Google Maps offline version, the initial download takes place when you have a
Wi-Fi connection, but after that, you"ll be able to use the map
anytime.
(Photo: Google)Nothing marks you like a tourist more than a giant
folding map.
Sure, a map is one of the best tools any traveler can have, but
finding one that works offline on your phone or tablet, with enough detail to
actually be useful, has long been a frustrating challenge.
Finally, Google is
rolling out its offline solution for Google Maps.
Just download an area of the
world to your phone, and when you find yourself in, say, rural Montana without
any service, you"ll still be able to see the same detail as if you had an
Internet connection, including directions, place information (like opening
hours and ratings), and the ability to search within the map.

Travel Gadgets You Didn"t Know You NeededThe offline idea has been floating
around Google for a while now.
The company previewed this pending feature back
in May, and even as early as 2012, you could save small areas in a map to look
at offline.
But until now the offline offerings weren"t that useful —
it was basically like a screengrab, without interactive abilities and not much
square mileage.

Need to search for a place to eat near your
morning walking tour? No problem.
Want to find a cocktail bar close to your
hotel? Done.
Just download your destination while you"re connected to Wi-Fi
(for instance, before you leave for your trip, or at the hotel), and then
you"ll be able to access it even when there"s no data in sight.
The only
differences will be that, because of space constraints, businesses will not
appear in your offline map with photos or user reviews — though they
will still have names, star ratings, and phone numbers.The new functionality
update is coming to Android first, starting today, and will soon be available
on iOS devices.WATCH: Save Your Data — Cheap Ways to Text and Call
