Does anybody has a trick or something to bring GPS navigation to a PC / Laptop Google maps version ?
|- On handheld version, there is no "cache" mode. So you need to be connected to internet all the time when using it.|

The bigger the area you need to have in the cache, the longer it will take to get it in there.
There also does not seem to be any way to tell what is actually in the cache so it's hard to know if you may have put too much into it and lost some of the first part you have been browsing, except to disconnect from the internet and go back to look at the early areas to see if they're still there.
