    Is it possible to make Google Maps cache maps for when you're offline?
    The GPS keeps going, but it just shows the blip in the middle of nowhere.


    If not, is there a similar program to it avail that can do offline cacheing?

    You can't reliably force it to cache- sounds like you need to download a sat nav type app such as Tom Tom - although there a much cheaper versions in the app store.

    Nope. If you want an app with local maps then use one with local maps as suggested above.

    Is there a way to read the information about shops/hotels/restaurants that appear in the native app? I can see a shop in my area but if I tap the icon, it does not display the info (address, phone, etc.)

    If I use the maps in the browser of another app (e.g. IA), then the info do show up. Any ideas to fix this? Thanks.
