Save locations for offline use
- Search for a location.
- Select the white info log at the bottom and scroll down. You'll see "Save map to use offline" at the bottom.
- Google Maps will prompt you with the option "Save this map?" Go ahead and save it.
- You'll see the "Map saved" confirmation.
- Name the offline map.
- To see the offline map, go to your profile.
The maximum size for the area you can download is 50km x 50km. If you try to save an area bigger than that, you'll be asked to zoom in on a smaller area.
If you're already on a map that you want to save, you can save it without searching for a place.
- Move the map to the area you want to save.
- Touch inside the search box at the top, and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
- Touch Save map to use offline.
You'll delete your saved offline maps if you clear your application data on your device. But you won't delete your saved offline maps if you sign out of the Google Maps app, delete your Search History, or delete your Maps history.
To make sure that your map has the most up-to-date information, your saved maps need to be updated at least once every 30 days. If you don’t update them, they’ll expire and be removed from your saved maps list.
Since you cannot search an offline map, save several smaller maps covering the same area. Name the map after the area.
