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

  1. 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.
  2. Poor reception? Use offline maps in locations where you can’t get a good signal.
  3. Don’t have unlimited data? Save on costs associated with accessing Google Maps on a mobile network by using offline maps instead.
