I travel to cities all over the world and I love to head out and explore during my stay. Using a phone with map and GPS makes it very easy to get around. Many map apps require constant data access, but I often don't have phone data access in many of the places I travel to.
I use City Maps 2Go to download entire city maps before I head out and I use it offline. The phone's GPS location still works great even without a data connection.
Here is an excerpt from City Maps 2Go website:
