What exactly is the reason for them using TS for this?  Could they not minimize the TS window and load Google Maps that way?

How is your TS configured, and for what reason are they using Google Maps?

Hi,

We have around 1000 users connecting into a terminal server enviroment over thin clients using windows CE so they cannot minimize to use IE.

TS is 2003 with 4g of ram and around 18 users per box.

I am sticking to the "query".  The reason I am asking is because perhaps there is an alternative.  Ultimately, there is no way to remove something from google map's API.  There is a google maps for mobile phones.
