    Hi all,

    I'm about to try to develop a map app that displays my position on a map. The problem that I have is that the devices won't be online and the GPS-position data is delivered through an ordinary IP-stream over WiFi.

    I also have specialized maps that I wan't to display sometimes. I am confident in programming but completly new to the Android platform, so I could use some nice pointers or references on following questions.

    So my questions really are ..

    * Is it possible to use other map sources than Google Maps API? Any pointers if so?
    * Is it possible to extract the GPS-information received through ordinary network communication and feed it to the Location API?
    * I've seen some information about Google Maps offline!? Is it possible?

    Thanks in advance ...
