I don't yet have an iPhone but probably soon will. I generally like the 
Loadstone application except for real problems I continue to experience 
getting maps onto my Nokia N73. Presumably there are better ways than having 
to fiddle about moving things about through folders not intended for user 
manipulation, that commonly failed for me.

I would be willing to pay for such an application provided it is easy and 
intuitive to use and preferably not requiring constant cell connection.
