Test Results of Google Offline Named Map List (after 30 days)

Discussion in 'iPad' started by Liam O'Connor, Jun 14, 2014.

  1. By way of update, the 30 days (29 for iOS devices) has 'expired'
    on my offline Google Maps using the month-old GUI that allows
    one to create a named list of maps.

    The (minor) bad news is that there didn't seem to be any warning
    that the maps were expiring and/or expired after the 29/30 days.

    However (nice) good news is that, even after they expired, the
    named list remained. Therefore it was *easy* to update the
    Google offline maps (for another 29/30) days.

    The (inconvenient) bad news is that you have to update each one
    manually (which, for a score of offline maps, is a pain).

    But, the (inconsistent?) good news is that, even for the maps
    I didn't update, they didn't seem to delete them.

    I'm not wholly positive on that because I started updating
    before I realized I should test the offline capability by
    turning off the cellular & wifi, but, I *think* the offline
    maps, while having expired, actually remained.

    I'll have to wait again, until all the maps expire (so that
    I won't have overlapping map edges, which you can't tell
    with Google offline maps), in order to be sure on that
    last one.

    If anyone knows for sure if the map remains after the 29/30
    days, let us know.
