This redesign looks like it uses some java that Pocket IE cannot render on my Apache.
I was using their previous website fine, and it was just GREAT!, No maps needed in my car.
Now I am forced to purchase a third party browser, better trial it first to see if it works with Netfront or Opera Mobile, anyone had any experience with these and Wises new site?

My opinions and ideas expressed in posts are solely my own and do not reflect the views of my employer in any way..

You are right... Just tested Wises and it won't show the map on a Pocket PC, only the "LOADING" image. Zoomin is not better either. Google Maps show a map, but address lookup doesn't exist for New Zealand...

They all work on the desktop though, but I think Zoomin is (currently) the best one for New Zealand...

Yes, paradoxsm is right... None of these works on a PDA. Shame, wises was good as a PDA-friendly (not really, but it worked) map site. I used it a few times while out and about...
