This question relates to changing basemaps on a mobile device prior to using the new download feature.

I'm testing Collector 10.2.2 on a Google Nexus 7 running Android 4.3.  My question is this - while still connected to wi-fi is it possible to change the basemap selection on a mobile map and have that new basemap selection available for download?

For example, I have a mobile web map that by default uses ESRI's world imagery basemap service.  Depending on where I'm working with my mobile device it is sometimes better for me to use Open Street Map as the basemap.  It is easy to change this selection if I'm working in the 'connected' mode, but I want to be able to switch basemaps and then download that newly selected basemap for use in the disconnected mode.  Right now Collector does not seem to support that workflow.

Is there a way to switch basemaps on the mobile device for download to use off-line?
