I've iPhone 3Gs and want to download Google maps to use them offline with GPS.

So is there a good app do that for me ?

Note: i don't want to jailbreak my iPhone.

No, nor will you find one (in the official App Store). Storing the image tiles breaches Google's data licence. There are a bunch of apps that use OpenStreetMap, which has a more liberal licence.

  • As Stephen noted, it's against the licensing terms. Last time I looked they allowed for some small images like they have next to directions, but other than that you're out of luck (and they definitely don't respond to GPS). – Matthew Frederick Dec 25 '10 at 18:16

NO.

You can't download stuff like that for offline without a jailbreak.

I know it's not very helpful but some Android phones do have this capability.

I would recommend

or
