OpenStreetMap Layers?

Hello, just curious if there are any plans to make the OpenStreetMap tiles available for download for the offline version for SARTopo. I noticed that OpenStreetMap has city/village boundaries for many locations that doesn't seem to be represented in the existing tile sets. I would assume its not their either due to a lack of demand or licensing issues.

    Which specific boundaries are you looking for? At this time we don't offer OSM data packaged for download, and I'm actually not 100% sure we could legally. The map builder layer uses a lot of OSM data however.

    Thanks Ben for the quick response! In the attached screenshot of Holly, MI you can see the purple dashed line which shows the village limits in the OSM window. The Map Builder layer on the right doesn't feature that dashed line.

    Gotcha. Yes this was something we did not include in the layer, there is just only so much we can display. We're adding parcel data to the map in the next couple weeks, we may integrate city, county, etc boundaries into that layer.
