In fairness, to mitigate signal issues you can use offline maps from various vendors. OSMAnd or Maps.me are particularly handy, but in a pinch there's HERE if you have the processing power.

Online maps are at best a so-so technology choice if you are going into the wilderness (as are electronic maps without a backup in general) but there are alternatives.
