    Followed the steps exactly as written below(vvv) in an earlier post, unfortunately it does not solve my problem today. The phone is online on LTE and WiFi, everything else works, but this.
    The device (SG-S5; Android v6.0.1) has been completely reset twice, updated only Google: -drive, -maps, -playstore, and the offline map's downloads reach 4% at the first try, and then hangs there at 4% forever. The error message is: Couldn't download.
    If I delete the unfinished download and then retry, the downloads do not even leave 0%. I tried everything that I could research online, but this offline map function just does not work. Please let me know how to fix this. Thanks!
