Found a really good free programme that someone has developed.
Its called BlueGPS4droid. It allows you to connect external devices in any programme from Maps to Navigation.
There is no trial or time limit and it just works.
Don't know if its in the market but I found it here post #19
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?p=8158118

Direct download link
http://sourceforge.net/p/bluegps4droid/home/

I accept no responsibility for this software, developer is distributing as freeware but usual warnings about using external software ect.

Just download .apk save to dir on N900 /home/user/MyDocs/extras is a good place.
In NitDroid download any file manager from Market I use OIFilemanager.
Navigate to extras folder.Click and install.
Remember to allow external applications to be installed in settings.
Enjoy Google Maps with voice guidance for free.
Writing this on N900 spelling mistakes ect.

Downloaded BlueGPS4droid. Worked just as easily as Bluetooth Mouse GPS. Stayed connected for the drive home, navigation worked fine.

Now I almost wish I hadn't paid for Bluetooth Mouse GPS. O well, it was only $3.

You are very off topic for this. Go to forum.nitdroid.com or one of the help threads here. Sounds like you need a fasted sd card.

According to this link it is possible to offline use GE on iPhone's. Is there any caching option for the Android version?

Earth Android app preinstalled is less than 6mb, but almost 30mb when installed.

Why is it so hard to get the N900 's GPS up and running?
Is there a problem with drivers? or is there other stuff?

I also found this:
http://dev.openaos.org/ticket/116

This describes how to use the nl5350 gps with Android, i think...
