Iphone - Offline Use Maps


Recommended Posts

I have the GC app. I've created a pocket query and downloaded it. When I go to click on "SAVE FOR OFFLINE USE" I have 3 map options : 1) N/A (Google Maps) 2) Topo Maps and 3) N/A (Google Maps). Only the Topo Map will allow me to turn it on. Is it possible to download the Google Map option?


What else should I try? Thanks!

You can't download the Google maps. However you can switch to OpenStreetMap street maps and those can be saved for offline use. Unfortunately there is no alternate to Google for the satellite maps, so those can't be saved offline.


Go to the start screen of the app, tap "Menu" at the upper left, then "Settings". Just a little down the page are the Map Sources options. Switch "Street" to "OpenStreetMap.org".


Now you'll be able to save the street maps for offline use.
