Simple OSM is a reliable OpenStreetMap (OSM) client for Microsoft Windows Phone 7
to browse in maps from the
project. In the beginning, there were just a small number of features, but until
now lots of things have been added: several other layers (e.g. Bing Maps, Google Maps)
can be chosen, an advanced search and basic routing functionality is included, saving of
favorite locations as well as recording, sending and downloading of tracks is possible.
Furthermore, you can search and download tracks directly from
GPSies.com, where you will find
dozens of categorized tracks.

Searching for an address or business leads to better results compared
to many other apps, since you can define where to search and what to search.
Note that you do not have to type search locations for this purpose, instead
you can quickly choose your current GPS location or map center.
It is possible to call the phone number or visit the website of
a search result directly out of the application. Since results of the 5 latest
search queries are stored locally, no internet connection is required to check
up those details.
If your device contains a compass, this sensor will be used to calculate
orientation while not moving. This allows a small arrow on the map to point into
the direction you are looking - even if you are inside a building.
Routes to search results or any custom location can be calculated easily.
You can choose whether driving or walking mode should be used.
Favorite locations or search results can be saved as custom pushpins to
remember certain places. Custom pushpins can be managed independently, for
example to show a certain subset only.
Tracks can be recorded and sent to any email address in the gpx format.
Furthermore, any track in the gpx format can be transferred to the device
using this web service. Track recording continues when the screen of the
device is locked and is automatically resumed if the application was closed
or forced to suspend (e.g. due to a phone call).
The trial version includes all features, but you always have to wait 30 seconds
after application startup before usage is possible.
