I don't have enough rep. to comment under other's post, so I had to open this thread. I read some threads on Google Maps here and the question still persists.

Is there a straightforward method to cache my city's map strictly onto the SD card (as I am running out of internal space), possibly in a way that this cache doesn't get deleted in 30 days? On the other hand it would be cool if it auto-updated itself with the latest map updates, points of interests from Google, strictly when on Wi-Fi.

I already heard of Google's native solution, and of Brut Mod -- but don't know if any of the two would come close to my goal. How can I achieve it?

Edit. Added link for Brut Mod. Sorry, don't have the link any more for that other question.

    Hmpf That would belong to the category Recommendations again, and thus be off topic according to our FAQ. A little re-phrasing could save it from that fate, let me see... How about this? A link to that "Brut Mod" would be helpful (never heard of it). And a link to that "other post" as reference. – Izzy Mar 27 '13 at 7:25
  • Isn't it like I'm looking for a solution to a problem? – superuser Mar 27 '13 at 19:18
  • I didn't flag it for closure, as a re-phrasing converted it from "which one is better" (speculative/subjective/recommendation) to "how can I solve my problem" and thus made it on-topic again (I tried to be helpful, and preventing your question from being closed ;) How To Ask Android Questions The Smart Way provides some more very useful hints btw ;) // Thanks for the added links, I will dive into it. – Izzy Mar 27 '13 at 19:42
  • Looks like your question just was reduced by the "Brut Mod". On the last page of that XDA thread you'll find: These Maps apk files have been removed due to a copyright infringement complaint from Google. Which only leaves you with either Google Labs own pre-caching -- or taking a look at e.g. Maps (+). – Izzy Mar 27 '13 at 20:06
  • So did this solve your issue? Shall I convert it into an answer? – Izzy Apr 20 '13 at 16:46
