Today I compared GMM (Google Moble Maps) and VEM (Virtual Earth Mobile).
I installed both things only using a mobile device (MDA Compact with WM2003).
This link only works on the mobile device! GMM is a Java application so you need the MIDlet Manager on your device (which is the case for WM2003 devices – PPC + SMP).
I searched using MSN Mobile spaces (Windows Live Search) and found that link which not worked. But putting the link in the address bar it worked.
GMM vs. VEM
- GMM performs faster
- VEM has more features
- VEM sometime chrases with a "NullReferenceException"
- GMM sometime hangs
- GMM + VEM: Searching / Directions do not work for Austria
- GMM + VEM: Both to not support satellite fotos (GMM supports satellite photos but only at few view levels)
- GMM provides better maps (personal view, just look at the images)
Of course it’s just a personal view but it may helps you to decide which application to prefer. At the moment I’d like to give VEM 5/10 points and GMM 7/10 points.
