Updating maps...

With new trails popping up, the only way they will show up on my map is by deleting the state area map and redownloading it.  Is this the only way to get new trails?  An update button or something to that sort sure would be helpful rather than deleting and then downloading again...I'm sure plenty of people out there aren't even realizing the trails they could be missing!

Hi Shawn,

You bring up a good point! The mobile app will automatically check for new data every two weeks based on your date of install, and the data is updated weekly on Friday evenings. However, as you mention, the only way to ensure you have the most current data for the weekend is to delete/reinstall each area on a weekly basis to make sure you have the updated info. I will pass along your suggestion about adding an "Update" button to force the update--certainly would be nice to save you the hassle of deleting/reinstalling!

Thanks for the feedback!
