How can I open a public CalTopo map (ex. https://caltopo.com/m/HRP7 ) from within the CalTopo Android app?

How can a another person open one of my saved CalTopo maps, from within the CalTopo Android app?

Thanks!

    Hi Tom. To add a map bookmark (a map you don't own) go to Your Bookmarks and hit the plus sign, you would then use the 4 digit code in the URL to add the map (in this example HRP7).

    Best,
    Ben

    I rewrote this as a "CalTopo Quick Tip".
    A CalTopo Quick Tip: To access a pre-existing CalTopo ma that you do not "own", from the CalTopo app:
    - From the CalTopo app, click on the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left
    - Click on "Your Bookmarks"
    - Click the plus sign (+)
    - Type the 4 digit map code you find in the URL of the map
    - Click OK
    - when you go to "Your Bookmarks", you should see this map listed.
