Hi Guys,
Time for a project that isn't just a hole or bolts in a dashboard.

After nearly four years programming for PSP I decided to write my own! :)

Much sexier display than my 60CSx.
Unlike the other PSP GPS app that works with raster imagery,
this one knows what street or contour it is on.
Uses Polish format maps produced with Mapedit,
which basically means it's Garmin compatible.

Hi,
There is a genuine Sony GPS for the PSP, it's available overseas,
but there was never a GPS mapping program that could be used in Australia or USA.
My program can also connect to a serial GPS through the PSP
serial port which is in the headphone connector.

Someone else made a raster map GPS program for the PSP,
called "Mapthis!" so I'm not the first to write any sort of GPS.

BTW: My program has a page on my personal site:
