Whale mAPP Disconnected


Being out on a boat, your biggest question might be “What if I lose connectivity?”  Whale mAPP is designed to work whether you have connection or not.  If you know you are going to be in a disconnected environment, you can download offline maps.

In And Out of Connectivity

When there is no connection, a popup will appear at the bottom of your screen letting you know.

 Until you regain connection, track line and observations will appear on gray canvas:
