It would help to know your starting point; i.e. do you know about Navigon and Tom Tom?

Check out CityMaps2Go... provides offline access to its maps. You can choose which maps to download specifically when you need it. This'll save valuable space on your iPhone.

Just to be crystal clear, for the CityMaps2Go, assume I have no internet connection there, I will use the previous downloaded map in my iPhone and walk around, with NO GPS/Satellite guidance, just like the old day paper map.

Again, since I've no connection and access internet there therefore it will have no GPS pinpoint my current location in my iPhone when I walk around. For some reasons... it said "No roaming" needed I thought it will provided me some guidance based on my current location.

That is not true. The GPS receiver operates independently from the cellular or WiFi radios. If you have previously downloaded a map with CityMaps2Go, or similar off-line map solution, it will work.
