    You can download google maps as PDF. You can then convert your .dwg file to PDF too.
    https://youtu.be/aygNMI0NtTs .
    Now PDF files can be viewed by smartphones and there are autocad apps too in the play store.
    I think this will help you.
    And http://cad-earth.com this website claims that it can export google maps to CAD.
    Else take a screenshot of the map, then convert it into the DXF file.

    Or you can export the map details in KML format and then use it for conversions.

    The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.

    There are some apps which are used for conversions from Google map to auto CAD.
    One of them which is used by many engineers and architects is available at -www.plexearth.com

    This application is available for a trial period of 14 days and if you are satisfied then license for 1 year use at nominal prices can be availed.

    There are some tricks and approximate methods which can be seen at many auto CAD forums but their authenticity is questionable.

    Knowledge is power.
