Discovered openstreetmap for me

Hi, is a very cool project. Just discovered it for me, and spent the weekend with tracking and editing my hometown by car. Have a look here to see.

I am using SportsTracker for my Nokia E90 and JOSM for the editing at home.

Also checked for TrekBuddy on the phone to use a real moving map on the cellular. Maybe you want to use a little help for generating the map files for TrekBuddy?

Still much to learn, stay tuned for reports.


EDIT: Today (18th of June) at the LUG meeting in Mitterteich will be a short talk about OSM including some practices.
