I connect my iPhone to an ethernet adapter in order to speed updates or restore backups. You can see when the ethernet connection is being used because the wifi icon goes away from the main screen. This is a trick I learned at an apple store when they wanted to get my phone restored before the store closed so they could go home on time. The difference in speed is considerable.
Unfortunately, Gaia GPS won’t download maps in that mode. I have to be connected via wifi for it to work.
