    The Mobile Atlas Creator has halted development due to map provider complains.

    About the sdcard/android/data/cache folder I guess it uses some kind of format that nobody understands at this time, or anyway there are no specific cache creators, so the only way I see is that you "browse" the places where you want to go and the save that cache for future use...

    Even so, the cache folder is not only for maps (if is), it is also for any data, so if you install applications or do any other stuff it will get overridden.
