Offline GMaps on Android
Motorcycle enthusiast, rejoice! When was the last time you were out and about at some remote location where there was zero cellular reception and couldn't pull up a map on your phone? Now you can carry around a copy of any google map and view it anytime, even without cellular service. I hear they are using vector-based map tiles for smaller files. It also makes me wonder if they are using the new HTML 5 local storage feature.
