Mapview mobile data consumption

i am working with google maps v2 api in my applicaiton. i am using a mapview inside a fragment like this:

public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {


this.mapMV.getMapAsync(new OnMapReadyCallback() {
public void onMapReady(GoogleMap googleMap) {


everything works fine until i start moving in longer distance. during car ride google maps downloads cca 1 MB / min (for one day it is 300-400MB) vs. few kB in IOs version of this application.

Is there some way to reduce this huge data consumption?
