    Google maps can cache the terrain when it needs to. So, it doesn't need a data connection to download the map data if it's already downloaded.

    However, the GPS on the phone is A-GPS and requires an active data connection to find the satellites. So no, I don't think it will work.

    There are 3rd party programs that store maps on your SD card, so that you do not need a connection. Telenav is one of them.
    This might be what you're looking for.

    You will have very little success with that. All of the maps you will want will need to be pre-downloaded or cached on the device. that in its self is very tricky as it doesnt always download all the detail needed to save space and bandwidth.
    The A-GPS like an earlier poster mentioned might need a data connection to accurately look for certain info.
    There are 3rd party apps that are trying to solve these problems.

    Thanks for the suggestions. It sounds like using the epic will be more trouble than expected. I think I just buy the european map database for the Garmin Nuvi I have.
