uplug, 07 Dec 2010hi google do you know what is ovi maps ?? no my friend Google do not know / what is ovi maps lol/ Nokia 4 life android sucks
Why on earth does google call that "offline mode"?
Unless of course that is as offline as they will ever intend it to be. I wonder why so few people care about Google's datamining, it scares the hell out of me.

While you navigate, it surely will pop up 'places of interest' based on your current location - it couldn't be any more simple than that, so, yeah, selling ads will work just fine for Google.

google copying nokia with the vector graphics :s but nokia maps much better and available offline. you can download maps for the whole world in 6GB :)
That's not a true offline mode, I don't think Google will ever allow that, it's against their business model.
What we want is completely FREE navigation just like in nokia phones which support download-able maps without the need for hotspots or 3G connection.
