To run it you need to copy over the sourcedir and do:
'ipkg install python-pycairo python-pygtk python-netclient python-xml
python-html python-netserver python-crypt python-threading'
before running gui.py
Everybody likes screenshots:
see http://scap.linuxtogo.org/ for some more screenshots
The zoom feature is quite nice after getting used to it, and the menu
buttons are nicely thumb-sized as well.
It does need some kind of busy indicator, since the neo is quite slow
and will most likely download maps over a slooooow link like gprs.
This looks like a nice app, and it's almost as nice as maemo-mapper, but
waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay nice than gpsdrive :)
 This works in angstrom, no idea if the openmoko feeds have the stuff .
koen at dominion.kabel.utwente.nl will go go away in december 2007, please
use k.kooi at student.utwente.nl instead.
