Custom iPhone Support (web mapping)

I've created a custom web page at http://www.openaprs.net/iphone/ that should work better for the iPhone's web browser (Safari). The new page is automatically loaded for iPhones when they access http://www.openaprs.net/ but it can also be accessed drectly via the former link. This new page supports zoom in and zoom out buttons in place of the normal Google Maps zoom bar which doesn't work on iPhone. You can also use the search input box to lookup callsigns, zip codes and city/state pairs.

I'm actively developing a new app for the iPhone that will include a compass, speedometer, lat/long distance calculation, coordinate conversions, APRS position reporting and APRS messaging using OpenAPRS's DCC Interface. I'll announce the sotware once it's listed through Apple's iPhone App store last November. In the mean time I'll try and get some screenshots up.
