    When you begin a download in the new offline-maps section, is there supposed to be a traditional download prompt like when you download from whatever browser you are on or some sort of tracking progress in the command prompt?

    I have very high latency satellite internet that gets capped somewhere between 1-5mbps download speed and don't seem to have anything happen when I try to download one of the new MapBuilder offline layers.

    The files are downloaded directly by the app without going through your browser. The download button should be replaced by constantly-refreshed status text telling you how many files and MB are left. There's no need to wait for it to complete before selecting additional files for download though.

    Are you not seeing that?

    Adam, I should have checked the beta downloader specifically. I can reproduce.

    Sorry that I was not able to respond to this for you quickly. I was camping without cell service until today.

    No problem. Turns out the bug is specific to the way the javascript files are packed together, and I wasn't seeing it because even though I was testing the right code, I had a property setting to not pack the js files for easier debugging.
