There are hundreds of topographic GPS apps that help users figure out where they are and how to get to the places they want to go, but often times they require an active WiFi or data connection to work. Now thanks to Google, Google Maps will be accessible to users completely offline making it easy for anyone to get around.

When travelling in a new place or simply exploring new areas, it can sometimes be difficult to find the place you're looking for without having to log into and rack up your smartphone data to use your GPS. To overcome this fault, Google Maps has added a free, offline feature that allows Android users to search local businesses around them with free directions, voice prompts and maps fully accessible without any hidden fees.
