OSG-Maps displays the OpenStreetMap map on a virtual globe in 3D. Great for navigating in the city and yellow pages search. Buildings are displayed as 3D bodies including roof shapes. By using the integrated 3D acceleration on the device, a very smooth navigation in the map is achieved. The transitions between zoom level is seamless - there is no switching between different display modes.
OSG-Maps provides search functions for addresses and POIs (Points of Interest). Searching for POIs is a great function for finding interesting facilities and places. For example, all nearby restaurants can be displayed on the map while strolling through the town. Moreover, many POI entries contain detailled information on opening hours, type of facility, contact address, telephone numbers, and accessibility for wheelchair users.
Routes can be computed from the current GPS location to POIs within a range of 200km. They can be computed for cars, bicycles and pedestrians taking into account turn restrictions.
OSG-Maps fetches all maps and data live from the internet. Thus, all content is always up-to-date. By using compression for downloading data, the required data volume and used bandwidth is limited.
