    There now a GpsMid .apk for Android devices available at http://gpsmid.sourceforge.net/nightlies/ - it contains an example bundled map for Helsinki area, but you any recent prebuilt jar (at http://gpsmid.sourceforge.net/prebuild/ ) should work as a zip map, and of course you can also build a map zip with Osm2GpsMid.

    The resolution with this app is low even on high-res devices - I'm not sure if/how a switching-resolution apk can be built. I've built a higher-resolution version for myself, perhaps I'll upload that too sometime.

    I added the following note to Platforms:

    NB - as there's no bundling support for Android yet (and it's uncertain if it will be added), you'll have to use an external map. Install a map (e.g. from http://apmon.dev.openstreetmap.org/GpsMid/index.shtml ), typically on the SD card, then tell GpsMid where to find the map.

    It'd be good to test if the bundling scripts still work with the latest Android build tools, and bundle a small map within the apk if they do - would make it easier for first-time users to try something out, even when the map is not for their area.
