Android gps program

Im planning an off grid wheeling expedition this summer and I need an app for my droid that I can download some maps to so I can use them off line. What'chall using?
Id like:
cache maps, google maps OK
enter waypoints in LAT/LONG to store routes

I have a decent GPS app, but it doenst cache off line maps and google maps doesnt work well with storing routes and lat/long coordinates.

I have been using Google Maps when I can get a connection, also tried EveryTrail to track my movement. Nice feature about it is when you take a photo with your phone it is placed on the map. Still looking for a better solution.

Google miss ok fine for the maps, but sucks for storing lat/long waypoints. Its fine for routing, but sucks as a GPS. I really need to route via GPS coordinates

I use "Alpine Quest". It saved me in a bad situation climbing in a mountain valley, and I use it to plot points in the desert frequently.

back country navigator caches to the sd card and uses a ton of free topo maps and will work with out any connection. its 10 bucks but try the demo to make sure you like the maps they have for your area.
