Google hasn't made a Maps-only app for the Mac. What's wrong with http://maps.google.com?

Because you might not always have network connectivity.
I seem to remember a Google Maps app on the Maemo platform (Nokia 800 series?) that could cache the tiles for offline viewing of the maps. You could specify the lat/longitude boundaries and the zoom levels you wanted to cache.
Hmm, a quick Internet search turned this up: http://code.google.com/p/gmapcatcher/

The OP never mentioned what OS they are using.
Also, even if you cache google maps, you won't have any routing capabilities...
I use IGuidance for XP in parallels. It's routing can be a little buggy, but it has the best interface.
