GPS app that does not require an internet connection



I have a blackberry curve 9300, which supports gps, and I have often been in areas where there is very poor if any cell phone reception. In these areas my gps navigation on my phone works, but the map does not refresh and load, therefore I cannot use this application for directions in such areas. Are there any applications that I can download where the map is downloaded directly for the country that I am in? Additionally, I have found this same issue for other applications such as books. If I am reading a book, the application only loads one chapter from the internet at a time and therefore if I am staying over in an area like this, I cannot read more than one chapter. Is there a way of downloading an entire book from app world?
