Hello - I've seen multiple discussion threads on this topic, but none seem all that helpful. I am trying to download a series of tiles for use offline, and store them on an SD card because my device's native internal storage just can't handle this volume of data. When I move the tiles over to the SD card, the app no longer seems to find them. According to all the discussions I've seen online, this should work just fine. What am I doing wrong?

I am using an Android device.

    Hi Chris,

    Can you verify that you moved the tiles to the correct folder: Android/data/com.caltopo.android/files/tiles? If it's not in the correct folder, it won't be picked up by the app.

    Thank you,
    Meghan

    But that's the problem. I want to store the tiles on an SD card, not in
    that folder. My device doesn't have enough storage for a lot of tiles.

    According to this thread, this is possible:

    You need to create that folder on your SD card.
