When you travel long distances you will often encounter areas that do not have reception. For many drivers that can be very worrisome especially if you are in need of directions. Fortunately, Google maps has created a way that you can use maps offline and still navigate yourself around. Whether you are in the desert orĀ  on a windy mountain road you do not have to worry about missing a turn or not being able to see where you are going.

The app provides the details of the map and allows you to save them as an offline record so you can go back and look at the map when you reach areas with bad cell phone reception. Unfortunately, they will not give you the step by step directions that online Google Maps provides.

It is always important to stay well prepared and knowing where you are going is one of the most vital parts of going on a road trip. It is smart to learn how to read a map so you can better navigate yourself around without the help of navigation on Google Maps.
