=== Nokia N900 offline hitchwiki navigator ===
As the [http://wiki.maemo.org/Nokia_N900 Nokia N900]
internet tablet reaches dumbphone price levels, it can also make for an offline Hitchwiki spot browser within Openstreetmap. The only difference with the website is that Hw's spot ratings and descriptions are missing for now.

Marble adds kml files incremently, so more than one country could be loaded. To disable the kml layer, restart marble.
If Marble gives a parsing error when opening the kml file,
it should still open in Google Earth. Open and click the file in the Places window once > Save as a kml file with a relevant file name. Copy the file to the N900 and try to open in Marble again. This worked for me, only accents are messed up.
The dots on Hitchwiki are replaced by the letter ''''a'''' in ''''a Hitchhiking spot in [place, country]' and are placed on the same spot as the dots'''.
- Max. 1400 Mah battery available. Spare batteries are recommended for longer trips<br>
- Slower lookup compared to paper due to its 3,5" screen<br>
- Ratings and specifics of Hitchwiki spots are not included. This can be solved by converting the daily xml dump files to .aar, as explained here and open them in Aard dictionary. I'm still looking at this.
