[maemo-users] Maemo-Mapper script?

Mike, and anyone else trying to deal with this issue:

Thanks for the help. I did find out that for some reason Maemo-Mapper was
crashing while trying to download the "area maps", turned out that I had
once again filled my internal storage space. I moved the DB file over to my
SD card and everything works like a charm.

I went over to www.openstreetmaps.org, selected "Export", manually
highlighted the area I wanted, and then used the coordinates to do the
download into Mapper.
