile… If anyone remembers more info please add it to the comments. Anyway, a sign of things to come?
Hi, this was from my phone – its using Trekbuddy j2me application and a bluetooth GPS reciever to collect tracks. Its a nokia 6230i.
I used osmarenderer and inkscape to get a nice png of the area then calibrated the image and sliced it up, then uploaded to the phone. I’d like to see some easier way of automating this – a standalone program, or JOSM plugin I hope to be writing soon.
It saves tracks as nmea (1 second) and gpx (>10 seconds). At present it doesnt show the current track that you are recording live, and its not open source, but is free(beer) and frequently updated, with a good forum.
I’ve had a look at trekbuddy, and a few other mobile phone j2me application for osm use on my blog: http://thinkwhere.wordpress.com/tag/j2me/
p.s. I took another (slightly clearer) pic of OSM on the phone at the bottom of the page here:
I googled the words TrekBuddy and have found http://www.linuxtechs.net/kruch/tb which shows how it can be done on some phones. Hope this Helps
I’ve posted a picture to my flickr account of osmarendered maps on my iriver h340 DAP running rockbox.
As the map is just a JPEG image it’ll work on quite a few DAPs, including iPods if one should so wish.
oh, please, please, details… 😉
