Googles maps question
Is there any way to load any of the maps/images that are used by google map onto the iPhone?
Sometimes when I am driving and I leave a 3G area, I still use google maps, but now the data connection prevents any phone calls.
It would also be nice to be able to use it when the phone and wifi are turned off.
If there isn't anything like that, I would love to see a GPS app where you can download certain maps from a server, and use the GPS without having wifi and/or the phone turned on. Even if it isn't turn my turn direction, but we could still use maps, still create routes, etc.

When I was in the US without data, I used Google Maps at the hotel on WiFi, and then used the screen-shot feature to save the maps I needed to the camera roll.
When I headed out, I could check what I needed, whenever I needed.
'Bout close as we can get until they get the turn-by-turn licensing sorted out...

I think, in terms of direction, Google Maps cache should be able to get you through. This is what I normally do.
1) Access Google Map direction through a wifi source.
2) Proceed through all the step of directions
3) Return to step #1
4) Close Google Map until its needed again
I can run through my journey without any problem.
