Whether you are visiting a new city or country or you want to find out the fastest way to a location in your city, Google Maps is the solution. You enter it, put there the address you want to go to and voila. But it has some issues. If you don’t have a 3G connection or a constant Wi-Fi connection, you can’t see the route anymore.

To save a map for offline use, there are two methods that you can use.
For the first one, enter Google Maps, tap in the location and wait until it appear on your screen. After that, type “OK Maps” in the search bar. This will start a download of the map in your cache.
For the second method, after the map you want pops on your screen, tap on the search box and scroll down to the last option. There you will find an option that downloads your map in your cache
An offline map doesn’t occupy much space, it can be up to 15 MB. Be aware at your cache. If you download to many maps, you will fill up your cache and the application won’t work anymore. There are some limitations that you must take in consideration. If you save a wide map, there won’t be much information for you in offline mode.When you open Google Maps, it will open the last map and you won’t search for another one until you reach a internet connection.
So it would help you? We think that offline maps from Google Maps can be a big help if you limit yourself to a narrow area. Would you try it?
