Switch Comic: Offline Maps #SwitchComics

404868_10151307644826523_396205834_nHere’s another Switch comic, this time showing off the immense benefit of having offline maps in your pocket on the go, to save on those data charges. Although if I recall correctly Google Maps now supports offline mapping and navigation? Or was it just route planning without turn by turn instructions?

Either way this comic just reminded me to download some maps for my upcoming “trip” ;)

-Side Note: Why aren’t these switch comics being used as little bus station adverts (or those plastic stands on the islands on main streets?) You could put a bunch of them after each other on the same road and essentially advertise every strong point of Lumias in within a stoplight.

    Google Maps only supports limited caching, if I recall correctly, from GSMArena’s tests, them maximum area is the about size of New York City.
