    At the above link, you can now download .PRC files directly, as well as the ZIP file.

    • Added new preference for Map Type. Selections are MapQuest & Google Maps. IMPORTANT - This is only for MAPS, NOT Directions. Directions still always use MapQuest. Note that on some devices Google maps may not display at all. To get a large version of the map images on Treos, you'll want to set your browser view to Wide Page Mode. In Optimized mode, the bitmap is reduced to fit within the browser window, but it still produces a bit better map than the MapQuest PDA version.
    • Added new Maps button on main screen to provide a simple address, city, state, zip entry form (with data saved between sessions for later) to whichever map type (Google or MapQuest) you've got selected to use.
    • Added new preference for Directions Destination, replacing the previously added checkbox Send Directions to Memo. Now the choices are "Browser", "Memo + Go To", "Memo Save Only", and "Ask Each Time". The first choice calls up your selected browser with the MapQuest Directions URL. The second choice parses the result of a directions query into a new memo record and switches to the Memos application with that new record showing. The third option creates the memo, but does not change over to the Memos application. The final option forces a dialog box to appear on each directions search to give you the choice among the other 3 options.
    • Fixed for no longer getting multi-page business results.
    • Upon re-entry to a screen where the first field has text, it will be highlighted, thus making it easier to start a new query by just starting to type.
    • Removed dialer type preference, force to direct dial on new installs. Needed space on the screen and this option only applied to a couple of older smartphone types no longer in widespread use.
    • Change to only send first 3 digits of Canadian Postal Codes to maps and directions, as the 2nd 3 digits would result in MapQuest errors.
    • More intelligent handling of directions response containing: "MapQuest found a similar location" when using directions to memo feature. DA will attempt to execute the requery that the page is suggesting, with MapQuest's suggested changes to input parameters. DA will warn you when this happens, as the resulting requery MAY not be what you really wanted.
    • Renamed the "Addr Book" buttons on the Directions screen "Contacts" to reflect the application name that is in common use on later devices.

    Woohoo! Thanks, rlwhitt! Now that DA works cleanly (and very quickly) with Google Maps on my Sprint 650, I can ditch Kmaps entirely. I feel a donation coming on...

    The one thing I really like about Kmaps is the ability to move the map with the 5 way.

    Does the link to DA on post #1 replace Version 3.26 b2 ?

    definitely a paypal donation coming your way.

    however i have one problem. not exactly a DA problem, but when I access the google map I get a big red x where the map should be. does anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

    That's what I get myself, and why I put that warning in the notes about maybe not working on some devices. I wish I knew what it was as well, I'd rather see google maps myself. But I've had people with Verizon T650s (what I have) say it works fine for them.

    I hope someone can figure out what the deal is.

    Works great on my Verizon 650.

    Works great on my 700P too

    The red x is a zoom level issue on google maps, just change the zoom one step down or up. I can't remember but I think the default is a city view which has too much data. Zooming to the street level gives you what you want.

    Rick,

    I have noticed this with your previous version that I have, but this does the same thing. When I do a reverse lookup using a telephone number I get a person's address, but not the name. Am I doing something wrong or this is a limitation of yp.com?

    By the way excellent program. Have been sing it almost daily for the past 1 year.

    It's yp.com

    This doesn't happen all the time. Just every now and then.

    Any idea what's going on?

    The "1" thing also happens to me once in a while. I'm using a Cingular 1.17 Treo 650.
