Google has made offline map service possible. Now we can use this even if there is no internet service or our data package is expired. We can save some predefined directions and then use it as we are on the trip. I think this is a good user friendly initiative by Google. The facility is already available for Android users, and Google is planning to extend this to iOS users in future. But we need to carefully plan our trip and save the directions in the phone before starting the trip. It has an expiry period too after that it will be no more visible in our phone. How do you find this new initiative from Google?
