I love using Google Maps as theres nothing quite like it, so heres a way to download a part or area of a map to your phone so that when you have no wifi or data connection you can still use the map functionality. You can go offline and still use the region that you have downloaded as a map.

Video footage showing solutions that are working for me and many other Galaxy S users, for improving the Galaxy S GPS navigation experience, in this case, turn-by-turn voice guided car navigation. Tested only with offline navigation programs like iGo,Sygic, Navigon, CoPilot ,etc. Tomtom and Garmin AFAIK, are not available for Android yet. Not tested with online nav apps. like Google maps ( wich is not available or not working properly in many countries). Sorry for my English on video; tough to drive, navigate, deal with video, and concentrate on the english all at the same time. This “solution” is consisted off: -A external bluetooth gps receiver ( with a sirfstarIII gps or equivalent) -Applications: Bluetooth Gps Mouse (tested by me) or Gps Provider (Tested by others) -The right settings (in Android OS) - see video Part 2 will show the SGS running navigation software using solely the INTERNAL GPS receiver… |I suggest you guys post all your questions here: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=775450&highlight=gps&page=15 (copy this link and paste) It is a forum and more suitable for this kind of discussions I’ll be glad to answer all your qustions over there
Walk our quick video walkthrough of the new feature that allows you to use maps offline in Google Maps for Android. The concept is great, and the free price tag makes it impossible to complain, but there are still a few things that should be polished before we consider them perfect.
