Send maps from Offline Desktop application to mobile devices

Steve Reinhart

Is there a way to push maps to mobile devices without internet connection. We have a team account and run the CalTopo desktop app in our communications vehicle, which also has a mobile WiFi router. We have had several situations where team members reported to the IC in a location with no cell coverage and we needed to load the incident map on the members mobile device.

    Hi Steve, 

    There is no way to get a map onto a mobile device without a data connection. The nice thing about team accounts, is that if you load the map into the team account before you leave service, then the team member can also load that before they leave service, if reporting to an IC outside of a data connection.
