How to check the availability of locally stored data?


When at least one on-demand map is displayed, you can check the availability of locally stored data for this map using different ways.


Using the "Use only local storage" option


This option will prevent the application to download any new map data, and force it to only use the local storage. You can then be sure that all displayed areas are available for offline use.

  • Click on the “Maps & layers menu, and select “Options to display more options;
  • Check the “Use only local storage option, and click on the “Maps & layers menu again to hide the sub-menu.

When displaying an area with no stored data available, the application will display an “Area not stored… message to let you know that this option has been activated.

Using the "Show local storage coverage" option


This option activates the display of on-map indicators showing the availability of locally stored data, available for offline use:

  • For each group of squares, the first square (on the top) indicates the status of the following zoomed detail level, the second one indicates the status of the next zoomed level, etc.;
  • A green square indicates that this area is stored;
  • A red square indicates that this area is not stored.

The indicators only show the status of the lower most map.

To display the coverage indicators:

  • Click on the “Maps & layers menu, and select “Options to display more options;
  • Check the “Show local storage coverage option, and click on the “Maps & layers menu again to hide the sub-menu.
