On my previous trip to China I received a gift of an 8" Windows tablet, and this is still my only portable device. I have no smartphone as of yet.
At that time the most useful app on the device was the Maps app, which is apparently based on Nokia's Here maps. What made it good was that it had offline downloadable maps which were actually really good.
Annoyingly, Microsoft has deleted these offline maps, which makes the device far less useful and has left me bereft of maps until such time as I may choose to put in some research and put aside some travel funds, and invest in a smartphone.
But in the meantime is there another way to get offline maps on my Windows devices that is not blocked by or interfered with by China, the Great Firewall, or Microsoft itself?
