I've read this post here: Saving Google Maps on iOS but it didn't mention anything about MotionX GPS caching Google Maps tiles. I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that it can cache proprietary tiles or Bing tiles or something, but can it cache Google tiles? That would be sweet if it could!

From the MotionX GPS manual:

Unfortunately due to Microsoft restrictions on Bing maps and Google restrictions on Google maps, these maps types can't be cached or stored onboard. By contrast, MotionX road and terrain maps may be cached and downloaded.

Thanks. It's nice to know that. I'll just use AccuTerra then. –  SeniorShizzle Feb 2 '11 at 8:07
