I am of the idea that a navigation system would be THE killer-app for
the openmoko, and I personally know many persons that would also pay
extra money to have a navigator on a phone. We have various
possibilities: we could try to make some sort of deal with TomTom,
write our own system based on OSM (and btw we could let the openmokos
submit data to osm at the same time to increase accuracy), or (and
that's my favorite) we could try to make something based on google
maps/earth. The whole engime is already there, as are also the
maps. Just make some changes to add gps capabilities, and it's great!
