A Travel Saver - Google maps with no signal

Ever been traveling through a city no one has ever heard of and lose signal?

Google maps navigation has always been a favorite of mine because of the OFFLINE maps feature. Recently with their update, the option under settings has been removed! But you can still get around this by using their installed back door - *hush hush* *top secret*.

1. On your android phone open Navigation or Google Maps.

2. Zoom in to the city of choice (area you want to make offline).

3. Type into the search bar "ok maps".

4. ENJOY! I would recommend doing this all over WiFi, as some of the areas can take a while.

Just zoom around on the map saving the cities you most frequent and say goodbye to 4G/3G usage as you travel.
