    Hi Patrick,

    To import your map with a QR code, you will want to use the following steps:

    1. Open Avenza Maps on your Android device

    2. Tap the plus icon in the lower left corner and select "Download or import a map"

    3. Select the QR scanner icon in the upper right corner

    4. If prompted, ensure you enable the app to use the camera on your device

    5. Scan the QR code on your paper map

    6. If a free digital copy is included with your paper map, it will download immediately, or take you to a Map Store listing to select it to download or purchase (if a free digital copy is not included)

    For more details on importing maps, please see the help article - Importing maps from custom locations
