well if your using a HTC sensation like me, there's a preloaded app called "locations" that's able download map areas for easy viewing if your cant get WiFi maps or w/e. 1st map is free iirc (I downloaded United Kingdom free) but then u need to pay a small fee for others. Not ideal, but handy.

though if you don't have a sensation, I'm not too sure what apps (there's crapp load of map apps) that will do what u need.

hope this is helpful in anyway.

How is one map defined? Like one street/city/county/country?

they are split into countries. for USA for example you have the options:

Canada
Mexico
north America
south America
Uruguay

for Europe u have:

southern Europe
UK and Ireland
Russia
other listed countries(can't remember full list)

for Asia:

south east Asia
GCC countries
other listed etc.

that's generally whats on offer. its quite extensive.

It would be sweet if someone came out with a Google Earth app that accesses a database saved on the SD card.

As an alternative to Google Maps you could check out Mapdroyd, or better yet read our review before you make up you mind. It has a lot of drawbacks, but it is basically a street map in digital form.
