Offline Mapping in Plot Hound

Today we're excited to announce another much-requested feature: Offline Mapping.

It's no fun to be out cruising without a map.  Now Plot Hound makes it easy for you to cache aerial imagery of your stand so that you can always see a map - even when you don't have a data connection.

Here's how it works:

Click the download button in the top right of the Cruise page

You'll see the button start spinning, and then you'll get a message that your download is complete

Aerial imagery will be downloaded to your phone and will be displayed on the Map page

Plot Hound caches multiple zoom levels, so you can zoom all the way in to your stand, or all the way out to the surrounding area.

Right now, the offline mapping feature is limited to stands that are 60 acres or smaller.  It's also somewhat experimental, so please let us know if it gives you any trouble!  We're also working on adding topographic data to the aerial imagery as well.

As always, we're looking forward to your feedback - please leave a comment below!
