Load tile package > 4 GB onto Android tablet for Collector basemap?

I am configuring Collector for use on Android tablets for offline editing, and I would like to be able to sideload the basemaps as described within this help article: Prepare for offline data collection—ArcGIS Collector | Documentation 

I created a tile package and the total size is about 5 GB which puts it past the file size limit of 4 GB for the FAT32 file system. As far as I can tell, the only way to copy this file onto my microSD card is to re-format the SD card as NTFS. But then, the Android tablet won't recognize it. 

Has anyone else run into similar issues and come up with a solution? 

I can try to just create a smaller tile package, but it needs to have aerial imagery for a 300 foot buffer surrounding 275 miles of streams. If anyone has suggestions on how to do this while still maintaining a high enough image quality for technicians to be able to use this imagery while in the field, it would be much appreciated.
