Once a map is downloaded where do you find it on the phone?

I downloaded an area of the map of where I live.
I went to the Astro file manager, clicked on the folder called Download, anyway, I can figure out where the downloaded map is!

You're referring to offline Maps?

You access it from within the Maps app.

It's not a picture file of a map. It's all of the data that Maps would need to make Maps work, including streets, addresses, landmarks, etc.

So you go back to the Maps app, go to My Places, and go to the Offline tab. (Although I'm not even sure you need to do that.) Just go to that city/area and start using Maps as usual.
