Google Maps update lets you save maps for offline viewing.

Google has published a very interesting and useful update to its Maps app for Android that lets you save maps to your device for offline viewing. This is a treat that will help you save money, especially if you travel. All you need to do is connect to a WiFi spot, start Maps on your phone. Tap the context menu at the far right of the menu bar and select Make available offline. Navigate to the location you want on the map. While you do so, notice that the app gives you the estimated size of the map you're about to download. I had Port Louis, the capital city of Mauritius, in file 0.1MB file. Tap Done and the map is downloaded to your phone for viewing at your convenience. Enjoy.

Download Maps on Google Play.
