This Wikibook intends to provide an exhaustive guide to Map This!, is an open source homebrew satellite navigation application for the Sony PlayStation Portable. In combination with a GPS receiver it allows you to see where you are on a map. Map This! can also function as a simple map viewer without a GPS receiver.
It is currently (13:09, 23 January 2008 (UTC)) based on Map This! version 0.5.20. The official site of Map This! is http://deniska.dcemu.co.uk/.

- Deniska's News Forum: http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=105
Besides Deniska, other people have worked on Map This! as well. Some of the functionality other people have written has made it into the official version (notably MIB.42's changes), while other functionality was released in unofficial versions.
One of the first unofficial versions, by atari800, added sound features to Map This!. This version has now been taken offline.
Another unofficial version, by Nieko, added a.o. auto map switching, auto zooming, and GPS recording to POI. This version can be found on .
