On your phone, open Google Maps
Search for the location, 44.784, -115.370
Click on the car on the bottom right, to get directions (you might show a bus or walking icon)
Replace “My Location” with 44.648, -115.670
Then you should see “via Johnson Creek Rd 2hr 16min” .. click that.
Now you should see the route from Warm Lake to the Tungsten Mine.
Click the “X” next to the route stuff at the top. This will leave a blank map with a pin at the Tungsten Mine.
Then, tap the search box, click the “x”, and…
Then, either type “ok maps” in the box, or scroll to the bottom of the list and click “Save map to use offline”.
Then, click “Save”
That’s it. Now, all of the roads and features that are between the Tungsten Mine and Warm Lake are stored offline on your phone. This means that you can use your phone GPS while you are on the Labor Day campout, even with no cellular service.
You can save your routes too. If you look up a route while you have Cellular service, you can pull it up from history.
The offline maps simply stores the map image. It’s not as good as a stand alone GPS device, but if you want to know where you are, you can look at your phone and follow the trails to a spot. If you don’t have off-line maps, you’ll just get a pointer in the middle of a green screen.
Me too. With a high of 70 in Cascade for Sat and Sun, I figure it’s going to be a little chilly on the trail at the high altitudes. After all, a warm family is a happy family.
