Thanks for the info. Is it currently possible to side load downloaded ArcGIS.com basemaps to another device? In other words a user takes an existing map offline with a portion of the ArcGIS.com basemap. Can you use the sideload method to connect the iPad to iTunes, copy the basemap, and then plug in a different iPad and paste it on there? I have tried and seem to be doing something wrong. Or maybe it is not possible.
It is possible. Downloaded basemaps are in the "Basemaps" folder on the device. You can save this folder to your computer using iTunes. Then you can use the Finder to look inside the folder and find the .tpk file for the downloaded basemap. That .tpk file can be side loaded to any iOS device that has Collector following the basemap side loading process (described here)
