Does the 3.0 ability to embed maps allow for offline viewing? If so this could open the door for an actually reliable offline map service. The current one I have is offmaps (which is missing a lot of data from sydney.

I would really like to know because this would open a lot of doors for the ipod touch.

Are you expecting the entire maps database to be embedded in the app?

Would caching of maps you have visited be sufficient?
