Download and save the map of Yorkshire on your Google Maps app, no need for data connection then. Or pick up an old Nokia N8 and use Nokia's maps, which can all be saved on the phone.

How do I get the map?


Google maps:

Old method:

Do all this while connected to wifi

seach for Yorkshire

App finds it and centers display on Yorkshire, zoom until you have the area you want displayed

Go back to the search box, clear it and type okay maps

The map will be downloaded and saved,

New method: (latest version of Google maps)

Nokia maps:

on your Nokia [N8] run Map Loader and download the map of the country of your choice- UK, or England is 250MB
