Offline maps

You can download offline maps from the Polar Flow web service and transfer them to your watch using a computer. The maps available in the Flow web service include detailed maps of countries and regions, as well as basic maps of continents and large areas. Basic maps of North America and Europe are pre-installed on your watch. Offline maps are available for Grit X2 Pro and Vantage V3 users.

Using offline maps during training

During training, offline maps are available as a full-screen map navigation training view. The training view is enabled by default for most outdoor sport profiles and can be added to any sport profile that uses GPS.

After starting your session, scroll to the map navigation training view with the UP/DOWN buttons. You can use the map either on its own (1) or with other navigation features, including Route Guidance (2), Back to Start (3) and Track back (4). You can set the features on from the map navigation menu.

 

In the map navigation training view,

  • the location pointer (arrow head) displays your current location and heading. If heading information is not available, your location is indicated with a blue dot. Calibrate the compass via the map navigation menu to show your location with heading.
  • breadcrumbs appear as a red line, showing the path you have taken so far.
  • the blue line shows the route you have chosen for the training session, and arrows along the route indicate the direction of the route.
  • the four cardinal directions shown around the map help you navigate.
  • the map scale helps you identify the distance between places.

Press OK in the map navigation view to open the menu. The following options are displayed in the menu.

Pan and zoom

Activate the pan and zoom mode. Use the UP (+) and DOWN (-) buttons to adjust the view, and pan by swiping. Press OK to accept the new zoom level and exit the pan and zoom mode. Your location on the map is centered automatically. Note that if you exit the pan and zoom mode by pressing BACK, the map view will return to the previous zoom level.

Your location

View the coordinates of your current location.

Routes

In routes, you'll find the routes that you have saved as favorites in the analysis view of your training session in the Flow web service, and synced to your watch with the Polar Flow app. Komoot and Strava routes are also found here. Choose the route from the list, and then choose where you want to start the route: Start point (original direction), Mid-route (original direction), End point to reverse direction or Mid-route to reverse direction.

Back to start

Turn on the Back to Start (Via beeline) or Track back (Via same route) feature.

Map orientation

Choose North up to display the map with north always at the top of the screen.

Choose Track up to display your direction of travel at the top of the screen. When your direction changes, the map rotates accordingly.

Track up stops working with furthest zoom levels, and the map orientation automatically changes to North up. The map orientation returns to Track up when you choose a close enough zoom level. The map orientation also changes to North up when the pan and zoom mode is enabled.

Compass calibration

Follow the instructions on the display to manually calibrate the compass.

Perform the calibration while wearing the watch on your wrist.

Current maps

View current maps and check the space used. You can also change the map or set it to be chosen automatically based on your location.

In the Flow web service:

  1. Click your name/profile photo in the upper right corner. Go to Sport Profiles, and choose edit on the sport profile you wish to add it to.
  2. Choose Related to device.
  3. Choose Vantage V3 > Training views > Add new > Fullscreen > Map navigation and save.
  4. Sync the settings to your watch.

In the Flow mobile app:

  1. Go to the main menu, and choose Sport profiles.
  2. Choose a sport profile and tap Edit to open the sport profile settings.
  3. If you have more than one device in your Flow account, make sure V3 is chosen at the top of the page. You can change the device by swiping.
  4. Scroll down to Training views, and under Additional views, choose the Map navigation view.
  5. When you're ready, tap Done.
  6. Sync the settings to your watch.

How can I mark a lap in the map navigation view?

You can mark a lap manually by slapping the display firmly with your fingers. Turn the function on in the sport profile settings in the Polar Flow app or web service.

How can I set the display to stay on during a training session?

You can find the Display always on setting from the quick menu in pre-training mode and during a session when paused. With always on chosen the watch display will be illuminated throughout your training session.

  1. In pre-training mode, press the LIGHT button or tap the settings icon to enter the quick menu. During training: Press the BACK button to pause your session, and then press the LIGHT button to enter the quick menu.
  2. Choose Display always on, and choose Off, For this session only or For this sport.

If you choose For this session only, the setting will default back to Off after you finish your training session. If you choose For this sport, the setting will also apply in future training sessions with this sport.

Please note that the always on setting will drain your battery much faster than the default setting, and may also impact the lifespan of your display. The default settings are optimized for battery life and display longevity.

