    Seven offline map apps to travel and never get lost even if you stay offline

    Google Maps

    Google Maps could not fail to be the first on the list. It comes pre-installed on all phones and is certainly one of the most complete. From the side menu you can choose an area, download it and thus consult it through the cache without having to be connected.

    Maps.ME

    Maps.ME is another Android classic. In this case we have an application with a more casual design but in this case we also have the details on the traffic and the main attractions. Their maps are based on OpenStretMaps, so the database will be sufficient for most.
