OK, so Google maps now has an offline mode, as mentioned here:
http://www.androidupdate.us/google-maps-offline-downloading-areas/#comment-349.

Big whoop, what is the point to this seeing as you can't do any kind of directions. So I can see a map of new york for example, but if I need to get from point a to point b, and I have no idea how to get there, what good does this do me? I don't know, maybe I am doing something wrong, or maybe I'm just too retarded to see the big picture.

If I am right, then does anybody know of a FREE, not trial, FREE, app that will let me download a map of a certain city, while online, then be able to search it while offline. If there isn't a free one, then one that costs around $20 or less.

thanks for the reply, I am very wary of any app that has a total of more than 1000 negative reviews. By negative I mean 3 or less. If I have to upgrade the budget to assure quality, fine, but there is no reason why this device can't behave the same way as a standalone GPS device.
