    Does such an app exist? I was with my friends in the car yesterday without a street directory trying to find where to go. With no open wifi around we had to guess. If I had an app that was like a street directory it would have been a life saver.

    Question: Is there such an app? (caching on google maps is not efficient)

    It wouldn't be very big if you just had a map of your own local area or city. I'm not talking about an offline map of the world. I think google should implement a draw and capture technology into the google maps, where you simply drag a sqaure around the area you are interested in and it saves all the images for that area offline.

    Thats would be very useful.
    I'd post that idea in the application ideas section if I were you.

    I dont know if anyone here remembers back to 1.1.4. But someone made an offline maps viewer, well kinda. What happend was, people use a program that reads google maps (this was on computer) and saved them to your hard drive. Then you simply put the map into a folder on your ipod/iphone and you were set. Offline maps and street searching. But even for a city, it was a very large file.

    That sounds really cool. Even if the file sizes were huge it would still be worth it. I wonder what happened to the development of that...

    WOW! That is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for, only I wish they had one that I could use for Sydney, Australia.

    EDIT: I wrote to the developers on their website asking them if an Australian road map would be available in the future.
