    Does anyone know of any Android map apps for offline use with GPS support that can view Garmin Custom Map kmz files?

    The maps I want to use are the NZ Topo Map ones described here:

    Custom Maps is an app I already regularly use which uses the kmz format itself but it doesn't seem to recognise these files. I guess it might be because all the smaller jpg images in the kmz file when stitched together will exceed the 3 megapixel limit (was hoping it would work as each jpg on its own is smaller than 3 megapixels).

    I know there's some map apps out there that will allow you to consume offline maps created using MOBAC etc. but ideally I'm after one that doesn't require me to play around with file formats.

    Cheers,
    Gavin
