I have created a new map in which I pinned (with markers) various places for my vacation. I would like to find out how to save it for offline use. How to do so?

Edit: as it turns out, you need to use app "Google maps engine" in order to access your maps.

If you just need the image and don't need the underlying data, you can take a screen grab and print it out.

If you need all the data, you could download Google Earth, which I think still provides the offline functionality you're looking for. http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html

To get everything on your device, you can make yourself a map with multiple destinations, then use the gear icon in the lower right corner of Maps to share the link to yourself. From there, you'll get a URL that you can send to your device.

  • I need to save those places to my android device with information (addresses, etc.). Image is not enough.

There's an option within that little gear icon in the lower right corner called Share and embed map.

There you can copy and paste the full URL, pins and everything included.
