Broken out from bug 32136.
The current "near me" map implementation uses a native Google Maps view. This has three major problems:
- have to fiddle with code signing keys to get the map to work
- doesn't work at all on Android devices without the Google proprietary APIs (such as Kindle Fire tablet)
- will have to be recoded when porting the app to other operating systems
Replacing this with an OpenStreetMap-based, HTML-based view would let us port it more easily, have no limitations, and generally make us feel warm and fuzzy.
