New Mobile GMaps version

Mobile GMaps is a FREE application that displays maps from Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Windows Live Local (MSN Virtual Earth), Ask.com, Open Street Map and other sources on Java J2ME-enabled mobile phones, PDAs and other devices. MGMaps can connect to a GPS receiver over bluetooth or use internal GPS features on some phones in order to automatically display the map for your current position. You can pre-download maps and store them on your memory card in order to use them on the go without accessing the internet.

v1.38.04 - Bug fixes and small improvements (November 5th, 2007)
A new version of Mobile GMaps is out, with a number of improvements:

- Nextel/Motorola iDEN support updated — positioning now defaults to assisted GPS, several problems were fixed.
- Motorola location API is now included in the main (generic) version of MGMaps, and it should work on Motorola E1000, A920 and others.
- The QJAE GPS API (Sprint) was updated to prefer assisted-GPS over standalone GPS. - This sacrifices accuracy for quicker fixes and more stable GPS positioning.
- The "Browse" option in Settings/Map Browsing was updated, it now searches for a folder containing a cache.conf file and it no longer requires for the folder to be named MGMapsCache.
- Support for the OpenStreetMap OSMARender map layer was added. You can enable it in Settings/Map Types.
- Added option to rotate map by 180 degrees, key "7" can be used to sequentially rotate the map.
- A scaled image is now displayed while zooming in (previously such an image was displayed only when zooming out).
- Added option to "fake" user-agent (Settings/Advanced) in order to make MGMaps work with some carriers and plans like O2 Germany's WAP.
- Some fixes for the GPS, zoom, key shortcuts and other settings.
