Data availability

Data and cost

Google Maps for mobile requires an active data connection at all times. Before you download it, we recommend that you contact your mobile service provider to find out more about the data plans it offers. An unlimited data plan is strongly recommended as continuous Maps usage will use a lot of data.

Note: While Google Maps for mobile is unsupported for use with a WiFi (wireless network) connection alone, it may work for certain devices. We strongly encourage having a mobile data plan with your mobile service provider in order to use Google Maps on your phone.
