Have you ever wanted to download a map for when you don’t have signal or just simply want to conserve your battery by turning cell service off. Here’s a simple way to do just that.
Many people may not be aware that you can download Google maps for use when you don’t have signal.
Be aware you will have to refresh the map after a period of time since the data will automatically delete after a month, unless you save it again.
Open your Google Maps App and scroll, pinch and zoom to the area you want to download and the 3 hash marks Menu.
Then Click the “Offline Maps” Menu item.
Select Your Own Map
The Map will download
If you select the downloaded map you can navigate and search the area.
Be aware that the map will expire and not all search functions work properly.
