Mario Advisor v.0.61 UPDATE
Mario Advisor is a free java utility to display Garmin IMG maps in your mobile. Free garmin maps can be downloaded from many sources around the web (see this and this search engines), or translated from Open Street Map data (see conversion details and resources ). You can even create your own maps with the aid of GPSMapEdit and cGPSmapper.
External Maps installation:
Create a maps folder in your mobile's root filesystem (JSR75 needed) and copy Garmin IMG files. No previous conversion is needed. Mario Advisor will display map data and labels for roads, Points Of Interest and cities. Search capabilities are under development.
Internal Maps installation:
Maps can also be stored inside the Jar file, to avoid the confirmation request every time a file is accessed. To do so, copy maps in the "maps" folder inside the Jar, and update the file "map_list.txt" with the names of the files included. Check your mobile can intall the new Jar, since midlet size will be bigger.
Internal JSR179 and Bluetooth external GPS with NMEA sentencies are supported. When GPS connection is ON, view is centered in current location.
