How to offline save Google Maps

With the new layout of Google Maps (for Android and iOS) it can be a bit hard to find old features of the app such as offline downloading. Here's how to do it

This works on both iPhone and Android:

  1. Zoom in and out to the desired saving area. If I wanted the whole of New York, then I'd zoom out so I could see he whole of New York
  2. Click in the location search box
  3. Type "ok maps"
And that's it. Your maps will download so you can use them later without a data connection. Really good if you're overseas or in the bush.
