How to use Google Maps offline
Navigating with Google Maps over a mobile data connection can rack up a ton of data usage over time. Most of Google Maps data use is incurred when initially searching for the destination and charting a course. Fortunately, Google Maps for iOS includes a feature that lets you download entire regions of the map for offline use later.
By downloading your routes over a Wi-Fi connection, you can save big on the amount of mobile data used during navigation. Turn-by-turn navigation, location searches and establishment info can all be accessed without a data connection.
Knowing how to use Google Maps offline also makes sure you have a consistent experience through areas with low reception. Taking a wrong turn due to a network delay will be a thing of the past.
