Default Re: Using Offline Maps With GPS without Data Plan

If you travel internationally then roaming becomes expensive and having maps on the phone is better. I miss my Nokia Maps on my old E71 (in actual fact I miss my Nokia, fullstop - installing a leaked OS 6 on my 9300 has made a huge difference though, I must add). The Nokia maps are downloaded and stored on the memory card and the turn by turn navigation is superb, in all far superior to the BB maps. I have tried Mobile Gmaps, not nearly as good and creating maps is messy and slow, it is not meant for offline storage so is a workaround. I saw the mobile Garmin on some one else' phone, very good, looks just like a Garmin so if you want to spend some rubbles then is the best option to go for by far.
