There are several stand alone GPS programs. I use Pharos Software called Ostia. (www.pharosgps.com). I loaded the program on my Tilt and then loaded the Ostia Maps for Western United States including Hawaii. It took about 400K on my storage card.

I don't know what country you are in, so I can't be sure it will work for you. The newest version comes on an SD card, so you could just put it in your phone if their maps cover your country. It gives turn by turn directions. No data connection is required. I download QuickGPS satellite date once every 7 days. I use WiFi for that so I don't incur data costs. QuickGPS is built into the Tilt, so the weekly download helps the GPS chip find the satellites faster. Tom Tom also makes a system that will work on most PPCs, but I don't use that one so I can't advise you on it.
