    If you have a cal topo source downloaded for offline use, what will happen?

    Hey @rescuejg,

    Nothing will happen to your downloaded maps from CalTopo sources. You can continue using offline maps from CalTopo sources without any interruption throughout this switch over.

    The only exception to this rule is with the Slope Angle Shading source.

    If you have downloads of Slope Angle Shading, you will receive a notification in the app that an update is available.

    The update notification will appear as a green banner on the Saved tab.

    Accepting the update will update your map downloads with the new source.

    If you have any other questions, please contact support.

    Another reason to not delete data from a device when turning sync off.  I would hate to lose my CalTopo USGS maps - they have the most info of all the USGS maps on  them.  Which of the many topos is most similar?  Also - is there a way fo individual users to license the maps?  Thanks,

    We are creating our own version of the USGS Topo, from the same data as the CalTopo source. It should be available before January so you don't need to worry about interrupted access to this source. Additionally, you will still keep your downloaded maps from USGS Caltopo. Anything you have downloaded previously, you will still have, even after January. That's true for any source that we may discontinue in the future. Just make sure you've synced so your offline maps are backed up to the Gaia Cloud.

    Some other sources that are similar that may interest you are Gaia Topo and USFS 2016

    If you have any further questions, please contact Support here.

    CalTopo's Shaded Relief layer has stopped working for me. If this doesn't get rectified soon, I may have to part ways with Gaia. ESRI's Shaded Relief is mostly useless, and I have relied heavily on the one by CalTopo for years. Will a new dark shaded relief map be added? Thanks.

    CalTopo's layer will no longer be available as they have ended their third-party license agreement.  Can you please contact Support here and give some more information on why the ESRI layer is not meeting your needs?  I'll compile your feedback and pass it on to the rest of the team.
