    Hi: I have just purchased the IPad Air 2 Wi-Fi and Cellular device...(I do not have a cellular plan as of now)...I know that the unit has a built in GPS chip...Can anyone recommend a really good GPS mapping program that downloads the maps, mainly USA, to the device so I do not have to depend on "on the fly" download of maps? There are so many mapping programs; I do not want to purchase a junk one!
    Thanks for your assistance...

    I use Pocket Earth, not a true GPS system but allows you to down load maps and use them off line, also has lots of other stuff, servos, hotels, railway stations, tourist stuff etc. you can create routes, and use them ofline etc. Have just done 2 months in Europe and was the only map we carried.

    I use pocket earth from the App store $4 approx. not a true GPS system but allows you to download maps and use them on line or ofline. Has lots of other stuff, servos, hotels, railway stations, tube maps tourist stuff etc. You can create routes and use them off line. Have just done 2 months in Europe and was only map we used. You can also create bookmarks for places you want to visit and they show up on the map allowing you to create a route to them

    CoPilot has a free version that you can try. It comes with a basic USA map. I doubt is has everything you want without paying for at least one or two in-app purchases, but you can try out the UI and decide if you like the way it works with no more investment than your time.

    I have an older, not-free, version of CoPilot. For the price at the time (about $26) it was a pretty good deal.

    That said, I rarely use it. I like Maps and Google Maps better, and since I have a cellular data plan I rarely need to fall back on CoPilot. But, having it there, just in case, makes me feel better.

    Interesting subject, so I looked at Pocket Earth. I noticed that the free app says that the upgrade to the Pro version is £2.99 (in the UK) and the Pro version is £7.99; both prices in the UK app store. As there does not appear to be any way to do the upgrade from inside the free version I emailed the authors last night and await a reply. I assume a typo...

    $4 would equate to the £2.99. Emailed the developers, but no reply yet...

    While no reply, I have noticed that the prices are now the same (£2.29 in the UK. -slight price drop too!)
