Serbiamap Mobile - Serbiamap.Mobile Java application is designed for map browsing and performing fast and efficient online search against our database of georeferenced locations and Points of Interest in Serbia.
Uses it's own map (www.serbiamap.net)
Taking advantage of GPS receiver on your device, if available. At this moment, only integrated GPS receivers are supported.
Online search of our POI database (through Internet connection). Search can be performed on several criteria, by name, by object type and by proximity, as well. The latter one allows user to filter search results by proximity from current GSP location and sort them accordingly. This way you can perform searches like 'the nearest petrol station' or 'list of hotels in city I'm located'.
For each object in search results, map view can be invoked using option Show Map.
Objects (POIs) usually contain short description (address, contact phone, short info - depending on object type). You can checkout those detail using Info option.
If no GPS receiver is present on your device, or you simply want to checkout the content in area other then your present, you can use the concept of simulated location - ie. one can set the reference point that will act as your virtual GPS location in distance-based search requests. One can set reference point using option Simulate Position in following fashion - either by declaring one of the search results as reference point, or while browsing the map view. In the latter case, reference point is set in the center of display, where red crosshair point. Using the concept of simulated location, one can easily browse our geo content, without particular need for GPS receiver.
Program is operating in either real GPS mode (actual position) or in simulated position mode. You can not use them simultaniously. In order to set simulated position, one should stop satellite tracking (if active).
