Stand alone GPS program for HTC Touch or Windows Mobile 6.1 (For use in Europe)

I just joined the forums and I wasn't sure where to post this, but i'm going to Europe on October 18th and I wanted to know if there was a seperate gps program I can use because Google Maps, and Windows Live Search both use data and have to dial out.

Is there any program I can use that just uses the GPS so I can use the device in Europe? I know I won't be able to connect to anything over there, so I was wondering if anyone knew.

Thanks for the help!

So I take it you need a data connection on every Pocket PC phone to use the GPS?

You can buy Gamin XT and the European maps for PPC... There is a routable Worldwide Basemap for major highways that come with it if I recall correctly...

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?...true&pID=11413

Note that there are online features, but you can turn them off...

I bought this so I could GPS where there was no Cell service at all...
