How many Google maps can I download to my iPad?

For instance, could I download the maps of New York, Chicago and Los Angeles and access them offline?

Please help me understand what you mean when you say "Google maps doesn't really work that way"

I can save a given map by taping "OK Maps" in the search bar. Can I save only one map at a time or can I save more than one?

I did read your link. My understanding is that your article talks about the previous version of Google Maps for Android where you had to choose " Make available offline".

In Google Maps for iOS you have to type OK Maps to save a map offline (I think it is the same with the newest version for Android)

Your article says that you can save 6 different maps to a device. Is it the same for iOS devices?

It means it doesn't work that way. Google maps doesn't allow for massive map downloads. The intent is for neighborhood level stuff. Of which you can do six.

You're absolutely right. Thanks for catching that.

Yes, it's the same for iOS. Here's the link for iOS: View maps offline (iOS)
Here's a recent article that gives a bit more info: http://www.wired.com/2014/02/offline-google-maps/

If I can download 6 maps to my iPad how can I manage them?

For instance, I have downloaded the map of Beijing where I am on vacation right now. Once I leave I will not need this map anymore. How can I delete it? I would not want it to use disc space uselessly.

Is there anywhere I can see a list of the maps I have downloaded and how much space they use?

I think when you have no internet connection, it shows you which maps you have available.

To delete all of them, try this.
