    Hi Android Users,

    I am a newbie to Android operating systems, I own a Samsung Galaxy-S (i9000) and am from India. Its widely known as Samsung Vibrand, abroad.

    Is there any offline maps for "India" available for this mobile?

    Spec: Android 2.1, Samsung, Galaxy-S

    The mobile has GPS device inbuilt in it.

    Best Regards,
    Senthur

    You'll need more than just maps. You'll want a suitable GPS nav app.

    You can go for mapMyIndia sygic maps. it costs around 2400 r.s but its quite worth a buy. you can visit the site www.mapmyindia.com. You also can search for a application called 'NDrive' which is also a navigation app.

    Try MapDroyd. It will download the maps you select.

    I have Samsung Galaxy s i9000, with Froyo. On my recent visit to Rajasthan, i could get GPS fix (with much difficulty) but could not see my exact location, as the map was not getting loaded. i did not have access to GPRS nor Wi-fi connection. Is it because of non-access to GPRS or wi-fi connection, the maps did not get loaded and I could not see my exact location?

    Free MapDroyd for maps. Not for navigation.

    Google maps uses Internet to download and navigate so it will cost data connection

    I use Mapdroyd and navigation is really precise for me.

    Mapdroyd all the way.

    You download the maps you need and you can GPS your way ;)

    Only for programming/planning/setting up your route. Once you've done that you can switch off all connections (e.g. Airplane Mode) except the GPS locator app and drive/walk/bike to your destination using Google Maps. No extra download of maps required. So no connection to networks required.
