    If you ever want to force offline mode, then yes, you can put your phone in airplane mode. To me, the benefit is that you can use the maps regularly, in online mode. But, if you travel to an area that is out of cellular coverage, or if you are somewhere where you are roaming, then your phone will still find destinations and navigate.

    The map has a small compass in the bottom right corner of the screen to display the position of north at all times.If you tap on it, it will change your screen display, the options of 3D view, 2D view, or north up, which will always keep north at the top of the screen.

    If you turn off your mobile internet connection, switch off Wi-Fi, then your phone uses downloaded maps, otherwise it uses online maps(though online navigation is much faster if you've downloaded offline maps)
