You can find offline mode in the settings of the app. By enabling offline mode, all map related features will work offline, even if the device is connected to the internet - convenient to prevent lots of data usage! We do recommend downloading an offline map, to make sure the app can be used normally.
What features does offline mode affect?
All map related features will work offline. If no offline map is installed, the feature will be unavailable. Map related features include:
- Visible maps
- Route calculations
By using offline mode, these features will not be available or not up-to-date:
- Arrival time that includes current traffic conditions
- Traffic data on the map and along the route
- Downloading offline maps
Features not related to maps will remain connected to the internet in offline mode. For example, synchronisation with your MyRoute-app account and support/information in the main menu keep working. This way, you can continue to download routes and upload your tracklogs even when offline mode is on.
How is offline mode different from using airplane mode?
When airplane mode is used, it is not possible for the app to connect to the internet. Other online features, such as synchronisation with your MyRoute-app account, will therefore also be unavailable. Additionally, less sensors will be available to detect your location, causing location detection to take longer or be less reliable.
