Download the tile images for testing

from urllib import urlretrieve
turl =  'http://mt.google.com/mt?v=w2.4&x=%s&y=%s&zoom=%s'
tfile = '%s-%s-%s.gif'
z = 12
for x in range(5,10):
  for y in range(10,14):
    urlretrieve(turl % (x,y,z), tfile % (z,y,x))

Then put the images in the phone. Then use the following code
to browse around the images (and zoom in/out)

from appuifw import *
from key_codes import *
from graphics import Image
import e32

app.screen = 'full'
app.body = c= Canvas()

x, y, z = 10*256, 24*256, 11
dirname = u'C:\\system\\data\\gmap\\'  # where I save the tile images

def draw():
    gx, ox = divmod(x, 256)
    gy, oy = divmod(y, 256)
    f = dirname + '%s-%s-%s.gif' % (z,gy,gx)
    c.blit(Image.open(f), target=(-ox,-oy))

    if ox > 80:
        f = dirname + '%s-%s-%s.gif' % (z,gy,gx+1)
        c.blit(Image.open(f), target=(256-ox,-oy))
    if oy > 48:
        f = dirname + '%s-%s-%s.gif' % (z,gy+1,gx)
        c.blit(Image.open(f), target=(-ox,256-oy))
    if ox > 80 and oy > 48:
        f = dirname + '%s-%s-%s.gif' % (z,gy+1,gx+1)
        c.blit(Image.open(f), target=(256-ox,256-oy))

def move(dx,dy):
    global x, y
    x += dx * 50
    y += dy * 50
    draw()

def zoomin():
    global x,y,z
    x = x*2 + 88
    y = y*2 + 104
    z = z-1
    draw()

def zoomout():
    global x,y,z
    x = x/2 - 44
    y = y/2 - 52
    z = z+1
    draw()

c.bind(EKeyRightArrow,lambda:move(1, 0))
c.bind(EKeyLeftArrow,lambda:move(-1, 0))
c.bind(EKeyUpArrow,lambda:move(0, -1))
c.bind(EKeyDownArrow,lambda:move(0, 1))
c.bind(EKeySelect, zoomin)
c.bind(EKeyStar, zoomout)

running = 1
def quit():
    global running
    running = 0
app.exit_key_handler= quit

draw()
while running:
    e32.ao_sleep(0.1)
