The Map Selection icon allows you to select a map to display. The maps are divided into Local Maps and All Maps.
Local maps are the maps that are applicable to your current GPS location, whereas All Maps are the complete map catalogue.
The download state for the maps is also displayed:
|means the complete map including all areas it covers is saved on your device.
|denotes that select parts of the map are saved on your device. An example will be the Mega charts which cover whole countries, or even the whole world. Sections of the maps can be downloaded by tapping on the map under Settings > Data Downloads.
|means no part of the map is saved locally on your device. You may still be able to view these maps if you are currently connected to data. The parts of the map you are viewing will be downloaded as you view them, but not saved to your device. If you wish to view a Not Saved map when not connected to data (e.g. in flight), download and save the map to your device.
The Mega VFR map contained a seamless integration from WAC scale (1:1000,000) through VNC (1:500,000) to VTC (1:250,000), and VTC inserts (1:125:000). The most appropriate chart for the area and zoom level is automatically drawn. We recommend that you select the Mega VFR map for most VFR flight as a default.
Note that VTCs contain useful information in the margins which cannot be shown on these integrated charts. Hence the VTCs can be separately downloaded and stored within the Text >Documentation folder (in the Text pane). Pilots flying within the major metropolitan terminal areas are encouraged to download the relevant VTC and read the border notes , especially if planning to fly the designated Visual Routes depicted on these charts.
The EnRoute Lo chart is a seamless integration of ERC-Lo charts which are at a variety of scales, and the Terminal Area Charts (TACs) which are also at a variety of scales.
