Route planning:

 

To plan a route in the app your phone needs to have an active internet connection, either via mobile data or WiFi. 

 

To import a GPX file in Route Mode you will also need an internet connection. 

 

However, you can import a GPX file in Compass Mode without an internet connection, and start navigating as usual. This is because Compass Mode only uses GPS info and doesn't need to plot a new route. 


Navigating:

 

When navigating a pre-planned journey or saved route, Velo 2 will work offline. 

 

That means that if you lose signal or want to save phone battery by using Airplane Mode, the Velo 2 will keep navigating you correctly along the route that you planned.

 

The only feature that will not work offline/without a data connection is re-routing.
