Mobile maps

New Google Maps mashup – Mobile Maps. The idea is very simple – select the area on the full screen map and send link to this map to any mobile user. And even more – the link here is a static picture. So any mobile user (regardless of the mobile terminal capabilities) will be able to see this map. How does it work:

1. Scale or move the full screen map here:
2. The marker always points to the center of your map
3. Hit envelope icon and type email address there. You can use email-sms gate from your mobile operator and send link to the map via SMS.
4. Send map (as a static picture)

Technically this mashup uses Google static maps.
