Map caching ++ ... but search ability lacking
I was thinking this would be mighty useful when I downloaded it, because of its map storage ability. Unfortunately how can it help me find places if I can't search for addresses? Open Maps also pales in comparison to Google maps in detail, and pin drops are not always identified with the correct location. I will wait for an update that will improve its capability, but for now it is of limited use to me.

Needs to Update Map, very outdated at least 9 years
I installed this app because of the high reviews and the fast map loading but as soon as i tested it out with my own address i immediately noticed that the map was very outdated from at least 9 years (map of the year 2000). I like the map features and the fast loading time but i will not be able to use it much unless it gets an overhaul update soon. Please update the map to the year 2009 at least and i will be happy and give it a higher rating.

Quick and Slick!
I grew up spending the weekends in the passenger seat of my dad's truck, navigating us to and from remote camping locations with a glovebox full of maps. Most of the time I launch Google Maps to see where I am or find an alternate route, I have to wait, and wait, and wait some more, for it to lock in, load all the tiles, maybe clear out an old search or directions, its a pain. But with OpenMaps, I hit the app, and boom, there it is, showing me where I am, and what's around me. And if I need to zoom in or out and flick around to find an alternate route, it loads faster than Google Maps, too. Sure, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that Google Maps does (yes, it does do routes, but its a little awkward), but I don't need all of that all the time. For $1, this is a great, handy app. And before you take that one negative review too seriously, just remember... haters gotta hate.

I was okay spending money for this because it supports openstreetmap data. The map-cache ability is a killer feature; load times of saved map tiles is astounding. Other features need some work still, but this is worth a look if you're like me and you do more quick-checks than destination-searches.

Great for seeing OpenCycleMaps and Caching offline maps
Developer responds to feedback by improving the app and updating often, showing good support for customers. Having access to the OpenCycleMaps is useful for planning urban cycling routes while out in the field and away from my PC. Cycle maps show streets and contour lines, making it possible to plan the least hilly route to my next landmark. Can't do that with the Googlemaps yet on the iPhone. Car routing via pins is good now. Yes, search is completely worthless as is, but I hope a new search provider and results presentation layer is next. Or, simply remove the search feature until a search provider can be found and integrated. I'd say that for now the search icon space would better be served by an options screen with a link to much needed tutorial screens. I find this app mainly useful as a way to bring openmaps with me because it simply has things Google does not. For search and routing, the stock Google app is fine.

Waste of money
Search feature never returns anything accurate. I would not keep it even if it was free. 1.99 wasted.
