Google Maps Now Works Offline

Posted by at 11:22 am on November 10, 2015

Google today said Maps can now be used without an active internet connection.

People can download maps for cities, counties, and even entire countries so routing and basic navigation tools will function when there’s a poor connection or no connection at all.

Offline maps support simple routing between points, but don’t support live traffic. Maps will only download regions via WiFi, and will automatically jump to a live version of Maps when it recognizes that there is an internet connection.

Google said offline support is rolling out to Android users first, and will eventually be available to iOS users.

Google Maps is free to download from the Play Store and iTunes App Store.
