    Welcome to Android Central
    Unfortunately, if your device has no internet connection it will not be able to use any maps/navigation apps.

    Tom Tom claims it will work offline, but it costs $43.46. I'd like to know if anybody can confirm it or any of the others that claim to work offline really do.

    Not sure if it will help as a free sort of workaround but have you read Jerry Hildenbrand's recent article about this? How to save a map for use offline in Google Maps | Android Central

    Note in particular his observation "If you start navigation while you are connected, and both your location and your destination are saved in an offline map, you can get started then turn off data and still get directions."

    I'm thinking this may be of no use to you but hey it could be worth exploring.

    EDIT: Also read the comments below Jerry's article; could be something in there that helps, after you sort through all the negativity chaff!
