I am trying to put together a little android application that works out
where it is, and sends the info on a text message to someone (it is for
someone who can not talk well).
The location finding and SMS bits are working now, but the location is
lat/lon, which is not very friendly for the recipient - I would like an
I could use an internet service for this, but I would really like it to
work without an internet connection, so am thinking of including an OSM
data extract on the phone sd card and trying to use that first, before
falling back to an internet service.
I wondered if anyone knows of any ready made code to process and search OSM
data on Android/java before I write something? I guess Vespuccii must
have all the parsing stuff in it, but I will be needing to handle more data
that you would have in an editor - can anyone give me any pointers to the
best way to do this on a low powered mobile device?
