True. Until Android platform will support official way for an Android
app to hook up into routing tables it will probably stay this way.

Is there then some way of sending this data to a central server from
all nodes already implemented? Or for any interested in this data
party (like some announce that you are interested in this and every
node sends you data) so that you do not need to hard-code a central
server information but it can be anyone on the whole mesh?

Are paths (routes) in topology graph still optimal or are they
suboptimal because of this? So do you find a real shortest path?
