Offline navigation (offline mode)

In offline mode, you can search for places and set driving routes without an internet connection (for example, at an underground parking lot or outside the city).

If the mobile signal becomes weak or disappears when setting the route, Yandex.Maps automatically turns on offline mode, sets the route (without taking into account traffic, speed cameras and road events) and guides you on the offline map.

If the mobile signal becomes weak or disappears when moving along the route, Yandex.Maps continues guiding you along the route. If you turn away from the route, the offline mode is automatically enabled. Yandex.Maps sets a new route and guides you on the offline map.

Download the maps for the offline mode beforehand. To have maps that are always up-to-date, turn on automatic updates (they happen about once a month).

When the internet connection is restored, the app checks if there is a faster route and suggests switching to it.
