Google’s latest update to Maps is all about easing some of the pain points of international travel.

Two features that previously leaked out are now making their way to everyone. You can now flip on a Wi-Fi only mode to ensure you don’t rack up any charges on a restrictive data plan. Additionally, you’re able to store offline maps to an SD card if you have a phone that supports this feature.

You can now flip on a Wi-Fi only mode or save maps data to an SD card.

Google says that it’s expanding the ride services available in other countries as well. Uber is everywhere, but you can also choose from GO-JEK in Indonesia and Grab in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. Services from Gett, Hailo, and MyTaxi are also popping up inside of Ireland, Poland, Italy, Austria, Russia, and Israel.

To get in on the latest features, make sure you have the most recent version of Google Maps from the Play Store.

The impact on you: While there are good ways to find cheap data while traveling, it always helps to do some advance planning by saving Maps offline. If you have a hefty SD card, it’s wise to save a big batch of your map so you don’t have to worry about knowing where you are.
