The DS is your co-pilot

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.
