    Hello,

    Is it true that there is no way to build map mashups using the iPhone SDK? If so, does anyone know of a workaround?

    Any insight is greatly appreciated!

    That was going to be my second option - just launching the browser. Though, because the iPhone only allows one application open at a time, and if the user wants to return to the original app then s/he'd have to close the browser and re-start the app.

    If I take this approach, do you know if it's possible for the browser to grab coordinates directly from the phone (using CoreLocation)?

    You can open up a WebView inside your application instead of having to launch Safari. Check out the Sample Code's UIShowcase's WebView example.
