Over one billion people use Google Maps services every month. On the Google Maps app, these users are often searching for local businesses - from restaurants, to car dealerships, to dentists, and more. Recently, we launched a new version of the Google Maps app for Android, iPhone, and iPad where we introduced several new features. Today we're introducing an updated ad experience we think is more attractive for users and more effective for advertisers.

Yes, ads in Google's mobile Maps applications. Fantastic.

My favorites are OsmAnd and Mapfactor. The maps are updated each 1-3 months.
Navfree has very old maps (at least in Spain). Navfree, ZANavi and Navit have a very crappy offline search.
