    If you want to use GPS without wifi:

    True offline maps for your Android - unplugged ! | MapDroyd

    It has maps you can download by state, province, or country you can download on the thrive or PC, so if there is no wifi they will still work.

    Tell me how does this work with the navigation app on the Thrive. It downloads maps but from what I can see there is no way to access them. Am I doing something the Mydroyd app does not even let you view them as stated on their website. Any help would be great if this really works.....when it downloads it puts it on your Thrive instead of your sd card, even thoughit says its on your sd card. Well I moved the files to my sdcard, and now its trying to download them again. I might be doing something wrong but if it doesnt work with the installed nav app what good is it?

    Vgeezy, it looks like it's a server application that runs on your device. And other map applications can pull map data from this local server.
    Being less memory usage, and one map server that can serve to multiple applications, and it manages the data, so you don't have 2 or 3 mapping applications storing the same map data in multiple locations.

    It is a self-contained mapping application that runs on the tablet. If you go to Manage Maps, you can use the checkboxes to say which maps you want, and as you exit it will revalidate the maps and offer to download them directly (you might not want to do that for 50 states, but your locality might be enough), or download via an HTML file with links embedded that download the maps as zip files you put into your MapDroyd/data directory.

    It does not integrate with the other apps. The main map app has a labs feature that can cache a 10 mile radius. (Clarification - you have to enable it and it is accessed in the "Places" app)
