After the initial excitement over the Photo Mapping, PDA Essentials decided that the G800R wasn't that much of an all-round performer. Features were fairly limited and for all its wow factor, the magazine had to admit that the photo-realistic maps could be a it distracting while driving. A good proof-of-concept, but for now at least, road users may be better off sticking to more tried and tested PNDs.
You'll no doubt be able to get this as a hacked software and put on a SD-card enabled GPS soon.

I know that ain't in the true spirit of the forum of paying for things albeit cheap. But this software is the future for me!
The shape is to clone TomTom which I cannot see as being good.

I would guess you could create this feature fairly easily using online aerial photos to create maps.

Years ago we wanted a map of the entire UK and wrote code to download the entire thing from Streetmap, only directly referencing the maps to download but generating requests automatically to receive the entire UK.

Their server unfortunately was not quite up to this - and it effectively brought the server down acting as a DOS attack.

We then rewrote the code with a little delay between requests - and got the entire map over the week running it only at nights.

The same could be done to get the aerial map - although i noticed the scale varies with the population generally, and i don't see Google or Live maps being capable of being brought down accidentally from a standard broadband line rather than a distributed attack.
