Scale and compass
A distance scale appears at the top left corner of the map screen once a screen change is made. The compass appears in the top right corner of the map when the map is rotated to any direction but North up.

Speed and Heading
Your current speed and heading is shown in the box at the top of the screen. A negative number in either box indicates that the app has not yet determined direction and speed.

Using offshore and offline

If you want the map background to show when you are offline, you should open the app and move the screen view to the areas that you will wish to access when off shore. Zoom in on the areas and move the map view around when zoomed in. As long as you do not close the App, these map views will be “cached” by the app. When you go offshore or out of range of an internet connection, the app will display the icons with the map background visible.

If the app is first opened in the absence of an internet connection, the map background will not load. However, the markers will all be positioned correctly and the compass, heading and navigation features all function properly.
