Google anyway has started reportedly been storing maps as vectors, not as massive images, so whenever it chooses to go offline, it will have no trouble due to size of the stored data.
Google Maps may be getting ready to go offline, a website has said which cited an update earlier this year that allows phones to remember routes as well as surrounding areas, as a possible indication.
According to the Dutch website 'All About Phones', the idea behind the update is even if the users lose their coverage for some time, they do not feel lost wherever they are. However, one cannot enter new destination in the Google Maps during the offline mode.
Since the turn by turn navigation of Ovi Maps is coming on Windows Phone 7, Google Maps needs to pull something out of its hat to compete. Google Maps has been a unique selling proposition for Android platform, which may not be used by the users on a daily basis, but feels great to have when they are in a new place.
It's not really clear how strong the offline abilities of Google Maps would be, or how much data the phone would be allowed to hold. The turn by turn navigation system of Google has any way been quality, and the fact that it's free helps. The addition of offline navigation may prove to be the icing on the cake.
