    Hi

    This is my first post, apologies if this was covered in another thread.
    I'm going to Tokyo in a couple of weeks and would love to be able to use the GPS function with maps. I under stand that google maps requires a data connection to pull the images for the map as you go. Is there a program or method through which I could pre-download maps of Tokyo and use the phone's GPS while I'm there?

    Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Sidenote: This site has a ton of useful info, I just got the Incredible, switched from the Moto Droid and am so happy with the phone. The moto droid music player used to skip if I used the music app and any other app. Now I use the Incredible as an ipod/GPS running tracker. It's the perfect phone, moto droid was way too clunky to run with.
