Google is adding offline navigation to Google Maps in oder to ensure you never get stranded regardless if you have a connection or not. Users can download entire areas onto their smartphone and get turn-by-turn directions. Starting today on Android you can download maps for entire cities, counties, and countries simply by searching for them, then selecting the “Download” option on the place sheet. Once you map is downloaded, Maps will go into offline mode automatically when it detects that your data connection is spotty. You can also go into the “Offline Areas” section and tap the “+” button. Don’t worry iPhone users, Google has said that this feature is coming soon to iOS. What do you think of Google maps finally getting offline navigation ? Anyone up for a camping trip ?
