Common Questions and Troubleshooting
Testing offline downloads by putting your device in airplane mode
Putting your device in airplane mode is not a foolproof way of testing your offline downloads due to how the app caches map tiles. Tiles are the individual images that compose a digital map. When you are online, the app caches commonly viewed tiles to make the map load faster. Cached tiles display while offline. When you put your phone in airplane mode, you won't be able to tell if you are looking at cached or downloaded tiles. The cached tiles are cleared out periodically, so make sure you check your downloads with the steps above.
