    Hello Everyone,

    I am trying to write an app using Google Maps on Android Device. I learned how to use MapView, MapActivity and MapController along with LocationManager and LocationProvider.

    What is most challenging for me is to develop this app for use in off line mode, So when User starts app he can see whatever cached map tiles form Google Map. I have many questions

    1. MapView requires INTERNET permission. Does that mean i **MUST** have
    INTERNET alive when users is using the app?
    2. The device on which app will run is an unlocked phone without any service.
    Phone comes with GPS and I am able to use the GPS with satellite and it updates the location for me. However I am not able to combine google maps and GPS with out Internet and Service. Do I need to do something different?

    Please help,

    Thanks
