After traveling to a few different countries this year I found the best option for not having a working phone but still needing to use my maps function. It's a great FREE App called City Maps 2Go Offline Maps. It's offered for both Apple and Android. It allows you to download all major city maps before you get there. Once it's downloaded to your phone, you can view a working GPS that shows where you are, pin your hotel/attractions before you get there so you know your plan of travel. It shows you how far away something is from where you are standing. There is also a working search bar, just type in the attraction/place/bar/street that you want and it will find it for you! I'm in love with the app and it saves us from buying data in a new country.
