Offline maps

Offline maps are stored permanently on your device, so you can use them without an internet connection. With Orca, offline maps update automatically to make sure you always have the most recent chart data. The complete Orca chart catalog is included in your subscription, so you can download the charts you need no matter where you are going.

Download offline charts

Open the Main menu by pressing the button on the top left side of the map. Press Download Offline Maps to enter the mode to download maps. You will now see an overview map of your current location. Orca automatically downloads areas around your current location when you first start the system, and areas that have already been downloaded and are ready for offline use are shown in green.

Pan the map to a new location, and a number of grey areas will appear at the center of the screen. To select another area, center the map at a new location and the grey areas will move to that area.

Press on Download to begin downloading the selected areas.

The selected areas will turn blue and show a progress indicator. You can download multiple cells at a time. Once the download is complete, the cell will turn green.

Update offline maps

The offline charts are refreshed automatically every two weeks whenever you are connected to the Internet.

You can also trigger a manual refresh by going to the main menu and pressing on Settings. Press on Map and select Refresh map data.

Delete offline maps

Should you want to delete offline maps from your device, open the Main Menu > Settings > Map and tap on Delete offline data.
