The Map Layers menu changed in January 2015, and here is how to find your maps.
This is an excerpt from the newsletter on January 30th.
To access the layers menu, use the button at the top of the screen. This is a good place to go if, at any time, the map you see on the screen does not match what you expect.
For preview of any maps with an internet connection, and to see maps you've previously downloaded to the "Main Tile Cache", choose Online/Cache Tiles.
To find what you downloaded before, simply do these things:
- Choose the map source
- Be centered on the right place (through GPS or Find a Place)
Also note: if you turn off Internet Loading, you will see only the tiles that you have already cached. This is the same view you would see in airplane mode or when you otherwise don't have an internet connection.
Saved Map Folders
If you've done a map download and given it a specific name, this is the place to look for it. This step trips up people and causes them to leave comments like "doesn't really work offline", so be sure to practice this before you leave home.
Choose the folder in which you have saved maps, and choose from any of the map sources that you have saved there (might be just one).
If you want a shortcut for choosing Cache or saved folder, choosing map source, and choosing the center, a simple way is by checking the download history. You can choose one of your recent downloads and choose Center...
Before, the way to load such maps was to go to "Use Mobile Atlas" in the More Maps menu. This is intended for readonly maps that have been built by other software, that you can browse to on your file system.
Where does one get such maps, you ask? You can use a tool called Mobile Atlas Creator (MOBAC) on your desktop to create it from various internet sources. It has a compact format called "BackCountry Navigator SQLite. Or a tool called MAPC2MAPC that can create it from image sources, including charts data.
