On our mobile apps for Android and iOS you can set up an offline area so that you can access your maps when you don’t have an internet connection or phone signal. This process is best done when you have good 4G or preferably a good wifi connection as it uses quite a bit of data to download the map.

iOS

  1. Open the settings menu and tap 'Farm Settings'.
  2. Set up the area that you would like to be available offline. Tap 'Basemap Caching', this will take you to a screen that allows you to draw the area that you would like to be able to view when offline. You will probably want to draw around your whole farm and perhaps a little extra. Draw your area by tapping the map to add points and panning to move the map around. When you are happy with your area double tap or tap the ✔ to complete.
  3. When you are done tap 'Create'.
  4. Your offline area will download, this may take a little time depending on how big your area is and how fast your internet connection is. By default offline areas only download over Wi-Fi because they can be large files. You can change this by going back to the menu, tapping 'General Settings' -> 'Cache Areas' you can then choose to download only when connected to Wi-Fi or with Wi-Fi and mobile data.
  5. Once this is done you will be able view you farm's map without internet connection. If you decide you don't want it any more you can turn it off by tapping the offline map toggle below Basemap Caching.
