You mentioned navit in your posting, so I assume you're already using it to draw OSM maps on the FreeRunner, that's why I asked. ah, ok. well, yes, i have both installed, but imo tangogps is faster and more usable for general orientation, while navit focuses on guiding. at least that's my

I was wondering if anyone has a tar'd compilation of all the USA maps? don't have the url handy, but osm has a list of links providing daily/weekly/monthly updated tar balls of diffrent areas and the world. found it, see here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Planet.osm#Extracts
