Offline maps overview
With offline maps on Google Maps for Android, you can view a map even when you aren't connected to the Internet. To create an offline map, select and download a specific area on the map.
Benefits of offline maps
- No data plan? Download certain areas of Google Maps to your device for use in places without an Internet connection, or if you're outside wi-fi coverage on a phone without a data plan.
- Poor reception? Use offline maps in locations where you can’t get a good signal.
- Don’t have unlimited data? Save on costs associated with accessing Google Maps on a mobile network by using offline maps instead.
