Excelent. Its working here on Honeycomb. 16km area gets downloaded. No sat or traffic info.
 
I wish you could choose a larger area. I did about 8 areas around Atlanta so I'd have solid coverage. Still, it's a great first step.
 
I rarely lose coverage, but if I'm on the phone and need to re-route, it can't do it. That's the only use case I've seen where AT&T's voice and data at the same time would be useful.
 
This is a lovely addition to a great bit off software.
 
Hi,

Has this Labs feature been removed from Google Maps for Android? My Google Maps (latest update) only shows Scale Bar and Measure as downloads...

Cheers
