This fills a second map store (cache) of maps to ensure you'll have it on the field, even with no network connection. This provisional cache adds to the regular automatic one. No need to display every map you need manually.
* French coastal maps OPTION. Lasts one year.
* French aviation OACI map OPTION. Lasts one year.
All above options are available for ANNUAl subscription only and each adds a separate maps storage (cache) of 40 000 tiles (≈1 Go).
