    Is the Google Maps app on iPhone, offline compatible app ?
    I mean, does it help you navigate or search for POIs when you are not connected to the internet ?

    Im looking for an offline solution.

    For the most part no.

    You can cache an area of the map by typing "ok maps" (no quotes) in the search field though.

    Like what he said above but you will still need data to route the trip.

    YOU try it (there is a trial version) come back and let us know it's worth the $$ they are asking.

    I use sygic. I used it with android and nor I use it with iphone and as far as I am concerned it is the very best offline app. I tried pretty much all on android. I don't know where you are, but they did have sygic na for 30.00 down from the regular price. In my opinion worth every penny as cell data is not dependable where we live not to mention data is expensive.

    And be sure to check out their Blackbox in-app purchase - it's a dashboard cam that uses the device's rear facing camera to record the road, all the while still displaying the directions.
