We often need to use navigation apps on our phones to help us get to the places we want to go to. However, not everyone wants to buy a data pack just for a single trip. Fortunately, both Google Maps and Apple Maps offer you a way to navigate to a pre-selected destination with access to the internet.
Google Maps is one of the most extensive navigation apps in existence. Therefore, it goes without saying that the offline feature on this app is extensive too. It lets you select a large area and save it offline, so that you can access it anytime to navigate. In order to do that, you need to follow these steps:
Now you can easily navigate anywhere within this area without the need for an internet connection. You won’t receive traffic information, but everything else will work like it normally does.
Apple Maps doesn’t have an offline mode like Google, but you can still navigate any one particular route with ease. In order to use this feature you need to follow these steps:
As you can see, this option is not as flexible as using Google Maps, but if you don’t have Google Maps installed on your phone, then it is a good alternative to save yourself from getting lost.
