Here is a modified version of John Costigan's Maemo-Mapper v1.1 with a 
second set of URI/Cache, e.g. for easy switching between street maps 
and satellite images. The ESC-hardware-key now toggles the URI/Cache 
settings, while in the original version it toggles show/hide tracks.
The modified version also has the option to operate with closed 
device cover: you can disable the default behaviour to disconnect 
the bluetooth GPS connection when the cover is closed, if you 
unset 'Tools' -> 'Control Panel' -> Connectivity' -> 'Disconnect when 
cover on device' 
(Gconf-Key /system/osso/connectivity/IAP/disconnect_on_cover).
John's Maemo-Mapper focuses on in-car navigation. My modifications 
are useful for non-car navigation, e.g. while cycling, hiking, 
walking, running: satellite images are sometimes (but not always ;-) 
more useful than street maps for off-road navigation, operation with 
closed device cover is useful if you temporarily store the device in 
a pocket, but still want to record your track.
Before I already applied these modifications to version 1.0.1, now I 
ported my modifications to the current version 1.1.
