Wondering if someone could help me in addressing this error message?
I am trying to download map layers of a 330 mile hike in Peru ( )to the Caltopo phone app (android) and thus far not successful.

    Hi David,

    You are getting that error message because we currently don't have offline layers available for download on the mobile app in Peru although we do plan to add that in the near future.

    Hi Megan,
    That's not good news.. No layers at all, no Open Cycle Map, no TF Forest? (I leave in 4 days to start a 330 mile journey on the inca trail). Do you have a work around?

    Hi Meghan,

    Okay, got it.

    Any workaround or will Caltopo phone app be not useful on this trek?

    We are working hard on including global offline downloads but until that happens, the mobile app will not be useful to you on your trek. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

    Just another user chiming in: the caltopo app will (at least, on my Samsung
    S9) automatically read in any .mbtiles file if you put it in the correct
    folder on your phone.

    On my phone's uSD card I have
    You'd want to read up on getting mbtiles. I used PortableBasemapServer on
    Windows - you could probably find info by googling. The fact that the app
    just reads em' in is a great feature. I think there are a couple of
    caveats, all outside the scope of this help line. I'd avoid spaces or
    underscores in the filename and the database table name when you create the
    mbtiles. Good luck!
