Where's the good old paper map when you're stuck on Mount Everest 🤦

It's worrying since a lot of users to heavily depend on GPS so it's always good to have some sort of backup.

I'm sure Waze/Google Maps has the offline feature where it'll still tell you where to go regardless of connection status.
