Google Maps Upgrade Will Enable You Get Directions When You’re Offline

If you’ve ever gotten lost in Lagos thanks to a passerby’s vague description of “turn left after the first roundabout then turn right after the second left turning”, you’ll appreciate how much of a lifesaver Google Maps is.

Helping people get around towns is no mean feat and it is one which the Google Maps apps manages to do every other day- perhaps it’s a bit of an unsung hero?

Google has announced a software upgrade which will enable Google Maps to provide direction even when you’re offline! There’s even better news, Google is going to roll out its upgrade in countries where data subscription plans still cost an arm and a leg. ¨

I don’t know about you but it sure sounds like Nigeria has something to be grateful for!
