Offline Google Maps for Android?
Hey everyone, I'm a new Android user who migrated from Windows Mobile.
Are there any apps out there that can serve as an OFFLINE google maps (absolutely no data connection required)? For those familiar with Windows Mobile, there is a freeware called NaviComputer and you can download/cache google maps and view them offline. Anything similar for Android?
I came across offline map software like MapDroyd, but those aren't google maps but from some other place. What I want is google maps and all their landmarks and stuff...

Google maps caches where you are and where you've been up to 32mb. Not sure how far you want to go or what not with no data.
I was in the subway Saturday and could still veiw all of NYC qmd long island including layers I loaded up such as subway lines.
You would just have to read them *** a map though. It won't load the directions for you.

Locus i believe has this capability. It allows you to define a "map area" to download and use it while you have no data connection. I use this when i go hiking, so i have the map for the city i'm in downloaded and using GPS to route my hike. I use OCM maps with Locus but i believe it also has Google Maps capability.
It even allows you to define the zoom level you want downloaded.
