Download Google Map On Android - Using 'Ok Maps'
The latest version of the Google Maps allow you to save the map locally but there's one more way to do that - and that is using the command 'Ok Maps'. All you need to do is hover over the area that you want to save offline locally and then in the search box type the words Ok Maps. Tap the search icon and the application will cache the entire visible map on your android phone or tablet. You will see a message that says "pre-loading" maps or an error message "the on-screen area map is too large, zoom in first". If you see the error message, simply zoom in and tap on the search button one more time. This time it should work.
The bigger downside of this method is that you cannot 'manage' your offline maps just like you could in the older version of the Google Maps application. But the new method will definitely allow you to do all of that.
I hope you find this tip useful.

I tried downloading the map of my city and it worked fine. But I only downloaded the map of the places I visit quite often (not useful, but just for the trial). Do try downloading the map of entire city and please let us know if it works fine. I'm curious to know what's the overall size of the map. I'm sure with the kind of information - the map of the metros would be bulky.CSK AUTODefinitely useful sir(Kaustubh Katdare) and i am waiting for offline maps for major cities in India such as mumbai,chennai,delhi,calcutta.
Google maps are undoubtedly good bad they aren't the best. At least when I have to find out an accurate address including zip code I use this website https://worldpostalcode.com/zip-code-map . It's pretty useful and user-friendly. There is information about all addresses in all countries around the globe.
