You can stop Google Maps deleting it by going into application permissions for Google Maps and setting "Application Management" to "Deny".
(sorry if I'm stating the bleeding obvious here, but just in case)
I've used it offline with Openstreetmap tiles (instructions here http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Kosmos_And_MGMaps
if you're interested), but it's a bit slow and for any reasonable resolution for any reasonable area a lot of space on the card is needed.
