    We are going night hiking tomorrow night and the lake we will be hiking (in the hoosier national forest) sits low and loses data signal. I had downloaded Locus over the winter in prep for my spring/summer hikes but it appears that somewhere along the way, the ability to load google maps was taken away.

    So, my question is, how can I cache my aerial views of the lake and trail and have it to look at while hiking? I need no navigation, just the ability to see where I'm at in relation to the lake, spillway, and various tributaries.

    Thanks.

    Do a Google search for

    android google maps offline

    and see if it helps.

    Also, be aware that GPS usage consume more battery power.

    You're really better served using a GPS nav app that locally stores its data. You can get Google Maps to cache the data but you'll have to search for details.

    If you know your waypoints you can try BSC Walk About, it does not store maps, but will allow you to use a grid view to navigate to your destination and does not need any data at all to work.
