The regular findU pages work great with an iPhone. I was never happy  
with the options provided with WAP, it seemed like a dead-end so I  
stopped development on that, waiting for something like the iPhone to  
come alone. Until those innovations trickle down to the rest of you,  
there is wapaprs:

Decent for the US where the APRSworld maps are available, not so  
great for the rest of the world where electronic mapping data is sold  
for a high price by the government.

That turns out to be hard to do, you cannot grab single tiles from  
Google, you can only use their code, which requires javascript,  
something lacking in most cell phones.
