I'd like to have a software that allows me to download and view (OpenStreetMap-) maps of the whole world or a certain area I chose to download. Ideally, it should behave just like the map-website but be usable even without internet connection. Do you know such an app?


Try GMapCatcher https://code.google.com/p/gmapcatcher/. It has support for downloading maps from various providers, including OpenStreetMaps. I found it to be quite fast even when browsing online, as compared to the web version of google maps.

It has lots of options (https://code.google.com/p/gmapcatcher/wiki/User_Guide). I have not tested all of them, but it seems to be promising.

  • I've found GMapCatcher's offline mode to be pretty unusable, and the program doesn't run exactly stable. Apart from that, its features are pretty lame compared to Marble, but that's a bit of a matter of taste. – leftaroundabout Feb 22 '19 at 0:54

Try Marble: it allows to download a certain quantity of maps (a certain number of zoom levels from a starting level located anywhere) for offline use.


You can use Microsoft solutions (Streets & Tips/Autoroute) with Wine.

  • Not with an ARM processor you can't. – WitchCraft Aug 2 '16 at 17:58
