Not sure which version it was, but I used to use Google Maps Off-line, and cache wouldn't expire (if I'm correct). Due to lobby or any other rotten (commercial) reasons, Google Maps Off-line is not available anymore in many countries, like (some) Brazil (cities), as an example.

So, I'm looking at the latest Google Maps version which allows us to download the maps again, and use it offline.
Or maybe a way to cache it without the need of scrolling it manually, at several zoom levels...
I don't know - Something that could help on browsing offline Google Maps.

Could someone help on this?
And also point me (us) to a location where to get and install it?

Edit:
Cuuuute! I'll give it a try:

Any other inputs or ideas would be nice as well!

Is 6.14.1 the latest available?
I've found some 6.14.3 around, but I'm not sure if someone here has really tried it, successfully. [[[ DONE, and it's okay: ]]]

Note 1: I have successfully installed the 6.14.3 version above, but I'm not sure if it works as it should due to the fact I'm looking at DOWNLOADING LOCAL maps currently not available anymore, that WAS available to download until some jerks decide we need to keep paying to access it from other sources; but I still couldn't. So, if you want to install and try the Google Maps 6.14.3 (Mod/Nav) and try it, get it above, and please post a feedback.

I just did this:
1. In Titanium Backup, selected Maps and cleared cache and wiped data.
2. I did the same with Street View, and uninstalled both.
3. Made a reboot.
4. Renamed the APK to Maps.apk (don't know why, but did)
5. Allowed unknown sources
6. Installed the APK

Note 2: I have successfully installed the 6.14.1 version (which may be the same as above links), and it worked as well. But NO solution for what I'm looking for.

Bottom note: Then, you'll probably like the latest Google Maps 6.14.3 (offline Navigation Mod) :)


And, how can I download a map that is not available for downloading anymore?
Again, it used to be and I used to do it...
And many cities in Brazil are still downloadable, but not those that interest me.
