I am an American who will be backpacking in Europe for about 2 months. I am considering buying the new 32gb iPod Touch to use for music and movies, but also to use for accessing maps while on the road. Accessing maps at WiFi hotspots is very important when considering this purchase before my trip. I have briefly looked up Google maps for Europe while playing with the iPod Touch at an Apple store. The results didn't blow me away so I'm wondering if there is something i am missing. Can anyone help shed some light on the capabilities/possibilities? Maybe I could pre-map my route to access at a later time while not connected to the internet? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
