Do you have a data plan with your wireless service?

Expert:  Joel Kalman replied 8 months ago.

If you have a data plan, you may be able to download your Google maps over the cellular network, but I have found that it is usually not possible when I am in an unfamiliar area to get the maps that way. However, I use Goohat it works is to download the Google maps in the car all the time with driving directions. The way that it works for me is to enter the destination before I leave home and plan the trip while I am on wifi. Then your smartphone will have the data that it needs to display your route.
