Google maps now allows you to cache areas. Huge areas. I cached most of south India in my phone before I left home and always have Devon cached (it expires after a month or so, but you can update it).


I use Juice - I was lucky enough to get a free upgrade to the "pro" version too.

PS. Muggins has to buy a new monitor for the desktop. It's looking like
the shortlist will probably be a matching 22" Iiyama to go with my
existing Iiyama. The old 19" 4:3 has developed a nice strobing fault on
'resume' after standby, so I think the time has come to retire it from
full-time duty to embedded use! Anyone have any particular Yays or Nays
on monitors - I've had mixed experiences with most manufacturers myself,
with the exception of Iiyama which seem to have been consistent for the
price. Has to have VGA, DVI and HDMI as a pre-req. as I need the option
to switch between more devices with different video outputs!

My BENQ "Senseye3" is working just fine. It's a 24" full HD 1920x1080

Looks like you can still get them:


I've had mine since August 2013... It has all 3 inputs and audio (which could be better, but it's OK)
