3rd party Google Maps

A lot sooner than I thought it'd happen, we have the first 3rd part application which integrates the new Google Maps service. Glen Murphy has written Movin Gmap, which is a GPS driver for the service. The driver continually updates your position from a connected GPS reciever and recenters your map, presumably using straight REST calls to the service. Pretty simple proof of concept, and Windows only, but you have to give the guy credit for getting there first.
