I know my 6000 has J2ME on it. And "MGMaps runs on devices that support CLDC 1.0 and MIDP 1.0 or later." So how do I get it to run the Google Maps program Mobile GMaps?

There are .jar and .jad files here: http://wap.mgmaps.com/

What the heck do I do with these files?

I knew this topic looked familiar... https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=18860

If you are not prompted in the beginning to agree to terms and conditions, then there's something wrong. If you do, make sure you're using the latest version of Google Mobile Maps. Also, if you are trying this over a cellphone connection, most providers block direct internet connections. Google Maps requires one.

This wouldn't be a problem if there were some way to set properties (i.e., the Google Maps URL property) on the Zaurus. They are stored in the JAD file. By configuring a reverse proxy server, this would enable all of us with internet plans like T-Zones to use Google Maps on our Zauruses.
