Google Maps officially goes offline, if you have an Android smartphone…

“Offline Maps: Wish you had a map when your device was offline? With offline maps, you can save and use certain maps when you’re not connected to the Internet. If you have GPS on the device, the blue dot will still work without a data connection so you know where you are. Whether you’re traveling the world or underground, offline maps can help you navigate the offline world.”

The UK Google Maps will also shortly be adding cycle routes.
