In the CalTopo app, on the Your Maps page, I presume those maps with the green double arrow icon are those that have been downloaded to the phone for offline use? And the red icon indicates the maps have not been downloaded? When you are done using a map can you delete it from the phone but not from the website?

    Hi David,
    You're on the right track. The logo indicates the sync status of the map, red is not synced - but it can be not synced from the phone to the cloud (has a cloud in the middle) or not synced from the cloud to the phone (little phone inside it). Maps are EXTREMELY small (a few KB at most typically) so there really isn't any reason to delete them from the phone. When the map is available on the phone note that's just the map data (such as markers, lines, etc). If you want map layers those are downloaded using "Download Layers" and allows for selection of the most appropriate overlays and layers.

    Does that answer your question?
