Default Offline maps

Hello

I tried offline maps . I have read 10 different websites with instructions, but i cant see the button on my LG G2. Is there a trick that i am missing?
Thanks

Its tricky. You search for the area you want to save the map for.. So in Maps, type in "Kentucky" for example . then tap the info bar and you'll see "save map for use offline"

Try pressing the search bar then swipe to the bottom of the list that drops down. There should be written "save for offline maps" or sth else

This is how you save an offline map:

Go to the area you want to save (even the zoom should be adjusted based on how much you want to save).

Tap the search bar and write "ok maps" and press search.

Feel the magic.
