 Have a look at which tiles the Google Maps app fetches versus what the
API fetches.  You will see that they will go to different servers.

There is no rocket science here (vector based drawings etc) - all you
get are prerendered PNG picture tiles (256x256 I think, or was it
128x128?). There's no way to alter any of that prerendered content.

Does anyone have a more detailed FAQ than the text on  My main concern is that GPS is
not listed anywhere in the hardware features - does it actually
support GPS, or not?

  Aside from that, I'm unclear on how the 3G bands work - what would
the actual bandwidth of this device be on AT&T, for example?



2. File access for native code


Need some pointers about file access permissions:

Here is what I have tried:

<my_package_name>/files/ using the API openFileOutput(). The
permissions of the file is as follows:
-rw-rw---- app_10   app_10          0 2008-12-23 09:17 testFile1.txt

The files folder itself has the permissions:
 drwxrwx--x app_10   app_10            2008-12-23 09:17 files

When I create a file using native code on /sdcard, the permissions are
as follows:
 ----rw-rw- system   system          0 2008-12-23 09:17
Is it right to say that native code process has "system" rights?

Now, when I create a file using the Java layer, I can open the same
file for "reading" through native code. But, I cannot open a file in
the same place using the native code with "writing" capability.  The
permissions of the "files" folder is "app_10", which is the userID of
the app. Right? Doesn't "system" trump "app_10" in terms of

In other words, the objective that I am trying to achieve is to create
a file inside native code at a place other than sdcard. Preferably,
application specific location.

Any document that anybody could point that would detail more about
security and permissions? I have already read But, it does not
deal with native code details.
