If you are planning on travelling to a new location where it is not sure you will have an internet connection, you may want to download a map that you can consult offline. This article will show you how to download a map from Google Maps and navigate offline.
Firstly, you will need to open the Google Maps app on your mobile device.
Make sure that you are connected to the internet and signed into Google Maps with your google account. If you do not already have an account, you can create one here (note - the steps are same for creating a Gmail account).
Search for a place, for example Paris.
At the bottom of the page, enter the name or address of your desired location and then select Download. If you have searched for a specific place, tap More (three vertical dots) and then select download offline map and then download.
You will now be able to access the map offline and navigate freely.
