I have encountered a significant difference in using XS versus my older iPhone 6. What Gaia Support is telling me makes ABSOLUTELY no sense based upon use of my iPhone 6.
Previously, I went out into the field (whether 1 mile from home or 100), turned on Gaia, found my location, hit record, and set out...with a detailed topo map. I DID NOT download any map areas before leaving home. No matter where I was, the map was there (in detail).
I'm doing the same with my XS, except that the map only partially downloads with only minimal detail. It finds my location and tracks my movement, but on a screen with virtually no contour lines.
Gaia support says this is because I need to download a map of the area I am hiking in before leaving home.
Again, I have NEVER had to do this with the iPhone 6.
What gives? Anybody know?
