you dont have to use the api, google maps is using the ajax (asynchrous javascript + xml) technique, which has been
disected, it works with urls which are being called and loaded in the background, using javascript.

the problem is that the map consist out of 32 images, which you should "glue" together, unless you want to end up with blurry images.

Lightbulb  Google Earth or Google Maps client (browser/viewer)
Post: #5
I think that an integrated google map client to browse the map or to find something without starting the PC is a good idea.

Is there something already developed?

If someone needs a hand or could help me on how to start to develop this plugin I'm here.
I'm a good Linux C programmer but I haven't any experience in Xbox DEv.

Excuse me for the english.

(another idea is a skype or voip client to use with the xbox live earphones).

Bye.

Francesco.

This should be IMO a plugin to xbmc, but it would be nice to have such a browser/viewer.
Dunno if this could be made with Python? Just look at the Python-forum Wink

there are only 10 sorts of people: those who understand binary and those who don't

PC: Kubuntu 14.04 and Win7 --- Raspberry Pi: OpenELEC --- VU+ Duo: VTi 7.0.x --- NAS: OMV 1.0.x with XBMC-Server

Yes this would be better as a python script than as a native function in C/C++

this does not need js to run and a browser.
it acts as a standalone apps and I think that is better.

maybe it is possible to embedd the java engine directly in the executable.

I have posted a message on his forum.
