    You could download Gaia Topo. It is mobile optimized and takes up less space on your device, even at the maximum zoom level.

    I typically find that the default zoom level when downloading a map is sufficient. Usually, the default is around 15, but it can vary depending on the map.

    I have an android tablet..  I have noticed that the map resolution  for the same map when view online and offline is much different.  The online resolution can be at least 5 zoom levels better.

    Sorry for the trouble.

    The resolution should be the same if the map is fully downloaded.  I have emailed you directly to troubleshoot this issue.

    I have a similar issue. Android tablet. Using the NatGeo Trails Illustrated because of the large forest road call outs. The area I download is not overly large. I have done it with map download and zoom to 15 and an area download set to high resolution. In both cases after the download, turn on airplane mode. Cleared cache. Went to saved, selected download and show on map. When I zoom in, it is blurry. Need some help.