I have set the map orientation to Track up, but sometimes the orientation changes to North up. Why?

Track up stops working with furthest zoom levels, and the map orientation automatically changes to North up. The map orientation returns to Track up when you choose a close enough zoom level. The map orientation also changes to North up when the pan and zoom mode is enabled.

Map is not shown in the navigation view. Why?

You may be outside the coverage area of the map.

  • Make sure you have a map downloaded and transferred to your watch that covers your area.

You may have the wrong map activated.

  • Press OK in the map navigation view to open the map navigation menu. Choose Current maps, and then change the map or set it to be chosen automatically based on your location.

Using offline maps outside of training

You can access offline maps outside of training through the Navigation view. From the watch face, swipe left or right until you reach it, then tap the display to open the details. Tap the map shown in the details to open the map navigation view.

In the map navigation view,

  • the location pointer (arrow head) displays your current location and heading. If heading information is not available, your location is indicated with a blue dot. Calibrate the compass via the map navigation menu to show your location with heading.
  • the four cardinal directions shown around the map help you navigate.
  • the map scale helps you identify the distance between places.

Use the UP (+) and DOWN (-) buttons to adjust the view, and pan by swiping.

Press OK to open the map navigation menu where you will find the following options:

  • Your location: View the coordinates of your current location.
  • Recenter: Recenter the map to your current location.
  • Compass calibration: Follow the instructions on the display to manually calibrate the compass. Perform the calibration while wearing the watch on your wrist.
  • Current maps: View current maps and check the space used. You can also change the map or set it to be chosen automatically based on your location.

Download and transfer maps to your watch

To download and transfer maps to your watch, you need a computer, and your watch must be connected to your Flow account. First, download the map file from the Polar Flow web service, and then transfer it to the watch on your computer using File Explorer (Windows) or Android File Transfer and Finder (Mac).

In the Flow web service, you can access the map download page by clicking your name/profile photo in the upper right corner and choosing Download maps. You can also use the direct link: flow.polar.com/maps.

You can download new maps or download the maps on your watch again to update them. You can choose maps that are smaller and more detailed, or larger and more basic.

  • Detailed maps (Countries and regions) show for example smaller trails and contour lines.

  • Basic maps (Continents and large areas) show for example main roads and tracks. Basic European and North American maps are pre-installed on your watch.

When you click on a region on the map, you will see the size of the map and when it was last updated. To download the map, click on the Download button.

Plug your watch into your computer with the custom cable that came in the box. Make sure that the cable snaps into place.

Drag the downloaded map file from the Downloads folder to the Storage folder on your watch.

Syncing data with FlowSync at the same time slows down the transfer speed. For faster transfer speed, it is recommended to transfer map files to the watch when sync is not running or when Flowsync is closed.

Once the map file is copied to your watch's storage folder, you can access the map during training via the map navigation view.

You can delete unnecessary maps from the storage folder when the watch is connected to your computer. Click on the map file with the right mouse button and choose Delete.

To transfer map files to your watch, you need to install Android File Transfer (https://www.android.com/filetransfer/) on your Mac. Mac OS 10.7 or above is required for the proper operation of Android File Transfer.

After installing Android File Transfer:

  • Plug your watch into your computer with the custom cable that came in the box. Make sure that the cable snaps into place.
  • Open Android File Transfer. On the Android File Transfer window you can see the storage folder on your watch.
  • Go to Finder and open the Downloads folder.
  • Drag the downloaded map file from the Downloads folder to the storage folder on your watch.

Syncing data with FlowSync at the same time slows down the transfer speed. For faster transfer speed, it is recommended to transfer map files to the watch when sync is not running or when Flowsync is closed.

Once the map file is copied to your watch's storage folder, you can access the map during training via the map navigation view.

You can delete unnecessary maps from the storage folder when the watch is connected to your computer. Click on the map file with the right mouse button and choose Delete.

I have installed Android File Transfer on my Mac, but I keep getting the error “Could not connect to the device". What should I do?

  1. Closing the Preview app if it's open (even if it runs in the background) might help resolve the issue. Close Preview by going up to the Preview menu in the Menu Bar and choosing Quit Preview.
  2. Restart your watch. On your watch, press the BACK button, and go to Settings > General settings > About your watch. Scroll all the way down and choose Restart your watch.
  3. Restart your Mac.
