That is simply not true.

You can download OSM maps and use them locally. I think that's what YAAC 
is doing right now. The OSM license allows you to do that, and the really 
nice thing is that you can download the *vector* data and zoom and render 
it it as you like, with whatever resolution you happen to have on your 
display.

The Google Maps license does not allow you to download and use offline.
