    I'm going to buy Apple Touch next month and I'm going to install google maps on it.

    My question is, can I store the maps I need for offline use? For example whole london city's map into the touch's flash drive? Or do I have to download all the maps each time I open the app?

    I noticed today that It will cache a small amount of map for viewing offline.
    No where near the scale you are talking about.
    I would say it is only about a 1/2 in all directions.

    Hope that helps.


    Other than that, I haven't seen or heard of saving maps, besides doing the book mark trick.

    Actually I don't care about the size.
    1 GB? 2 GB? Doesn't matter

    Question is can I do that?

    Someone should find a way to load the maps from a GPS into the touch and iphone. those dont download anything, they keep it all stored in memory.
