Download Google Maps For Android Offline Use

The latest Google Maps update for Android smartphones is set to be our Summer traveling savior. Google Maps can now be downloaded for offline viewing, perfect for those times when a phone loses a data signal or while abroad and without a foreign data plan.

While you still have a WiFi connection, look up the Google Places page of your desired location (Empire State Building, Eiffel Tower, etc.), click "More" for the menu and then select "Download map area." A 10-mile radius map of the selected location will download to your mobile device. While the map will give you all the basics like landmark and street names when offline, an Internet connection is necessary for searching for directions within the map. Still, it's an invaluable resource when exploring new cities this Summer.
