    Open Source mapping providers like Open Street Maps already have apps on iPhone and Android and allow full download and reuse of their maps. I think this Google reaction is a huge step, but still very indicative of the threat they face from open mapping. Other products like OpenGeo and Mapbox/Tilemill have enabled easy creation of custom maps.

    The root of the problem is that — last I knew anyway — Google doesn’t own their map tiles. That may have changed when they did their own turn by turn directions.
