Having offline maps is one of the essentials while traveling these days. Not everyone has data network enabled on their smartphones when you’re in a different country. We have shown you how you can access maps offline with the most-used app – Google Maps, but that can not be 100% reliable. They recently updated their app to allow accessing (or downloading in cache) maps offline – just type “ok maps” in the search bar and it will ask you if you want to save the maps offline after zooming and spanning them.

For a lot of information on the maps, and offline, download MapsWithMe – a fantastic app that not only lets you save maps offline, but also give detailed information on sights-to-see and millions of points-of-interests.

The app comes in two versions – Pro version costs $4.99 and Lite version is free. The difference is that in Pro version you can search offline, bookmark places, rotate maps and share via social media and email.

Our recommendation is to try using the Lite version in your city and see how you feel about it, before spending on the Pro version. Our tests show us the pro version to be well the money spent because of the great feature like auto-follow mode, where the map automatically orients itself to the direction you are moving.
