    It would be great if maps was usable off line. I would love to see the ability to see all the road maps in the world while the touch is offline. If your near wi-fi, you are not lost. If anyone can tackle this idea, it would be great.

    Thanks, Ridley

    Ok, if the iPod Touch has no outside source for information, it would need some amazingly good algorithm to predict the traffic conditions and a massive hard drive to save the maps and each change made throughout the entire world.

    Oh it's possible...

    ^ Haha, owned.

    Isn't the Maps source code not open source? How are we supposed to edit this/develop this?
