A fresh update is rolling out to unofficial Google Maps app gMaps, bringing the addition of a pretty handy feature: offline maps. As noted by the gMaps team, version 3.5 of the app will allow you to download maps to be used for navigation without an internet connection.
To use the feature, you can head to the settings menu and tap the "Offline Mode" option to download offline maps. From there, head to the Layers panel and tap the new "Offline" button to start navigating while disconnected from the internet.
In addition, the gMaps team notes that version 3.5 includes a couple of improvements to navigation:
- If you deviated from the route planning, the application will instantly react and rebuild the route, according to your motion path
- We noticed that the route steps during trip are not changing. This is fixed now.
The update should be available for gMap Pro users now. If you use the free version of gMaps, on the other hand, the offline maps update will be available on April 29.
