Or could be, at least, if you're traveling in Paris, thanks to one enterprising homebrew artiste. Christophe Andreani's "simple application" puts all of Paris at the tip of your stylus -- in map form, at least. He's worked up a neat little program that brings an entire map of the city to the DS, with zoom and stylus functionality to help you find your way around. Metro-Paris v1.0 is all there is for now, but perhaps Monsieur Andreani can be convinced to cook up a few other maps ... or other programmers will follow his lead. If nothing else, a DS Lite is certainly more stylish than that old, beat-up Rand McNally that lives in the floorboard of your car.
