Developer Richard Brundritt has created a new Flight Simulator plugin for Microsoft Virtual Earth (our Virtual Earth API profile) that uses the VE3D map control to provide a very cool user experience.
With navigation units already seen on dashboards worldwide, TomTom hopes to expand its influence to mobile apps and web browsers. The company launched the TomTom Maps Toolkit API and other services it hopes will encourage innovation along the spectrum of independent developers to enterprise customers. Some of its new platform will compete directly with Google and Microsoft, among many other mapping APIs.
