Hi

Anyone know how to do this?

The only way I know of currently is just to surf around the map while I'm at home on wifi to try and build a cache of most of the city.

Does google brut maps and google brut nav use the same map tiles/data? - from my experience they seem to use the same tiles, but i'm not 100% sure.

If google brut maps & google brut nav, both use the same map tiles, does anyone know what zoom level i should be using to cache the tiles for future navigation?

Thanks

apparently can use gmapmaker, see post here

But I have read that the tiles for mobile google maps are slightly different to desktop google maps, so if you use a mix of gmap tiles and mobile phone tiles they don't perfectly line up. (Road width is different, and text labels are a different size)
