Iphone Offline Maps

I have already wasted almost whole day in creating offline maps for my iphone. So it was quite logical to waste remaining day in writing about ‘how to do it’.

Iphone has google maps by default and you need internet connection to use it. If you want to use maps without internet then one way to do this is to browse that map online once, Iphone will store it in cache so you can later use it without connecting to internet. But its not foolproof method. Second way is to use ‘Maps offline’ application. To use it your Iphone must be jailbroken.

‘Maps offline’ is an application which let you use google maps offline. It actually switches the iphone offline google map caches,which can be made by GMDL(Global Map Download Tool).

You can find a good tutorial here.

  1. hey.. can u help me… i cant get my gdml to work.. i downloaded the maps.. after i hit process.. it gets stuck on 98% n shows an error.. still i continue.. but the result i get is that my 2files which i need to ssh on the phone(the cache) they r just 2kb.. well that’s not good…it means there is a problem… still i continue.. every thing works smooth.. i even ssh the files in the specified folder.. but it wont work.. do u know where i can get a pre worked file.. like the one you’ve put up for mumbai??

  2. Hi Mrinal,
    I have written a new post for step by step creation of Maps using GMDL. Please have a look at that.
    If you followed the method and still there is a problem then most probably you selected quite a big area on the map and during download your internet connection is disrupted. Try to optimize the size.

    If you are unable to create maps even after going thro’ my new post then please tell me which area you want a map for. I will create the map for you and will upload the files.
    Don’t forget to tell your Iphone firmware version.

  3. Hi Rajiv,

    I am trying to download maps of various areas in mumbai & pune but when i click on download map the application just stops responding and stays at a blank screen for hours. Have tried this a few times but everytime the application just gets stuck on a blank screen..probably its taking a lot of time to create the pieces of the map. It would be really great if you could create maps of andheri/malad/bandra/colaba/etc from Mumbai & camp/chandni chowk area of pune and mail them to me @ meetidnani@gmail.com.

    Thanks a Lot
