Google Maps… offline! Yes, this is the best way to find the right street!
When I don’t have internet connection, I mean I have internet but I don’t have signal, I found this trick to avoid the problem!
I was messing around my apps and I discover that with google maps you can download the map that you need, and use it offline. This is a great thing, in particular when you’re traveling and you wanna save a lot of traffic data.
For me this is really a game changer because I’m traveling a lot and moving by car, obviously I don’t know the places… Thanks to the offline google maps, I solve a big problem for me: losing in the streets every time! 😀
Honestly I have to admit that sometimes wasn’t a problem lose a path at all… You know… It’s an easy way to discover some amazing places that probably I wouldn’t have seen. I hope this trick with google maps will be really useful for you as was (and it is) for me, to avoid extreme data charges from your provider.
I’ve made a video for you with a step-by-step guide to downloading the map. And if you like there’s also a guide with the pics here below. As you prefer.
Here below the steps to save an offline map with Google Maps on your mobile phone:
- On your phone or tablet, open Google Maps app.
- Sign in to Google Maps.
- At the bottom of the page, tap the name or address of the place in the white bar. I.e. in my case it’s Tenerife because I’m there right now.
- Click on the symbol with the 3 lines just near the name of the city.
- On the bar in the right of the app, click “offline maps”.
