/ Best apps navigation on android?
It means that the person thinks that the thing is very good.
Slang for "I would definitely..."
The free, open source maps like OpenStreetMap and OpenCycleMap can be cached for offline use (like Google Maps on Android). You can also buy detailed topographical maps for a number of countries, such as OS maps for the UK, for use offline: http://www.viewranger.com/en-gb/world-of-maps

The free, open source maps like OpenStreetMap and OpenCycleMap can be cached for offline use (like Google Maps on Android). OruxMaps works the same way with the free online mapping sources.
For ViewRanger you can also buy detailed topographical maps for a number of countries, such as OS maps for the UK, for use offline: http://www.viewranger.com/en-gb/world-of-maps
OruxMaps requires you to make your own detailed topo maps if you need them, either using the app or on a PC.
I know of at least one other app, Custom Maps, which allows you to make your own maps and which will plot your location on a custom map, but it doesn't have all the other navigation features that ViewRanger does eg track logs, waypoints etc. Simple and straightforward if all you need is a location pinpointed on a map.
Memory map is ok. You can't get it on Google play you need to go to their website.
You can now
The best app I found was MM Tracker, but it had to be removed from Google.Play at the request of Memory Maps. It then went to live on Amdroid Market but is no longer available there.
MM Tracker was an excellent app, which I paid for. When I wiped my Tablet clean I could no longer install it, even though I downloaded my copy. :-(
Not a fan of Memory Maps as it is not exactly easy to use. :-(
Can it use digital OS maps?
I have the whole country in 1-50 and most of the country in 1-25.
MM Tracker is still available if you look carefully :)
PM me for a copy, you have paid for it after all :)

Yes I did pay for it and twice. The first time on Google.Play and the second time on Android Market. This makes me worried about the future of apps, and how they can be removed.
You have mail. :-)
You also have mail :)
If you have the APK file and installs, but MM Tracker doesn't work - it is mostly likely becasue versions of Android from 4.2 onwards are incompatible with it, something for current users to bear in mind if they have the option of not updating their OS.
Do you have a time machine? The Android Market came first, and then changed its name to Google Play, with market.android.com redirecting to play.google.com. AFAIK the two were never available at the same time.
All purchases on the Android Market should have been carried over to Google Play, so long as you used the same Google ID.

What's this, then?

Oops, found it! There's at least one download link here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=31638962&postcount=377 (link seems to work).
OSGeo is the best mapping app I've found, although it does require a data connection:
