    There's none I'm afraid. Rumor has it that it will be included in the 3.0 version but who knows. So far I've been using the HTC Premium thing and it works brilliant BUT it rarely ever find the exact postcode you want. Some say that the CoPilot 8 is very good in terms of search and routing and it's

    HTC Locations app has freely available maps, which can be downloaded through the app settings.
    It includes free turn-by-turn "premium" for 30-days, after which you can either buy a monthly, yearly or lifetime licence.
    If you don't want to pay, you can still use it for route planning but without the turn-by-turn option!

    MapDroyd has offline map, but no turn by turn.

    i have been using sygic on my N900 and have been quite happy with it, so just installed it on the DHD too. i was impressed by the N900's gps which used to get a lock in around 30 secs without agps but DHD was even better with a lock in less than 20 secs on a couple of occasions when i tested it. i was trying to uninstall locations but havent found a way to do so, anyone has any ideas?
