I have been trying to export a map from my phone using the backcountry navigator app to print maps and when I try and print a map it prompts a message saying that I am using google layers and then gives me a white page. Is there a work around for this?

    Hi Sam,

    Unfortunately Google layers are restricted from printing per our contract with Google. However other base layers that can be printed can be a good substitute, such as NAIP instead of the Google satellite base layer. My suggestion would be to explore some of the other base layers to see if you can find something comparable.
