Default offline app for geocaching?

does anybody know an app for android that can loads offline maps (or atleast cached maps) and can locate points on the map when user inputs longitude and latitude.
that would be a great tool for geocaching
right now, i have the geocaching app made by Groundspeak and i can only use the locate by map function if im on a internet connection :\

I found an app called c:geo. It does cache for offline use, but I'm not positive if it will do what you're looking for. It's free so you aren't losing anything if it doesn't do what you want.

You might also try BackCountry Navigator. It works really well for me. It's $10, but there is a timed trial version so you can check it out for free for something like 14 days.

i just installed rmaps on my phone, it a pretty cool program, u can download google maps tiles via mobile atlas creator and store it on your microSD and rmaps would read it and use it to navigate. plus c:geo supports rmaps as a navigation tool!
only downside is the size of the google map tiles.
i download a portion of the map from level 5-17 zoom (19 being max) that covered the entire city of Toronto and Markham and its about 600MB
