I’d like to use an offline vector map (not bitmap) with more or less up-to-date map data on my Windows Mobile 6 Professional (Windows CE-based, not related to Windows Phone) device. (These devices typically have only 64 MiB RAM, which constraints them quite a bit.)
OpenStreetMap would be nice, but I’d not say no to commercial solutions.
My requirement is that I’d be able to add countries or even parts of countries (regions) to my Micro-SD card, which would then allow me to fully use the offline vector map, with and without(!) GPS reception. Navigation (turn-by-turn, or even just drawing me a suggested route on the map) is optional but would be nice. I’d want to be able to add other countries, or parts thereof, later, and to update the map data. My requirements are pretty Euro-centric, but I will need, for example, decent coverage of Bosna i Hercegovina for a planned vacation. (Which is one of the reasons for wanting this offline; roaming prices are large.)
The software also absolutely must allow for me to enter WGS84 coordinates in several formats, at least “decimal digits” (
d.dddddd,d.dddddd) and “Geocaching standard” (
dd mm.mmm N d mmm.mmm E). Bonus for functions like waypoint management, projection (X metres in Y degrees), and whatever is useful for some geocaching, although I also have other software for that.
Also optional but probably useful: public transportation information.
Navigation, if any, should be car for large scale (maybe include TMS (online) as an option), and include pedestrian for small scale navigation.
I need a 2D map (I get actually ill from 3D), north up, and vector (not bitmap; I have software for that, but OSM blocks MOBAC). With OSM, I’d like to have a layer similar to Mapnik (but ideally without some of the less useful information.)
I’ve looked at the OSM wiki, but most of the software listed either no longer exists, or is no longer developed in favour of an Android so-called “App”, or has got a website from which I cannot gather any information (e.g. by being written in Russian).
