This is only partially true.

Offline Google maps allows you to cache an area (open up maps, drag a box around the area you want to download) but it will only allow you to download 100mb worth of data per area. So you can't exactly precache a map of the entire state for example.

Offline Google maps are basically just an electronic version of a paper map.

You can get a third party app but it is extremely hit or miss (mostly miss).
