Google Maps 5.7 for Android offline maps feature

Google Maps 5.7 for Android offline maps feature – Google released a new version of its Google Maps for Android today, and tucked inside the Labs section is a new, offline maps feature that lets you download map data to the phone. This allows you to access the maps when you are in an area without a data connection, or if you are out of the country and want to avoid roaming data charges. More info:

    What sucks about offline maps is the limitation of having 5 maps! Seriously!? that’s not even enough to put in a holiday car route. It wouldn’t suck if the map size didn’t had any limitations so you could download an entire country. downloading the offline maps also takes ages and removing them also takes a long time? WTF google? just give us the option to download all maps in a region/ planned route and then you have added a USEFULL feature

    Doesn’t matter, The new version of google maps have removed it, so if you are now not in America, its useless.

    to download the maps you will need internet. After they are downloaded on your phone, you dont need it.

    Shame, still cannot beat Nokia’s OVI Map (symbian). You can download maps by country names. Very easy with only a few clicks!
