It is very interesting to hear of your travails in India .. here in  
Austria, the map data is available for the most part, and what I have  
done with TangoGPS is navigate all over the areas I need, while  
connected to the Internet, and 'soaked the cache' as much as  
possible.  This is a very rewarding experience, somehow, especially  
with daily updates to my datasets (trace tiles!) .. and it can be used  
in offline mode pretty well, if you give it space.

So I hope you come up with good data for India.  I always wanted to  
have a map of the entire world available in my pocket, so maybe we get  
closer and closer to that .. ;)
