    So I gave my "phone offline" pre to my dad to replace his old dying Windows Mobile PocketPC. He seems to like it so far as a PDA, but one thing I haven't been able to help him with is offline GPS. Google maps stops working as soon as it looses data connection. Is there a way to cache Google maps or a complete stand-alone GPS program? I know there is Navit, but it's kind of confusing for him.

    I think navit is the only offline GPS solution available for the pre (yet)

    Yeah, I've been playing with Navit, but I can't really figure out the interface. Trying to input an address to navigate to isn't the easiest.

    Mapping Tool Lets you work offline.

    L\'Haut-Parleur WebOS: MapTool 0.9.6 on PreCentral, Wikay 1.0.1 in the AppCatalog, Match This! Pro in the AppCatalog

    The webOS 2.1 meta-doctor and then pruchasing nDrive would be your option right now. That's assuming they fixed that bug in HP's db that wasn't recognizing Pres on 2.1.
