  1. First of all you have to sign in with your google account to access this offline feature.
  2. When you are logged in, then type ‘OK Maps’ in the search box and hit the search button. A popup dialog box will appear at the top of the maps with asking ‘Save this map’ with a Save Button on your screen (with this button you can save this map for offline use).
  3. At this point you can zoom in or zoom out on this map and move the map to select the area which you want to save. You can zoom out on the map to select a big area and the entire area will be downloaded which seen on screen. After download the map you can zoom in on the map to see the individual areas, streets .
  4. After you have selected the area which you want to access it offline, just hit the “Save” button which seen in the below on this map. A pop up dialog box will appear with asking to give a name to the downloaded map, give a name to your map then click on the “Save” button the map will be downloaded.

Here is certain limitation with this offline feature is when you zoom out so far to download a larger area then, there is an error saying with the map can’t be saved because the area is too large. We are able to save the entire Delhi area, but when we tried to save the entire NCR (National Capital Region)then the error is saying with this area is too large to save. But nothing can stop you to save multiple maps to save a larger area.

Another limitation is the offline maps will saved for 30days only. But you can save it again after 30days.
