Hi there,

Following some exploratory development of the mobile version to work offline, we have been confronted with a question for which we ask your help.

We intend to enter an address and that that address is shown in a map (like Google Maps) with the location of the inserted address. Our idea is to do this with application working offline, only using the GPS of the mobile phone. 

However, we did not achieve this without the use of Internet, only managing to translate GPS coordinates of the indicated address if we have an Internet connection.

Is there any way we can accomplish this without access to the Internet?

Thank you

Hi Diogo,

Currently the Google Maps Mobile, for addresses only works with a connection to the internet.

Because we need to translate the address you input to the corresponding coordinates and then show it on the map.

As for now, the component for this type of operation does not work without connectivity.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thank you,
