A Solution
In reply to Isabel Cutler, May 24, 2014

If you have no data roaming or have poor coverage, Google Maps is useless. Even if you do cache the maps. It will not let you set up a new route with no data connection.

The Apps people have suggested such as Navigon and Tom Tom are really good. And much nicer to use than Google maps.

The best free solution I found is the Android app OSMAnd . After installing it and the maps, no data is needed and, although not perfect, is a competent navigation system.
