    What has to be done for caching map areas in Google Maps installed into Android device?

    My android device is taking too much time in loading Google Maps. It adds trouble if I need to locate the areas urgently. I read somewhere that pre-caching important areas on Maps can reduce the time taken for loading. How can I accomplish this?

    At first, launch the ‘Google Maps’ app on your device and hit the ‘Menu’ button. This will bring up a menu which holds the overall settings of ‘Google Maps’. Go to the right side of the menu and tap the ‘Make available offline’ option. You can then choose the area on the map to store locally. Once you finish this, press the ‘Done’ button available on the map screen. The selected maps area will then save into the ‘Offline’ section under ‘My Places’ option. From then on, you can locate these areas as offline so that it will load into the screen more quickly.
