Tile Packages and Collector.

I would like to use a Tiled Pckage to streamline the amount of syncing in Collector 10.2.4.  I want to use World Imagery but you cannot include ESRI basemaps when creating it in ArcMap.  Someone at the UC showed me how you could Export Tiles with but it keeps asking for a login - do I need Portal for this to work and not just an Organization ArcGIS Online account?

and even if I did, I also have my own map services I would want to create a TPK out of, but would I have a problem anyway because I then would have two TPK, one with World Imagery, and one with my own data, and could not overlay them?

I ask because the square extract area is not helpful because I have an area that is 600 feet X 200 miles.

BTW does anyone know the full name / email for I think it was Gary at the Collector station at the UC?  I was asking him about an "Illegal Token" error and he was going to look up some things - I have some new information on my end, and I can't find his card! Thanks!

You just need a ArcGIS Online org account to access tiledbasemaps. You will still hit the same 100,000 tile limit. You could copy a downloaded basemap from the Collector, bring it into ArcMap and mash it up with your own layers and generate a new tpk which can then be sideloaded onto the device.
