I am just wondering if there is a free GPS application that has roads on it (like the tomtom) that doesn't use the internet.

And you can stop here too as if you search a bit you'll see this doesn't exist (yet?).

Greedy Huh? Either Pay to Get Roads Via a data Plan. Or Pay for Maps for TomTom. Why would someone take the time to compile very complex maps to work with GPS software and Give it away for free?

I'm sorry to say, but Capitalism Rules!

Checkout Terracrosser - Free (till now at least), requires no data plan, you need a PC with internet connection though to download maps either from Google Or Yahoo available free, Terracrosser comes with an application (on the PC) to package the Google/Yahoo maps that can be transfered to your Kaiser, NO voice prompts, no route planning, no other bells and whistles - basic tracking of position using the GPS on free road maps but what more you can expect for free.

I downloaded tomtom 7 to give it a try and it completely surpassed all expectations I had for it. Sure, the graphics may not be stunning but all of the recent roadwork around my city was on there and I was very impressed with how many poi's I had access too. I purchased the maps this morning and I recommend you do the same, you won't regret it.

Smile Free GPS Software
Guys, Try http://www.amazegps.com/welcome.php. Works pretty OK if you do not want to pay for a service like ATT Navigator for instance. Remember it will still require a data plan so not completely "FREE"
