Limitation You Need To Know

As, you know the method to use the google map offline, it's the benefit for us but it has some limitation. You cannot download a whole map or the whole country map. The location area you selected must not be too large. Don't try to save the map of whole USA. Try to select as much as small area.

Google maps require lots of storage space to save the detail information. So always use Wi-Fi before downloading the map. And last but not least, the downloaded maps only remain for 30 days and are automatically deleted after that.
