True.. better then nothing though I'd have to use those on my not so hi-tech phone (assuming I had a data plan) so I guess they serve a purpose.

Not sure how this will work on Blackberry or Windows Mobile, maybe someone here can test.
That looks like a pretty standard Google Maps link. Maybe they redirect on their end based on browser detection?

Here's some info on getting KML files to open on the Maps app on the iPhone:

Tim would need to add some code, not sure how much work it would all be. Just passing along the info.

Yeah I think the iPhone web browser auto-detects.

Might be a nice project for us members, creating mobile-friendly map .jpg images for courses…
genius, this would be greatness....

I tried that link on my windows mobile (v6.2) and it took me to a browser-based/static map rather than the mobile app. That makes sense since windows mobile behaves very similarly to windows.

iPhone max pixel dimensions are 480×320. Anyone using a Blackberry or Windows Mobile etc. phone, let us know what size screens you have. Maybe we can find a sweet spot for everyone, and post some guidelines for anyone wanting to create these scorecard JPGs.

I'll even work up a template map in Adobe Illustrator (vector art) format and link for download. I'll create some basic basket icons and a color scheme, and anyone wanting to tweak for their courses can use the file. Basically just need to create something that reads well at the target size.

I can export the .ai file to other formats for use with open-source vector editors as well (SVG or whatever you guys need).

Great idea! Sucks when you are in a new area and have to find a public library to get access to where some local courses are. Much easier now!

Check this quickie map on your mobile browser. Looks great on iPhone, and sized to fit the Photos app perfectly: http://bit.ly/67YRI - obviously view in landscape mode

I bumped up the sizes to make it as readable as possible without zooming. Let me know how it looks and if all makes sense at first glance.

Curious how it looks on other phones.

I have an AT&T Tilt (HTC tytnII) - screen resolution 240X320. Windows Mobile.

This picture only fits zooming to 50%. Readable and functional at that size.

I made similar maps for the Charlotte courses: http://www.charlottedgc.com/images/sugaw/sugaw_18.jpg (800x617)

How do those work? (it works fine at 50% zoom for me) I always like to put the hole lengths on the maps since signage is often lacking on the course.
