This wasn't addressed to me but tangogps is my favorite application on 
the Neo so I would like to say how easy it is to use. To have the maps 
on the SD card, simply make a directory somewhere on your card. I have 
my /home/root on the SD card so I add a Maps directory (~Maps). Then, 
simply bring up the tangogps (assuming you installed the package which 
is very easy) and tap the last tab at the bottom ('config'). The second 
input box is for 'Cache Dir'. Enter your directory! In my case I entered 

Then, I tap on the map, zoom in, and select 'map download' to preload 
maps for where I plan on going. I don't have gprs enabled so I do this 
while it is still connected to my usb.
