What image & compression format is needed to sideload a tile package into an Android tablet for offline Collector use?  It didn't like the ecw format I tried.

Hi Gary,

The only format for this purpose is the TPK (Tile Package format) as described here:

Using your own Basemap layers with Collector for ArcGIS | ArcGIS Blog

You can create these files in ArcGIS for Desktop  in several methods as described in my blog post:

Create Cache and TPK without ArcGIS for Server - Workflows for Desktop users

The usage of these files in the collector is as Basemap.

Good luck,
