    Are there any GPS applications that I can preload a route from home so that I use minimum data while on the go?

    From what I understand the GPS does not use data but loading the google maps while driving does use data.

    Thanks in advance everyone for your insight.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Tom-tom, navigon and many others save the maps on the phone so you don't need to use any data to navigate.

    Do you have any experience with Garmin's Street Pilot it seems to be the cheapest and I've always had good luck with Garmin products. I also cannot tell from the description of Street Pilot if you can preload all the maps you need.

    First, why did you make the title have absolutely nothing to do with the content of your post?

    Second, no, Garmin StreetPilot does not preload.

    Sorry about that, how do I change the thread title? I was just stating that I have a 3GS and I have a question about GPS. I should have been more descriptive.

    Do you have a link to the specific tom-tom or navigon you guys would recommend there are several versions available.

    Depends what kind of GPS app you're after. As long as you don't need turn-by-turn directions, I'd recommend MotionX GPS.

    I've used it on several trips abroad. You can either pre-load a circular area or a the area between two points. It lets choose the levels of zoom you want, and whether you want a terrain map, or a road-based map.
