  Hi Cezary,

I merged your 'GPS-Info patch' for Maemo-Mapper 1.1
with my set of patches.

My patches modify the 1.1 version of John Costigan's Maemo Mapper to 
provide a second set of URI/Cache, e.g. to alternate between street 
maps and satellite images. The ESC-hardware-key now toggles the 
URI/Cache settings. (In the original version it toggles show/hide 

The modified version also introduces the possibility to operate with 
closed cover. (This is very useful for outdoor activities, such as 
hiking, walking, climbing, kanuing, cycling,..) If you want to 
disable the default behaviour, which disconnects the bluetooth GPS 
connection when the cover is closed, you have to unset the global 
configuration parameter 'Tools' -> 'Control Panel' -> Connectivity' 
-> 'Disconnect when cover on device' 
(this is Gconf-Key /system/osso/connectivity/IAP/disconnect_on_cover).

Here are the patches to be applied against John Costigan's original 
source file maemo-mapper.c:


The complete modified source with all patches applied:

And an ARMEL-executable for testing:

No deb package yet.

To try this version, you must have ITOS2006 with Maemo-Mapper 1.1 
installed and then have to perform these step on the device via 
osso-xterm or ssh:

$ gainroot
# cd /usr/bin
# mv maemo-mapper maemo-mapper.orig
# wget http://armin-warda.de/maemo-mapper-1.1-cj-aw-5
# mv maemo-mapper-1.1-cj-aw-5 maemo-mapper
# chmod +x maemo-mapper

Not yet tested much.

  regards, Armin.

P.S.: ...how about merging PoI into this version?
