Question Trail Boss: Regarding the APPs and maps (specifically the USGS 7.5 maps) you previously mention; are the USGS free maps available even when you are not in cell phone range or when wifi connected? That is can you download the USGS maps and store them on the device and use them?
I have all the NY USGS 7.5 maps downloaded to my phone's SD card through my Memory Map account which makes them accessible anytime and without any type of connection. Do the APPs you mention give you this ability as well?
I'm curious and hope I'm making some sense with the question...
