I'm seeing it hasn't been updated since 6/25 on Android. Trying to join the beta program doesn't do anything on my end (though I still have it as I sideloaded the app).

OK that’s not right. Should be updated as of yesterday. Should be the normal live build.

I cleared my Google play cache, Uninstalled the app, and re-installed via Google play, and we're all good now. It even shows I'm in the beta program in Google play.

Can you let me know what happens so I can tell my developers?
Screenshot wasn't attaching from the app here. Attaching via the browser. This shows the error I'm seeing. I have no downloaded maps and I have space on my phone.

Quick nitpick, if no maps are downloaded offline, and you click Offline Maps this pop up will still appear even if you’re Expedition tier. Text should maybe be changed to “No Offline Maps available” instead. Goes away after you download your first map though so not an actual problem, just something I noticed.

It's there now. But offline downloads aren't working for me. I've tried zooming in and out. Also, on Android it would be nice to select save location so I can use my SD card.
Hey Brian,

Zooming in and out has no affect. The download button downloads a 50X50 Mile square around the center of the screen. There could be a download size limit. Can you give me GPS coordinates of the map center that hangs so I can test it locally? You can do that by long-pressing the map location and tapping the blue gps coords to copy

Thank you! We will get that cleaned up.

Another bug in the app is all of the replies quoting another comment have overlapping text. It's showing in the app only, not on any web browser (phone or pc). I've attached the screenshot.

On Android how do you download the maps for offline? I uninstalled from my tablet and downloaded the APK file and installed.

Press the download icon button, enter map name, then select the area of interest for download. In other words, just fallow the prompts.

I'm not seeing that anywhere. On the map screen?
