Hello George,

sounds very nice.
I just downloaded it and will give it a try this weekend
(I'm currently roaming, so no network on the Touch Pro.)

> Hi,
> Ive written some software for Windows Mobile to make on-the-road
> contribution to OSM possible. If any Windows Mobile 6 owning people would
> like to beta-test it, ive stuck it up at
> http://release.georgestyles.co.uk/GeorgeMap
> ive stuck some screenshots here

> Its only currently useful for filling in missing names from streets which
> already exist (without a name tag). It cannot yet create / edit the
> nodes that make a street (apart from splitting an existing street).
> At the moment its simply freeware. I want to GPL it, but need to open a
> sourceforge account etc etc, and havent had time yet...
> Features are
>     *  GPS Support (using WM GPS driver)
>     * Display OSM tiles from MapNik, OSMARender, CycleMap or CloudMade
>     * Query OSM for streets and nodes in the visible area
>     * Displays unnamed streets in red, named ones in green (and ones
>     by you in lighter green so you can see the difference you are making)
>     * Can query GPS points (although until I add node editing, that is
>     of useless)
>     * Program can check for newer versions and automatically install them
>     (if you ask it to...)
>     * Multi-threaded - tiles /data are downloaded in the background, as
>     uploads of changes.
>     * Ability to name unnamed streets (or change the name of existing
>     * Offline edit model - edits are held in the phone until you choose
>     sync them. This is needed because mobile coverage is not 100%
>     * Split / join ways (join dosent quite always work properly yet)
>     * Current GPS trail overlaid on map so you can see where you have
>     (plan to upload trails to OSM in near future)
> Should I email this to the dev list as well, since ive done some dev???
