>>956907 I generally consult google maps on my computer before I ride somewhere new, then use that info to make a cue sheet that I can consult while riding, or I just draw myself a very simple map with important streets and landmarks.
I try to get a paper map. Usually at a tourist information thing if there´s one. In europe there´s plenty of those. And most of the time they do have a usable city map you can take for free. Or i buy a hiking map in a store.
If that fails i use my smartphone, locus app and one of the open map sets listed in the app. Google maps is good too, especially with the integrated google search stuff when you are looking for something in particular. But google maps is a little bit too inaccurate for my taste, and too carcentric. Pedestrian or cycling infrastructure is often simply not shown on google maps, just roads.

Good for navigation, variety of dashboards. Entirely offline. Automatically records tracks in .gpx so you can do whatever you like with them (on Endomondo and/or garmin basecamp if you want to build up a database of your rides)
Also good for geocaching if that's a thing for you.
