    I would like to use My Desire with offline maps and GPs like a satnav eg TomTom. As I understand it Google maps requires the data connection up to load relevant map. This can be expensive when roaming in europe. So is it possible to obtain maps for memory and use the GPS to show location just like a TomTom.

    As I understand it you can download your route before you leave the house and it will be fine. However if you deviate from that route it won't be able to plot a new route without the data connection enabled.
