Thanks Adam - I was able to plan my flight at home where I have coverage and then fly it up in the mountains where there isn’t any. I was planning on flying over a pond and dam as a training exercise, but it turned out this is on private land (this was not shown as private on Google Maps, it was shown as National Forest land), so I didn’t fly that mission. I wanted to build a model of an alternative terrain feature, but since I didn’t have cell coverage, I wasn’t able to build a new project while on site. My question was, since the DroneDeploy app had downloaded a Google Map for the area (it showed up on the display as it was near the pond) why couldn’t the app allow me to build a new map there even when I was offline? That could then be sync’d up to the server later when I connected, before I uploaded the pictures. I could see this being an issue when I am flying for a customer when we have a change of plans at a Oil Well Site for example - they need me to model a second area near the well pad. Currently I think I would need to return to an area of coverage, plan the new flight, return to the Oil Well Pad, then fly the 2nd project. While this is a bit hypothetical, Colorado has a lot of areas unserved by cell coverage, both in the eastern plains where there are many potential agriculture and oil and gas clients, and in the mountains where there are many mining, oil and gas and utilities clients. This functionality could save a lot of driving back and forth - maybe we could download a google map of the area (just like in the google maps app) and have that accessible in the Drone Deploy app for Project planning while offline? Does this sound feasible?
ps: I guess this thread morphed into a feature request!
