Route-Me: iOS map library

Route-Me: iOS map library

Route-Me is an open source map library that runs natively on iOS. It's designed to look and feel much like the inbuilt iOS map library, but it's entirely open, and works with any map source.

Currently, OpenStreetMap, Microsoft VirtualEarth, CloudMade, OpenAerialMap, OpenCycleMap, SpatialCloud, TileStream7, and two offline-capable, database-backed formats (DBMap and MBTiles) are supported as map sources.

Get CellId and other Imformation from mobile phones via J2ME

Without GPS or Network Operator we can still use the Location Based Service, via the help of CellId(Cell ID the location of Cell Identities of GSM-networks). Google has one enormous database of cell ids which are linked to a longitude and latitude position, that why Google Map client know where you are even you have no embedded GPS--it is not open.
