  • How do I use the Maps?
    Currently, all maps shown on our site are made using the Google Maps service. You can choose to open them in a new window, and you can add them to your maps, when you're logged into your Google account. If you have the Google Maps app installed on your smartphone, then it opens in the app (if it is chosen as the default application. Otherwise, it can be opened in the mobile browser, such as Chrome or Firefox). You can save them for later reference, and also use the app's Offline features by downloading the areas and include it in your saved offline locations to access it later during your trip. View the Google Maps Help for more details.
