Google maps help?
So, came back to android after some time with an iphone. I use google maps quite a bit, but have a few things I am confused about. Forst off, is there a way to cache maps on my phone? I am in Italy and do quite a bit of driving/sightseeing and sometimes lose signal. Second, is there a way to stop the screen from timing out when I am using google maps? I can't imagine that google never thought of a way to do this other than having to go into system settings each and every time I open/close maps in order to turn on and off the screen time out. Third, I know google maps keeps north oriented up on the phone by default. Is there a way to have the direction I am headed in up rather than north? I keep maps open pretty much whenever I drive, whether I use the directions or just keep the map open for the traffic. Traffic here in Italy is crazy, and traffic rules here are treated as suggestions rather than laws so I try to avoid traffic jams whenever possible, so I keep mpas open on my phone without using navigation. Thanks for the help. I use a Nexus 5.
