Off-Line Map App
Our smartphones have replaced traditional physical maps and guide books with popular alternatives like Google Maps, but the utility becomes non-existent when there’s no cell signal.
If you happen to remember to download a portion of Google Maps that you know you’ll be using, you may be OK, but that’s not generally how life happens.
For anyone that often finds themselves off the grid but still in need of navigation, there’s an app called Maps.Me that you may want to give a try.
It’s similar to a traditional GPS device in that you can download an entire country or region to your device before you head out.
It will function a bit differently so if you’re going to rely on it for critical navigation, it’s best to take it for a test run for a bit beforehand.
