Question about using gps in italy
Ok guys, I am going to Italy next week and renting a car. I know I cant use my phone, but from what I understand I can use the GPS anywhere as long as I have a PRELOADED map app. I was considering Mapdroyd. I just wondered if anyone knows if that app will do what I need and if you know of any better. Thanks in advance

That's the pain with CDMA, the US is really the only country that uses it. The phone also uses AGPS, so it still needs a cell signal to help acquire the sats. It may not work as a standalone GPS, even with the maps preloaded.</awesome>

Have you looked at CoPilot Live for Europe?
CoPilot Live - Europe - Android app on AppBrain
It's $80 but that's a lot less than I paid for my Garmin nuvi and Europe maps.
While the EVO does have assisted GPS (a-GPS), I think it also has full GPS capability - at least I could get GPS while in airplane mode.
