    I have an Ipod Touch 4g. Obviously i don't have access to a 3g signal and i can't get wifi anywhere on the road most times. Is there an app that you can pre-load maps and it uses GPS to give you real-time directions? Don't most devices these days have GPS built in without the need for internet access?

    First off the iPod Touch 4G does not have GPS. Its uses Skyhook wireless Technology (Google it)

    Second. Tom Tom is offline and you could use GPS in the app but it doesnt have GPS. Tom Tom has a whole offline map of which ever one you brought. Downside it cost a bit of cash but its worth it.

    TomTom would suffice.
    But you can always use the Maps app and set the route. It will be saved and can be accessed while offline. Been using this method quite awhile now to get to unfamiliar places.
