Is is possible to view the US Forest Service maps in Locus?

I`m particularly interested in the Eastern US Transportation map, which includes hiking trails. It appears these maps are stored in the GeoDB format. Backcountry Navigator has the maps available in their app, but I much prefer the Locus app.

Hi,

unfortuantely geoTiff or geoDB format is not supported in Locus at this moment.

I suggest to use USGS map from Locus > Maps > Online > USGS which have also good coverage for US states.

I notice that this was last updated 3 years ago. Is the necessary format still unsupported? 90% of the time I use Locus, I am in areas covered by the USFS maps. USGS maps are good, but not as good as USFS.
