    Additonal info.  From Sunday until now, the app has been open on the screen.  I am running the most current version of Gaia.  I updated on Sunday before starting the downloads.  Then updated Gaia again yesterday after pausing the downloads for a few minutes.

    Update:  I realized there was no way I was going to get the maps I wanted before next Thursday - anticipated departure date.  I deleted Gaia from tablet and reinstalled.  Gonna try this again.

    I am going to try and initiate downloads one at a time and see if that makes any difference.  I will try and wait until one is complete before starting the next one.

    Downloading one map source at a time for any particular area seems to have made a huge difference in download speed.  I am actually making some progress.  It still isn't quite as fast as i would like.....but it is definitely manageable.

    So if you are having download problems, try downloading one map type at a time.

     

    After a few more days of downloading maps (one at a time), I am pleased to report I am making good progress on getting the maps I want.

    I am also having a ton of trouble downloading offline maps on Android. It crawls. And you can't see progress. Doing one at a time seems to help. But then it wants to go back and download earlier maps and stalls again. Argh!

    I'm sorry you are having an issue downloading your offline maps.

    Can you let me know which map layers you are downloading and the areas?

    To view the status of your downloads follow the steps in this article: https://help.gaiagps.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000646008-View-the-Status-of-Offline-Map-Downloads.

    I'm also seeing incredibly slow downloads ... for a 180MB map, it's coming down at around 15-20kb/s I'd guess?  Were the speed improvements for that were made for iOS ever implemented on the Android side?

    The iOS updates that boosted download speeds is still being processed for the Android version of Gaia GPS and unfortunately, I don't have an ETA at this time on when it will be shipped.
