Google Maps started to work offline with turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation. The feature only works on Android right now. By installing v9.17 or higher version of Google Maps on your device, you must do the following to be able to use Google Maps Offline.
How to Use Google Maps Offline on Android
Click the button to download Google Maps:- Download Google Maps
1 – Search for a region, for example, the name of a neighborhood or city. After this, slide your finger up to the screen and notice that a new menu appears. There, you can see the download option.
2 – Select the area you want to download to your device (limit is the file size which can be up to 2.5 GB). Just do a pincer movement with the fingers on the screen to enlarge or decrease the download area.
3 – Then simply place the file name and start using it. The maps are available for 30 days. After that, you need to repeat the process.
Google’s idea was not to reduce the consumption of mobile Internet, but rather improve the experience of using Maps on Android, covering any sign of flashes, for example, when you are driving in a tunnel. But you can use this map download function to save a few megabytes in monthly data package. However this way is not the best, since google may still prefer fetching maps online. You need to turn off your mobile data or put the smartphone in airplane mode.
