    Hello,

    Please let me ask you - is there an application for android that would allow me to just enter GPS coordinates and then it would navigate me (just showing the compass like direction would be fine, maybe distance as well)? But all this with NO data connection (WiFi, 3G, ...). Let's say I am in the middle of "nowhere" - no WiFi connection, I do not have data plan with my provider but I know where I want to get - I have coordinates.

    Thank you for your time.

    I wouldn't have thought so.

    How would it know how far you had travelled? Or if you had changed direction?

    Have you looked at Co-Pilot?

    Check out c:geo ~ go geocaching in the market.

    It gives distance and direction to a geocache, and allows manual entry of latitude and longitudein order to search for caches near those coordinates. It wouldn't take too much modification to allow it to simply guide you to the coordinates...

    I think it would be a nice feature. Check it out, and if it seems reasonable, ask the author to implement a new feature.

    On second thought. look at the compass function of that application. I think it does what you want...
