    Is there a GPS app that comes with all the maps?

    I ask because I recently tried to navigate with google maps but since I was in an area with no 3G I had to use the hotel's wifi to map it before I left. I saw a friend's Garmin app on another phone but can't find it in the android market.

    Thanks.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I believe Gaia GPS also works offline, by downloading maps ahead of time

    I thought a recent update for Google Maps added the ability to preload map data for future offline use.

    Yes, if you go into the menu->more->labs you can select "Pre-cache map area".

    Oh, that functionality is insufficient for your needs. Didn't read carefully enough.
