Hi  Mikael 

Glad that you add the " it seems like" .........
There is no "Terms of use" violation since what you see is not a desktop
application but a WEB application.
What you see is Internet explorer window, the corresponding pages are
www.elcom.gr/googlemaps/agwmap.htm for google maps
As for virtual earth since it does not require to have a web site the HTML
page is embedded inside the program.
Details will be published with the official release.

Just be more carefully when you blame someone...
The previous day they were discussing here my death........
Please find a better and more politely way to support your ideas.

battery for portable operation)

One of the biggest problems is that if you want to use a map engine in your
software, they usually want a truckload of money for a developers license or
they have runtime license, making it very costly to integrate into UI-View.

In some cases the API only allows you to control their application only,
making it impossible to integrate into UI-View. (Ozi Explorer for instance)

In the case with "Virtual Earth" and "Google Maps" it seems like AGWTracker
is violating the "Terms of use"
of these services, making it legally impossible to integrate into UI-View.
