There are times when there is no Wi-Fi around you and your data pack has already given up. Getting directions from Google Maps at this time is not available because they only work with internet connection. That is, unless you’ve saved your maps for offline access. And in this post we’ll show you exactly how to do that.
How to use Google Maps offline mode on iOS, Android
With this offline feature, you can store large map areas for guidance, even when you’re stuck without Internet connection.
This feature is both available on iOS and Android. Before we dive into the process, take a moment to visit the App Store on your iOS device, or the Play store on your Android device and check for any available updates for Google Maps.

Google Maps will then show the area you search for, with the name being displayed along the bottom of the screen. Tap on the name. Next, go on the Menu(three-dot) icon in the top-right corner of your screen.

You’ll then be then required to adjust the area to be saved. That is, panning and zooming around, making sure to pay attention to the size limit alert along the top of the screen. If the mapped area is deemed to large, you’ll need to zoom in and repeat the process for the area left out. Once you’re satisfied, tap on Save. You can also give the offline map a name.
Now to open your saved maps, slide you the menu draw and select My Places from the list of options. Scroll to the bottom , where you should find any offline maps still stored on your device.
Keep in mind that any saved maps will only remain on your device for 30 days.
