Google Maps users be pleased about. The handsome mobile phone app now works offline — and its working well. When you’re on outside areas without mobile signal, or if you are using your mobile phone on “airplane mode” to protect battery time and use up considerably less data, the google map feature still works wonderfully per Global Traveler testing.

This function is available on both Android and iOS.
