    got my m3 real a few days ago. haven't put down the ds since [​IMG]

    anyone know and sites where i can download software for the ds (specific to the m3 real) ?

    a london A to Z in the ds is the kind of thing i'm really looking for. (alternately i could just put in a high resolution bmp of the city and zoom around but haven't been able to find one yet).

    Wow thats a cool bit of homebrew...
    but the thing is, no London map, you'd have to make your own.
    Unless you only wanted underground...

    Maps, assuming a basic image viewer is not what you want

    Treasures of Gaia: Streetmap and satellite view via google earth (requiring a wifi connection naturally) and so has pretty much what you want (no street index however which in my opinion is a must for London really). I made a thread about it under the news section way back and it should be in the downloads section.

    ConstellationsDS: maps the sky. Not what you wanted but it is nice.

    And the areforementioned amap4ds. Custom maps are possible and most of the big sections of london (city of london, waterloo/southbank, hammersmith.......) all have fairly detailed maps available if you were wishing to make a compilation.

    Personally though I assume you want this for in car/on foot for which a normal streetmap would probably be better (and make you less of a mugging target).

    those "custom maps" of london city etc... any idea what site i can get those off?

    and yeah i want em for when i'm in the car and stuff.

    not too worried about muggings.... i always wear a wrist strap...not exactly pure safety but at least no one can grab it and run off.

    What i plan to do with San Francisco but i have not done yet (procrastinating) is make my own. I am planning to use yahoo maps.com. Just get each section and put it in print view (then you will be able to save the image). You will have to do this a few times since each image will only be a section. Then paste all the sections together in photoshop. And then use an image resizer program so the file is not huge. and then just view it on my ds with the best picture homebrew out there. Which I think will be image viewer, but I will try others like map4DS.

    I found this idea on a forum for the Meizu MP3/Video player. It has an inbuilt picture viewer that has a thumbnail mode which splits the screen into 9 thumbnails. People chopped up maps and put them in a folder in 9 sequential sections so that it looked like the entire map when it was in thumbs. And then u clicked on the section u wanted and it jumped to full screen zoomed mode where u could scroll around.

    This overcame a problem with one single map file being too large. I'm sure the same thing could work on the DS, though I haven't even tried out any kind of image viewer yet as I only got mine. Good luck.

    Some of the viewing modes of comic book DS would be perfect for that cray-.

    As for the maps a combination of the major sites (yahoo, google etc) and tourist stuff should dig what you need up.

    theres also mapviewer DS. basically a large GIF viewer. its a little buggy though, and you gotta keep the map names under 8 characters.

    also i'm sure i remember a chinese map viewer.... but i doubt it'd be useful to you, i don't remember getting it to work myself.
