    I'm trying to find a good GPS app which works offline, my handheld Magellan GPS finally died.

    I looked in the Store but the way it's indexed really makes it hard to find anything, I need good offline maps, most everything I've looked at or tried really do not work that good when you get out of cell tower coverage and the maps are not contour maps, but just satellite imagery or road maps.

    It's offline. Works of same maps as Nokia. May not get you through the Arden's forest, but it works.

    I installed maaloo Outdoor Maps, seems to be very accurate, also considering Outdoor Navigation.

    So how has Maaloo worked for you? I installed Maaloo 8, it works great so far.
    I was concerned about the GPS capability of the Icon because the native HERE maps gets wonky when you're away from cell service, but the GPS seems to work well with Maaloo. I think the native HERE maps software defaults to using cell towers for location and will only use the GPS system if there is NO cell service.

    It's nothing like a handheld GPS Navigation Device, but if you are lost it would get you back to a road, camp or home.
