google maps

Postby veleriya » Tue Jun 14 2011, 10:07

How to use google maps on my android without wifi? I have an htc desire hd and although it comes with locations, I would like to use google maps but without the use of data. Can I just download the map of my location with google maps or is it constantly in need of wifi? Thanks.

In short no. You can get another app that will cache part of a area but it will never have the map fully loaded on your phone with google maps.

If you just need a small area (small is not definied and is limited by your storage) you can use software like oziexplorer (there is a android version in the market) and get the maps from "mobile atlas creator". Its a simple to use program. You can choose between several type of maps and detaillevel!

Before you try, whole australia is not possible. You would need a lot GB of storage (depends on the detaillevel)!
