Save google map for offline use

I am doing a project on a google map. My requirement is to keep the google map online and use it offline. In Ios, they used the GMSTileURLConstructor. In the same, is there a possibility of saving the card. If yes, can you provide me with any ideas or link.

          GMSTileURLConstructor urls = ^(NSUInteger x, NSUInteger y, NSUInteger zoom) {
               NSString *strMap=[NSString      stringWithFormat:@"",(long)x,(long)y,(long)zoom];
               return [NSURL URLWithString:strMap];

    GMSURLTileLayer *layer=[GMSURLTileLayer tileLayerWithURLConstructor:urls];


Thanks in advance.

I have one solution. We can save the map as tiles using the UrlTileProvider. It stores tiles of maps based on zoom level and x and y axis area on your screen.

TileProvider tileProvider = new UrlTileProvider(256, 256) {
    public URL getTileUrl(int x, int y, int zoom) {

        String s = String.format(
                "http://my.image.server/images/%d%d%d.png", zoom, x, y);

        if (!checkTileExists(x, y, zoom)) {
            return null;

        try {
            return new URL(s);
        } catch (MalformedURLException e) {
            throw new AssertionError(e);

    private boolean checkTileExists(int x, int y, int zoom) {
        int minZoom = 12;
        int maxZoom = 16;

        if ((zoom < minZoom || zoom > maxZoom)) {
            return false;

        return true;


tileOverlay = map.addTileOverlay(new TileOverlayOptions()




Google Maps already does this, what you see will be cached
