Google Maps has an update and one of the added features is sharing directions. More info. can be found here:
Suppose why they never update the app to allow offline navigation nor do they allow total country map saves. I use Nokia Here Maps because it does do the above, but I miss the gmaps GUI.
I suppose I am looking for a reason as to if there is some kind of money Google would lose by allowing offline navigation and whole map caching. I know I love the app, but hate the data it uses.
