Whether you're headed to an overaseas adventure in Europe or up to the mountains to escape civilization, you don't need to leave behind the convenience of Google Maps. It's now pretty simple to download an offline map for those areas in the middle of nowhere.

Just head to the Settings > Offline areas and hit the plus button and pan your way through the globe to find the area you want to be available when you don't have a data connection.

Google Maps can also do this automatically for your home areas so your searches will be faster for the areas you're routinely looking at. This obviously can eat up a bunch of space from your device storage, so be sure to consider how much you want to download.
