    I've just downloaded the last version 0.2.1a which was abandoned in 2008 and as with you I got the controls plus "Connecting to access point..." on the bottom screen and a grey screen on top but I pressed the left arrow on my dpad and have "Downloading..." on that. I know my Wi-Fi works. Launching via Moonshell gets a bit more response (the downloading disappears after a few seconds) but nothing more. I suspect that google has made changes to it's Google Maps Keyhole Server so this programme has become obsolete. You would need to get hold of the source code and find a programmer to get this project up and running again.

    I did discover that DSMaps did download stuff but what it was and what it did I don't know. It created a new folder in the root of my card called DSMaps and then created a few more folder with files with a .GMT but what they are and what they do are anyones guess.

    If I do remember well it is Google map tiles, must be the cache.

    O.K. It downloads them but doesn't display them. Well that's interesting. It's a start at least to getting somewhere.

    Creating a cache file doesnt mean it downloads it, it can be created to be used after for the download :s
