Please add WebMaps from http://openstreetmap.org. Downloading is really easy and there are no legal problems.

0<=zoom<=18, 0 is full earth
0<=x<2^zoom, from left to right
0<=y<2^zoom, from top to down
Mercator projection up to N85.051129.
Every tile is 256x256 pixel. So its completely like Google.

Openstreetmap has currently two tile renderer:
Mapnik:
sprintf(url,"http://tile.openstreetmap.org/%d/%d/%d.png",zoom,x,y);
Osmarender:
sprintf("url,"http://dev.openstreetmap.org/~ojw/Tiles/tile.php/%d/%d/%d.png",zoom,x,y);

Adding support in PathAway would speed up this project as it is then much easier to follow the unmapped streets.

/me too.

I'm not sure about the legality of using the much more comprehensive Google/Yahoo Maps (well, I'm almost sure it's not) – but I am aware of a few mapping applications out there that can make use of these. In any case, there's certainly no issues with using OpenStreetMap.

I spent far too may hours writing a script to automate MapAway. If PathAway could just download these using the phone/PDA's various data connections, that would be fantastic.

Any official comment on adding openstreetmap as a source for Web Maps? Would be *really* nice.
