… Special Presentation …

10:00 – 11:00 (July 16, 2022)

In July, John Krout will present  Offline Maps for Portable Devices.

Today’s map apps on phones and tablets mostly rely on cell tower access to download maps for your use. As a result, the apps cannot show you maps with no cell towers. Learn why offline maps work where cell towers are absent, where to obtain free offline maps on the Web, configure map apps to access offline maps, and select an offline map for use in a map app. Four apps are featured in this presentation: the Locus Map app and the c:geo app for Android, Maps.me, and Google Maps for iOS and Android. 

To connect to John’s presentation on July 16th, e-mail us beginning July 15th at SIGrequests@ntpcug.org with “Special Presentation” in the Subject line.
