Can someone give me recommendation on a good turn-by-turn navigation app?

Main requirement is that the maps must be offline, as it's going to be used around Australia.

If you need a download-mode jig ASAP, you're welcome to borrow mine!  Works with SGS I/II/III.  I also have a SIM cutter available (Dunedin) - happy to post either to you at your cost.

Not interested in getting an Aust sim card and prepay data plan?

The person it's for is only going there for a holiday; I suspect they'll want to hit the ground running so-to-speak, and drive out of the airport with it working?

Seems like a decent investment if they can get Aus/NZ maps?

NextG sim with a 30 recharge will give you 500mb and about 220aud worth of phone calls, more than enough to get Giggle Maps up and running.

i had Aura (offline gps) but after using google maps I never looked back. Google maps is constantly improving and IMO the best.

Installed CM7stable version last night.  Seems pretty smooth and after a few reflashs no errors. Works a charm.  Battery is crap though (havent calibrated though).  Will give galnet miui a go tonight.  Best rom ive tried.  But in saying that ive been overseas for a while and the last ROM I used was Cognition 1.2 or 3.  Sitting around 35% now with 8 hours use and 2 hours on screen time.

Try Dlev's ROM with Siyah's kernel - I can get 3 days easily with light use. . . . it's awesome.

I think getting a prepay sim with some data is the best way to go. I did it when I was in the US earlier this year and was a life saver (although wasn't getting 3G speeds, just edge, but it was enough).

Nofam, when I looked at XDA for that ROM it appears it is for the  I9000 rather than I9100, or is there a I9100 version as well?
