    Hi All

    Now I know there is Google Map app and what not, but Im wondering is their an amp that is actually exactly like a Tom Tom GPS? Where the maps are stored on the phone and all it does is navigate provide directions using the GPS part of the phone?

    I ask cause mobile broadband costs a fortune here in NZ so I would rather download the maps at home on my wifi and then be able to use them anywhere out and about without making my phone connect to the internet?

    Is this possible?

    Thanks

    I use Aura Sygic Navigation and that does exactly what you're after and has NZ maps.

    Sygic had a Mobile Maps version 10 that was a purer copy of TomTom GPS software.
    They they created the Aura, which was a bit different and was meant for high-end devices.
    Now they don't call it Aura anymore: it is simply Sygic GPS Navigation (v11).

    Can anyone recommend an app for the galaxy s2 that provides offline navigation using garmin GPS based maps? I have a pile of unlocked maps that work in a garmin GPS and I 'd to continue using them in the S2 without a data connection.
