When I was stationed over there in the early 2000's, you could buy a map from Esso that had all their other stations located on the map. If you're looking for a non-tech solution to make sure you can get fuel, this is one option.

When I traveled to Germany a few years ago (US citizen) I realized that my cell phone plan wouldn't have data service over there, and as such, Google maps would be useless. I looked around for a GPS app that allowed you to pre-load maps, and eventually decided on CoPilot GPS (I have no association with the app, just a satisfied user.) You do need to pay for ...

http://maps.adac.de/ has this feature. The page appears to be German only, but it shouldn't be too difficult to use. The first input box on the left is your starting point, the one below it your destination. Then click on "Weitere auswählen (0/38)" and check the box next to "Tankstellen & Spritpreise".

USGS is working on incorporating data from non-governmental organizations into the US Topo maps, however that work is expected to take a while, and some types of data are considered low priority. A FAQ entry addresses these issues in some depth: Why are there ...

National Geographic Maps are available for popular recreation areas such as national parks. They are much more detailed than the USGS maps. Sometimes also local organisations/companies produce their own maps (e.g. this one for the Wasatch ...

The Garmen GPS maps do not show detail in the regions such as Mtskheta where Kazbegi is located. I used and still use the free app maps.me in Mtskheta, Kakheti, Shida Kartli, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Imereti, Guria, and Adjara. To get this, you have to first download the app to your iPhone, then the Georgia specific map. It works offline, shows your location, ...

You can download Garmin Openstreetmap. In the drop-down list, just select Europe -> Georgia (they classifiy Georgia as Europe, even though it's mostly Asia). Note that it does not cover topographic information, so it is not enough for hiking.
