    No Problem :D

    Thats the only one I know of but if anyone knows from the AF community I'm sure they will share :)

    Their is one sort of SatNav which has similar for what your looking for ...... "AndNav 2" {Free} It doesn't have all the Maps Pre-loaded but what you can do is download some and use them Off-line. So basically you have to do the Individual areas one by one {only the ones that you need really} & the zoom level you want it! :rolleyes: which can be a bit of a pain in the Back side and very time consuming! :eek:. Luckily Co-Pilot has all the area's pre-loaded so that's what I would recommend.

    If you're just looking for an offline map app with GPS, then I'd suggest RMap. With TrekBuddy Atlas Creator, you can generate any map files from Google and put them into the SD card and you're good to go with RMap.

    Slovakia
    MapDroyd is also good. You can selectively download map of any country you want, as it uses another app (ContentDroyd) for that. No idea about general quality of maps, but map of Slovakia, where I live, is quite good - at least for towns and cities.

    Definitely not as good as Google Maps, though. :/
