    It's great having GPS, but it is also frustrating to not to be able
    to use it without an internet connection.

    I'm looking for an application that can be used offline, or that
    can cache Google Maps, or something. Suggestions?

    Yes CoPilot is an option for you. Terrible lag when you're trying to set destinations and scrolling on the map. But the menu buttons and icons are extremely finger friendly. Also sports a non-intuitive menu (imo).

    try Ndrive,pretty good and not too slow either.just you need to buy maps
    you can read yourself, im using from day to day and im pretty happy
    NDrive | NDrive for Phones - Android

    or sygic mobile maps for android also not too bad just a bit slow.
    so both are offline but they cost money.you can try any of these or wait for tomtom to come out for android which according to some forums should be soon.

    Andnav2 is pretty basic but uses no data if you send the maps from pc to phone before use.

    If you just need the MAPS, my chose is Rmaps. it's free and maps data can create with gmaps and other source. it is quicker than gmaps.:D

    Is there a way - like on the iPhone - to download Google maps and use them offline ?

    I just installed sygic Mobile Maps. So far, so good...it's not in the Android Market, and it was a pain to install. Basically, have an internet connection and do a manual install to the internal memory (not the SD card).

    I don't know if it's the software or gps hardware, but sygic has ZERO issues getting a signal...even in unlikely places (indoors).
