Good Start

:
The Good:

Detailed map of the country available off line. This would be very helpful when navigating off line. Get rid of the road atlas (if you haven't already. I use Tom Tom on my iphone, but using this on the ipad gives a great perspective rather than just directions. Hey hon, what's this body of water we're crossing ? The Atlantic Ocean ? OMG

The ok I guess:

Cost for the basic app + 3 tokens is 1.99. (token = area download). For full flexibility you would pay $8.99. "Full flexibility"
gets you guides to the area, restaurants etc. This is the revenue generator, and the gerbils have to be fed.

The bad:

The guides have very little information. For example, the Dare County, NC guide has 9 restaurants. Dare Co. (Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, etc. is a major beach tourist area. There are a lot more than 9 there, cf Yelp. However, a church you're looking for may be in there.

Summary: Well worth the $1.99 for the offline map of the US, effectively a great road atlas at a detailed level. Not worth it for the guide information, yet. Perhaps in the future. Without user reviews some guide areas may not be useful, eg restaurants. Some guide areas are/will be. Hmmm, that Eiffel Tower is around here somewhere.

5/5 stars

Great app, response from developer

:
This app work as advertised perfectly. The maps are free, just charge you for guides. this is a must for all iPod owners! Also, the developer response to bugs was fast and responsive.

4/5 stars

Caching = big win

:
I love the offline caching, so important now especially since 3G plans are bandwidth capped. Nice in rural areas too. Beautiful on iPad screen. Nice that it has OSM bug reporting for those OSMers out there. Directions routing is fair, it is not nearly as good as gmaps, but that is to be expected. Directions give way too many "continue" and "slight turn" instructions. For a 100 mile interstate trip you get dozens of instructions which makes it difficult to find the important turns. There use be a option in the gui or prefs to filter this...

Some other nice improvements would be to add a max zoom level cutout for downloading routes. That way you could download only the detail you need and keep the download sizes more reasonable. Also getting directions should be as simple as gmaps with the departure and destination input boxes next to each other.

Aside from these little ui issues it's an overall great app.
