The title is a bit misleading. No internet connection. No maps. Unless you download the maps you need while you have an internet connection, and then use the high resolution maps images when you do not have an internet connection. How?
Save Maps For Later
Maps are a big deal and most of us appreciate that Apple brought Maps from iOS to OS X. The Mac’s Maps app works well and using Maps on a larger screen is a delight.
What happens if you’re traveling, don’t have an internet connection, but want to check a local map?
Enter Map Snapshot, an inexpensive Mac utility which lets you download larger, highly detailed, maps images with high resolution.
Download the maps you need, save them on your Mac, use them when there’s not an internet connection. Map Snapshot looks and works much like Apple’s built-in Maps app on the Mac.
Find the geographic location you want, set the map to Standard, Hybrid, or Satellite, zoom in or out as needed, click the Save button.
It’s as if the Mac’s Maps app had a Save button.
What you get is a higher resolution, highly detailed map that can be viewed when you do not have an internet connection. In some cases, the map image can be 100 times the size of the viewing window of the map on your Mac.
All that detail can come in handy. Maps can be printed to larger posters, edited, backed up and saved, used within a flyer or advertisement for directions, and, importantly, used when the Mac does not have an internet connection.
Not bad for a few bucks.
