I don't leave for my trip until September, but I want to be familiar with using Google Maps. In particular I wanted to see how it works to use it offline. There are lots of videos on YouTube that explain how to use it. Well I will be using public transportation in Europe, so I decided to test it out using my towns public transportation.
And it was pretty disappointing! Google Maps has to have data in order to be used for public transportation! That's right, you can't use the offline feature for public transportation. It does work if you are on foot or in a car. This makes me re-think my phone situation. I really will have to have a data plan to get around. I suppose that I can load up the route while I have wi-fi and then use it strictly as a map with no alerts to get on or off buses.
Has anyone else used Google Maps on public transit?
