- What is the range of the offline map tiles?
- The maps will download for the entire length of the route and about a screen’s width from the route. This will give you enough map to get back on track should you miss a turn or want to explore a bit.
- Can I just download an entire state/country?
- Not at this time. Map tiles are linked to the route itself.
- How do I delete an Offline Map?
- When viewing your Offline Library, tap Remove.
- How much data will this use?
- The data usage in downloading a map will vary depending on the length and geographic coverage of a route. A typical 60 mile route will take about 20MB of space. With a broadband connection speed, the download should only take a couple of minutes, but make sure to wait until it says “Downloaded” before starting navigation or activating Airplane Mode.
- How do I update downloaded maps?
- Viewing the updated route on your device while you are connect to cellular or wifi will automatically update the route that you have downloaded.
