Edited by Thor, Rushell, Dougie
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to download maps directly from Microsoft when using a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Then swipe the lock screen up to enter the home screen.
Swipe down from the top to bring up the notifications panel.
Press "All Settings" on the upper right side of the screen.
Swipe across the screen from right to left to bring up the "applications" settings.
Tap on "maps".
It is not necessary to be connected to the internet to use any downloaded maps. Since they will be downloaded directly to your phone, you can use them offline and when you are physically roaming. There are other map applications that can be downloaded, which may offer something different than the Microsoft map application.
Press "download maps", located toward the lower middle of the screen.
The program will bring up all of the maps that are currently available.
To get a new map, press the plus sign at the bottom of the screen.
This will bring up a list of continents.
Choose a continent by tapping on it.
Next, choose a country from the list.
A message will appear that states, "Downloading these maps will take a few minutes. If you leave this page, the download will pause, but you can finish downloading it when you come back."
Tap the "download" button at the bottom left of the screen.
The map will begin downloading. A blue bar indicating download progress will appear just below the country name.
When the download is finished, tap the country name to open that map.
A message will appear that says, "Map is ready. Your map is downloaded and ready to go, so you can get information about this area even when you don't have a data connection. Just open any map or navigation app to see it in action.
Tap the "OK" button to continue.
Exit the "downloaded maps" screen and return to the home screen by tapping on the second icon at the bottom of the screen.
At the home screen, find and tap on the "Maps" tile.
Zoom out on the current map by pinching your fingers together on the screen.
Then find the location for the map you downloaded.
Alternatively, search for the location by pressing the magnifying glass at the bottom of the screen.
It is the icon on the far right.
Type the location name in the search box at the top of the screen.
When the screen is centered on the location, zoom in by pinching and pulling your fingers apart on the screen.
Since we have downloaded the map, it will give us quite a lot of information about it.
This concludes our tutorial on how to download maps when using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
This pertains specifically to maps from the phone's built-in map program and does not refer to other map applications. I hope that this has been helpful for you.
