You can check the progress of your offline map download through the Saved menu to verify that the downloads were successful.
1. Open the Saved menu
2. Tap filter button in the top right corner (the button might say All, Tracks, Waypoints, etc.)
3. Select "Downloads"
4. The active downloads will have a spinning wheel and the yellow bar designates the progress of the download.
These instructions worked for me. Thank you. But I must say, from a user interface standpoint, this was done badly in the app and should be improved. This method of getting to the progress indication is obscure and non-obvious, not intuitive. I would expect the "Saved" -> "All" view to also show the progress percentage, not just that there's an ongoing download that's not yet complete. And I would also expect that in the "Downloading" notification in the android status bar. Having to dig to get to this obscure end point just to get a progress percentage indication is poor design. I would never have found it without searching for these instructions.
This is quite the obscure way to view download progress. Why not show the download progress in the notification's content text? Or show the progress when clicking on a 'saved' map that is still being downloaded? That would be way more intuitive.
It's also confusing that while a map is currently being downloaded, you are still given the option to 'Resume download.'
I was a bit confused to have to select "Saved -> Downloads" but understand why it is catagorized separately. I had to google my issue to find this solution but I'd be satisfied with a simple pop up in the app describing where to find the download progress. Ideally, clicking the android notification would take me to the downloads sub-menu, or there would be a button to click within the detail view for the saved map that would take me to the downloads menu.
Instructions for checking map downloads does not match what appears on my android phone screen.
