Very cool, thanks. Looks like 200% scale to the iPhone dimensions works well for at least 2 phones. Going to work on some local maps when I get some time. Actually not too difficult to work up if I have an existing map to base it on (arial map w/baskets & tees marked) so if anyone has a list of some of the bigger or more popular courses that could benefit most from these, let me know.

Also, it does have the Lat/Long on there but I think that is it easier to use (at least for my GPS) for them to be in decimal form.

39.858950, -105.018800(Decimal) vs. 39 51' 32" N, 105 1' 7" W(Degree)

My car only lets me put in lat/lon in DMS format and I think most GPS units that allow decimal will let you put it in using DMS (I know Garmins do) which is why I went with that format.

I thought about adding both but didn't want to clutter things up too much. Also, nearby/onsite courses are in.

It looks great on Windows Mobile 6. I think the map zoom level is perfect. Such a great idea Tim.

Same here.

I think I will get some use out of this when I travel. Get me to a course.

Tim,

Chalk up another preference for decimal GPS coords. But you're the king so if you can only use DMS I can live with it.

Also, the default search on the mobile page includes extinct courses. I'm thinking it's better for them to be excluded in mobile searches, especially since the mobile page for them has no indication that they are extinct.
