    Google Maps 5 offline?

    I read on this site HERE that maps caches your maps so it won't need a network connection? Anyone know if it does it automatically or do you have to set an option in settings?

    And it doesn't cache much. You'd need to go over your route at the level of detail you need first to cache the appropriate pages before you leave if you expect to be offline the whole time. There are some apps in the market that will do this for you automatically. Also, you should know that Google seems to lose your location if it doesn't have a data connection. Don't ask me why but the GPS doesn't seem to be able to determine where you are on the map without a data connection. You end up getting a 2000ft margin of error.
