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.

Fast loading and simple
First and foremost, if you think you are getting a $2 version of TomTom, you are sadly mistaken. This is a fast basic map viewer that caches maps for when you are out of cell range. It also has the advantage of being able to access maps that are, in some cases, much more current than Google. The openstreetmap project encourages people to add their gps tracks to flesh out the maps in areas where new roads are springing up faster than weeds. It's a project that I hope will take off, I've uploaded two tracks myself from the last two days.

Some suggestions
I would agree with the earlier reviewer that this is a solid beginning. A few items for the developer to consider: 1) how, exactly, does one remove a pin? This is less than clear, not to mention quite frustrating. 2) can I rename a pin location with my own personal names? I look forward to the next update.
