Offline navigation (offline mode)

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

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

If the mobile signal becomes weak or disappears when travelling along the route, Yandex.Maps continues to guide you. If you turn off the route, offline mode automatically switches on. Yandex.Maps sets a new route and guides you on the offline map.

Download maps for offline mode beforehand. To be sure your maps are always up-to-date, enable 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.
