How To Use Google Maps Offline Mode On iPhone And iPad – Tech Times

The main advantage that Google Maps enjoys over Apple’s native iOS Maps is its better support system, especially when going offline. This is probably the most important feature when you are going for a long overdue vacation, or passing through a zone which has weak or no Internet access. Having the offline option for Google Maps can be quite handy in such situations and enabling the functionality can be a saving grace.

Key Takeaways:

  • The main advantage that Google Maps enjoys over Apple’s native iOS Maps is its better support system, especially when going offline.
  • “If you’re going where the Internet is slow, mobile data is expensive, or you can’t get online, you can save an area from Google Maps to your phone or tablet and use it when you’re offline,” says Google Maps.
  • The multiple-route suggestion feature cannot be used in the offline mode. Google Maps will suggest the best possible route, keeping in mind the traffic conditions and you will be compelled to follow that route. Rare areas cannot be accessed in the offline mode and saved locations must be updated once every 30 days.
