Ahh, but if you have an Internet connection live it will fetch
the tiles from Google Maps and plot you on there!

To show this get your FR online and then run the Mapping Demo
with the sample dataset (just an NMEA log file) and watch it
follow the person on Google Maps.

What it doesn't do is cache those images, which would be rather
neat if you could pre-populate with them, but then it is just a
demo and the source is there to be hacked with.. ;-)
