To guide the driver, a background map for the Remote Control helps a lot.
This can be map-tiles from OpenStreetMap or map-tiles made from aerial images. Or a specialized custom map. All map-tiles that adhere to the very common “slippy map-tiles” standard will work with the Remote Control. And can be re-used with the Creator processing program, the web player and the Android Offline player.
