For those who may not know, Google Maps has an offline feature. It’s not all that useful (it doesn’t allow saved locations to be searched nor does it provide directions/navigation – it’s essentially a paper map on a small screen), but it’s still a thing that may be useful to someone at some point. Assuming you think ahead and actually save a map of the location in which you may need for it to be offline, of course.
