I have an Android tablet without 3G/4G connections.
Thus, when I fly at many locations the tablet is offline.
I can see that it is possible to download maps (through wifi) at the menu in the home page of DJO Go 4.
The downloading seems to work but when I then go to a place without wifi connection I can not see the
downloaded maps in the DJI Go 4 app.
What do I need to do to get this to work?
I have seen a video showing a setting for Use Offline Maps but I can not find that setting in my version of the app. (4.3.2)

I hope someone can give me some advice on this topic!

So this funktion is not available in the standard DJO Go 4 app?
(Even though there is a menu function "Download offline maps"!)

"Usually" you can download small squares (30x30/40x40 km?) of map box maps.
Just not many, 4 or 5, I don't bother with that, any longer.
And "Here-Maps" was a total country in a size of 4 or 5 map box scraps.

Since OTG is (on android) official, I just fly online at all times.
But since then I would really like to have google maps or nokia here back on.
Every time I use a phone with a old 4.1.15 (nokia here) and compare to litchi (google or map box, up2you) or DJI Go4 (4.2.21 in my case):
The sat-view of map box is terrible, compared to google. (Where I fly, at least!)
Also map box, in map view, is not as good as google or here (imho!)
And the best offline map is just here, because you don't have to worry if you have the map.

Thats the problem with goolemaps you have to be online to load your maps in cache memory (I like it offline too) but Here maps is online and offline.
All you have to do is get a valid Here ID and key and put it in when you make your own modded dji go
Also If you used a modded app and you don't have googlemaps anymore, use a valid google api (use the same if you own litchi for example) or create a new one.

Believe it or not, now my downloaded maps are actually visible when going into DJO Go 4 app while being offline.
I have no idea why it works this time!
I have shut down the tablet completely and then restarted it and the maps are still there!
For information, I have only downloaded two (2) "squares" but that is sufficient for me.

Hello I had a issue once all solved by making sure I selected the basic view and not satellite view. Leave it in basic view while perhaps online with WiFi. Then when offline the basic view map should be available if that makes sense.

Yes, till you fly somewhere else and have forgoten about it!
or when you have downloaded 4 or 5 and want another one:
it tells you, you have GB of space, but asked you do delete something.
Map box is (imho) even more horrible as google offline!
