Does the Xamarin Forms SfMap support loading map files from a local source when the device is offline?  I have access to mbtiles and osm map formats for offline use.

Hi Bryan, 

Greetings from Syncfusion. 

We don't have support for the offline map by using the mbtiles file in SfMaps. We currently have support for OSM (default tile layer) and Bing map. This map will be downloaded from the online server and the tiles will be stored in the application cache. Next time, it will be referred from cache whether you are in online or offline. 

Regards, 
Vignesh.

Just to be clear, once we download the maps, they will be available after the device restarts even if it is offline?

Thanks

Hi Bryan, 
 
Thanks for your response. 
 
As we said in our previous update, the downloaded tile images were stored in the application cache. So, it remains there, until the app gets uninstalled. 
 
Regards, 
Rachel.
