I'm trying out the new collector app. I have TPKs loaded on my Ipad. When I go to download the maps it only gives me the option for downloading the imagery and the vector data. There isn't an option to download the vector data only. Is there a way to download the vector data only like in Collector Classic?
Hi Andy -- Using a sideloaded TPK during download isn't supported at this time. Once you've downloaded the map, then you can use the sideloaded TPK. You might find this information useful: Can I use basemaps copied (sideloaded) to the device?
Kylie Donia the previous version of Collector allowed the selection of the sideloaded basemap during map download, which allowed users with poor wifi connections to skip the unnecessary step of having to download a huge basemap package with each map download. I'm assuming ESRI has this logged as a major bug and this will be addressed in the next release? It was previously supported, why is it no longer supported?
This is definitely functionality we are planning to add into Collector. It will be coming in beta on iOS soon (I'd estimate in the next couple of weeks).
As to your point on how you are required to download a basemap today, you don't have to download a huge one. Just download the basemap with the lowest level of detail (like level 0 or 1) so that you get a smaller basemap during download, and replace it with the one you want after that.
