Hi guys. Love the show. A question for you.

I’m traveling to Europe in a few months with a Sprint HTC EVO. I know that CDMA doesn’t work there, but I’m looking for an app that has the ability to download & store maps on the SD card of Dutch & German cities ahead of time since there is no 3G/4G connection to use in real time. Suggestions?

Aloha and Mahalo,

Eric
