Question Online maps for kindle?

I have Kindle 3 wifi+3G and tried to use maps.google.com but my kindle froze a few times while zooming in. What site do you use for maps?

As I only bought K3 just over a week ago, I've been avidly reading the very useful posts on mobileread, & spotted this:

http://kinstant.com/maps/

which works very well on my Kindle

HTH.

Cool. Do you know if you can do this while travelling overseas (from a K3 with 3G)?

Well, you don't actually point out where you are

I'll take a wild guess & assume USA, in which case I am several thousands of kilometres away overseas & it works ok here

This may help?

If you're travelling to Europe you should be fine, but maybe check your T & C's with Amazon?

The US map is accessible via that URL too.
