Google Maps is a web mapping service developed by Google. It offers satellite imagery, street maps, 360° panoramic views of streets (Street View), real-time traffic conditions (Google Traffic), and route planning for traveling by foot, car, bicycle (in beta), or public transportation.
One needs a good and stable internet connection for the Maps to work smoothly. However, in our country we often face bandwidth issues which results in a patchy internet connection which often leaves us in the middle of nowhere. But, the navigation app has a solution for that as well. So, if you are packing up for a road trip or are travelling to another city, then you can use the offline Maps feature offered by Google.
The feature enables you to download the map of any area so that you use it without a working internet connection. So, here is the guide to download the Google Maps offline both for Android .
Download a map to use offline on Android device
Step 1: On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Maps app.
Step 2: Make sure you’re connected to the internet and signed in to Google Maps.
Step 3: Search for a place, like Udaipur.
Step 4: At the bottom, tap the name or address of the place and then Download. If you searched for a place like a restaurant, tap More and then Download offline map.
After you download a map, use the Google Maps app just like you normally would. If your Internet connection is slow or absent, Google Maps will use your offline maps to give you directions.
