Mini Maps for Wear [ALPHA]

Mini Maps for Wear [ALPHA]


[ALPHA RELEASE]

A mini map for your Android Wear smart watch, pannable like Google Maps and powered by the Google Static Maps API. When opened, it should jump to your current GPS location if you have signal.

Double-tap the screen to re-center to your current location (requires GPS signal).
Long-press OR palm over your watch face to close the application.

This is intended to be a DEMO of what can be done with Android Wear, not a final product. Consider this an ALPHA release. Occasional glitches may occur and reports would be appreciated. If you find your watch not receiving data, try restarting Bluetooth on your phone (known occasional issue).

Future releases will be more polished once I start to iron out all the glitches. I am making this open source and welcome contributions from developers.

Good Start Good start, love the idea. Maps are very slow to load, sometimes don't load before the screen times out. Hope to see this app developed more!

Not feature-rich, but works It works for ped, not for driving. Yes, it's odd Google has left this to indies.

Works well.....but I would like to be able to enter an address with voice recognition or the flickkey keyboard. Would also like the navigate feature. Also like map to rotate with compass heading.
