How to Use Google Maps Offline

There are often times when in a new city you may not have internet access. Navigation then becomes quite delicate, even potentially dangerous. There’s an easy way to avoid this and ensure you can get around town easily, even without mobile data or Wi-Fi. Here’s how.

Step 1 – On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Maps app.


Step 2 – Make sure you are connected to the internet and logged into the app.

Step 3 – Type the name of the place you want to save offline.

Step 4 – At the bottom tap on the name or address of the place then it will appear.

Step 5 – In the upper right corner, click on Settings and select “Download Offline Map”

You can zoom to the general area you want to access offline. The app also shows you how much storage space it will take up on your phone.

To view maps when you don’t have internet, go to your user profile, tap on offline maps and here they are!

You may not be able to download offline maps in some countries or regions due to contractual limitations or language support issues. So it is better to check this in advance.
