Your going travelling to a new place, so you want up-to-date maps, and you want to read about what other people think about the places you might visit. You want to record and share your experiences, with both other mobile phone users and your friends back home.
Note: Map downloads are back (18/10/08), apologies for the outage.

Note: Downloading maps/postcodes costs
(depending on your tariff), you should download a small part of the map maybe at zoom 100m, and see how much it cost you, the v0.09 release encapsulates the binary protocol inside LZMA (7zip) to reduce the cost, v0.12 permits downloading just updates to areas already downloaded, other ideas include (simplifying the map, etc). Also you should note that at present the FTPC download downloads the entire list on each download request, overwriting previous postcodes, (about 40k compressed - Dec 08), only do this if you really want postcodes (mostly UK).
