In Google maps:
  • Tap the three-bar menu at top left
  • Tap "Offline Maps"
  • Tap "Select your own map"
  • Scroll/pan/zoom to make the rectangle cover the area where you are going
  • Tap "Download"
  • Repeat for multiple areas
Now Google maps will work when there is no cell service for the areas you've downloaded. I use an inexpensive Android tablet for navigation in the RV. It only has WiFi so I do the above procedure before heading out.
