    Google Maps™ and navigation

    Arrow left Xperia™ E1 support overview

    Use Google Maps™ to track your current location, view real-time traffic situations and receive detailed directions to your destination.

    When you view a map, you use data traffic to get an Internet connection, and data is transferred to your device. So it's a good idea to save a map and make it available offline before you take a trip. This way, you can avoid high roaming costs.

    Note

    The Google Maps™ application requires the use of an Internet connection when used online. You may incur data connection charges when you connect to the Internet from your device. Contact your network operator for more information. The Google Maps™ application may not be available in every market, country or region.
