I am a great fan of the Google Maps OFFLINE feature. I have most of the local areas downloaded on my Android 7.0 ASUS ZenPad 10.1″ and it works a treat. Before I go anywhere new I make sure to download the pertinent maps. Never had any problems.

So, when I got myself a 128GB Google Pixel 2 for Christmas I set out to do the same thing — i.e., download the New Hampshire, Mass & Maine maps. It just kept on FAILING. Didn’t tell me why. Just that “Download Failed to Complete“. Tried it 8 times — and then decided that this wasn’t a temporary server glitch.

Did a Google. Found the above

That is fine other than the fact that you can’t install a SD card on a Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL!

So, you are screwed.

What I find MOST amazing is that Google had not foreseen this problem.

I spoke twice with the Pixel support folks. They had not heard of it and did NOT know what to do.

Tried contacting Maps support — but with NO luck.new-hampshire, alton,

This is unbecoming of Google.

So, a HEADS UP.
