Tips for using the maps while being offline
The one thing that won't be available when your phone doesn't have data connection is the maps. However, here's a small trick to make sure you can use them when you're out exploring:
Before you go offline (for example, when you're at the airport waiting to board your plane):
- Make sure you open the app and load the map of the city/area where you will be offline. You can do this by panning and zooming the map, either from the 'Nearby' tab or the 'Add place' round button
- Make sure to zoom in all the way to the level you would like your phone memory to remember
- Close the app and get ready to go - we don't want you to miss your plane!
If you have the chance, try to do this every time you can get data connection/WiFi while you're traveling.
