    I know their have been a few gps accessories for the ipod touch such as the GPS360 but the problem with that is you cannot get directions from it last time I checked

    I know you can get offline maps for it and it will track you on those but as of now has their been any breakthroughs on getting directions to work on these devices?

    Just took delivery of mine the other day and for all it works perfectly with the xGPS mapping software. However, it needs a compass rose to show direction of travel or direction to a given waypoint. Lat/Long co-ords would be helpful too.

    There's a perfect rose on the iGeocacher application but it doesn't appear to be compatible with the GPS360 module.

    If anyone comes accross a suitable application I'd love to know.

    The xGPS mapping software has a driving directions facility (to - from). It works independantly and does not have to be connected to Wi-Fi. Maps take a while to download - I downloaded the whole of west Cornwall (UK) and it took approximately 15 minutes.

    Links here, here and here.
