If you are traveling or in a new location and need a map, you can download maps on Windows 11 for offline use. Here’s how to do it.
On Windows 11, you can download maps on your PC for offline use. This is a helpful feature that will provide you with access to maps when you’re in a location with limited or no internet connectivity. The offline maps give your turn-by-turn directions, as well as provide information on establishments nearby, such as restaurants, gas stations, or hospitals.
Of course, you want to get your map ahead of time before you travel. Once you download the map(s), you can use the maps as if they were online (sans a few features).
