Google Earth alternative for Android tablet?
I quite like the idea of an external GPS (which I have) hooked up to a cheap Android tablet, this would give a big screen and potentially my own customisable map sets, but what software to use?
Is it true that Google Earth on an Android Tablet has the KML/KMZ functionality reduced/disabled? If so has anyone used any other software to show on a map where the gps says you are? I'm at home creating content for the maps so I'm just looking for somewhere to view it with realtime gps updates.
I have a Motorola Defy running Android, which is waterproof and dustproof. I also have a Hema Navigator which is for in-vehicle use only.
I have download Androiz from the Market and it uses my calibrated maps from the Hema Navigator (Oziexplorer ozf3 format). It works very well on the limited testing that I have done - about 3000km. The only issue I have to date is that the cursor pointer is hollow and can be hard to see sometimes, but it is always somewhere in the centre of the screen.
The maps I have are all the Hema Australian maps plus all the 250k topographical maps of Australia, as well as some geographical maps that I have calibrated using the free version of Oziexplorer.
