Google Maps Mobile

Note to self: somewhere along the line, when I wasn't looking, the Google Maps implementation for the Palm went from mildly useful to bloody cool. Even without the pseudo-GPS capability (available on the Centro, but not my old Treo), they've managed to evolve it to the point where it can mostly replace the map book, with directions, zooming, "find near". satellite views, and generally most of what I expect from Google Maps. Which means I can mostly stop wasting paper printing the things out.

(Yes, yes -- once I have a Garmin or Dash, that will probably be even better. But expensive new toys will wait until I have an income again; this one I've already got...)
