We have this stuff, but I didn't think to use it for the first release of
OpenMoko. The rendering engine is totally closed source, expensive, and the
maps are even more expensive.

If there's enough interest, it might be cool to just sell the mapping data
and see if we can support an open source mapping engineer. Is this something
people would pay for?
