Set your favourite map as a Live Wallpaper showing your current position. Maps include Ordnance Survey, Google, Satellite, Bing, OpenStreetMap, and USA VFR and IFR charts (aviation)
* Automatic position refresh
* Map caching (low data usage)
* Battery friendly (no GPS required)

I love the Live Wallpaper that ships with Google Maps and this is a super-juiced up version of it! The OS map view looks great, love it!
