Issue with offline maps

This app has been a game changer. I downloaded all the maps I thought I needed, I recently went in to download a new one and it’s giving an error saying offline maps not available, and I can’t update my current offline maps. I wish this could be fixed.

A great application for Overlanding

Overall this Application is getting better and better with each new update. I’ve been using it for several years now in the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia with great success. I very much appreciate the forest service offering the free application and also keeping information such as weather warnings and fire up-to-date. We also camp quite a bit on the western states including California, Oregon and Washington and it is always hopeful to see where the fires are.
As far as off-line capability goes its latest update is quite useful in addition to being able to save maps for completely off-line use. This is one of the better free apps out there and I would highly recommend to all my overlanding, off grid or 4x4 friends.

Offline maps offline

I accidentally deleted my offline maps thinking I could download them again, but I’m unable to download ANY offline maps now. I hope a patch is coming soon!
