Transferring Offline Map data between the Ally app and GPS unit can be helpful when trying to navigate over a long tour.
Adding New Offline Maps
To start working with your mapping data, select Offline Maps in the Navigation section of the Ally app.
|At the top of the screen you can choose to download a new map region|
|When downloading new map regions in the app, you can see areas that have already been downloaded, so you can best choose where to select your next region to download.|
|After downloading, you can rename map tiles to better keep track of them in your list. You can even name them for days of a tour, like Coast Trip Day 1-3, Coast Trip Day 4-5, etc.|
Moving Maps Between the App and GPS
After an Offline Map is downloaded to the Ally app, it can be transferred to the GPS unit.
|When the map data is only available on the phone, it will only show a phone icon and the command to SEND TO GPS. To begin transfer of the map data to the GPS, just press SEND TO GPS and confirm the selection.|
|It's recommended to do this when not riding, because transfer times can be several minutes due to the limitations of Bluetooth Low Energy data transmission. While the file transferred to the GPS is smaller than the size shown for the app data, it is still a significant percentage.|
|When the map is transferred to the GPS, there will be a device icon underneath the phone icon (NOTE: Only visible while the GPS and app are connected)|
|To delete the maps from the GPS, long-press or swipe left on the map in the list and choose to delete from the GPS.|
You can continuously repeat this process as needed to keep relevant map data on your GPS device.
