are you sure it's malsingmaps? it looks different. in fact... some part google has somepart malsingmap has... and the completeness of the road names much better than malsingmaps. Though it has some outskirts missing compared to malsingmaps.

it looks good on the PC.
i suspect this will be a turning point for Malaysians to use google maps and they will come to malsingmaps in due course. expect many newbies!

however on the mobile phone at detail level the street names disappear.
i m using nokia e61 and ver 1.70.2 google maps for mobile.

only problem is ... you can't really use it on the phone ... cuz if you're in some area without GPRS at least... you're lost :P ... but i think this maps are one sure way of selling the new Google Android phone :D

sorry... check which part? don't really get your pic. They already declare the Maps are from Map Code, MapIT and Europa Technologies.

I doubt they are using the older version of the MSM. Cuz I lately added a new Area in Malsingmaps... it's already in Google.
