gMap – a subtitute for Google Maps for Nokia Belle fp1 & fp2

UPDATE

gMap version 2.0 has been released with full support for touch, weather tab, favorites option and better UI.
check it out here: dynamicguru.com/symbian/gmap-2-0-now-with-weather-favorites-feature/

Google Maps is still not supported on most Symbian devices running Belle fp1 & fp2.
So I decided to create a simple map application on my own.
This is a very primitive map app that uses the Google Static Maps API and Google Geocoding API.
Though it can not really substitute for Google Maps app, it does fulfill my map needs to a large extent.

Features :

  • Displays current position using in-built GPS
  • Ability to search for places
  • Zoom In/Out
  • Move map using on-screen arrows
  • Displays distance and direction of your current position from the map position
