    Offline Maps


    Where can I find downloaded offline maps, so that I can copy them over to my new laptop for traveling instead of having to download all over again ?

    Would simple copying works?

    Thanks for any advice.

    That's all well and good, sml156, but the OP is asking where the offline maps are stored so that he can just copy the files from one computer to the other without having to download them again on the new computer.

    I don't know if this will help or not, but if you have a USB flash drive inserted you can initially store the maps to it. I have no idea if you can then take that USB drive and use it in another computer.
