    It seems to me that they all use Google Mapping, so, aside from paid vs free version what is the difference? What do you use? Do they all need wi-fi?

    Nogago is an Android app available in appworld - it can cache maps in advance, so wifi or 3g in advance, grab the maps and then no data connection is necessary. There are similar apps.

    Osmand. It's essentially the same as Nogago, or should I say vice-versa, since Nogago is an adaption of the open source Osmand. Nogago, I believe, is more geared for hiking, biking, etc. Osmand only needs wifi to download maps for offline use- it can chart a course offline and reroute offline where necessary. Nogago is probably similar. Both apps are free in app world.

    One of the first map app i wrote down for my "download list" was Osmand, but I still haven't done it. So, if i wanted to chart a vacation travel route from California to Wyoming can I download those Osmand maps and then look them up while driving without wi-fi? Sounds like what I need.

    You should be able to. I think you're limited to 10 or 12 map downloads with the free app, unlimited with the paid app. So as long as you don't pass through 10 or 12 states to get to your destination, it shouldn't be a problem.
