I have the area that I want on satellite view on the tablet... then what?
In the map view, click on the 3 dots in the upper right. Click on "Point Options", then "Download Map" and adjust to the desired zoom. You may have downloaded it before at a zoomed out zoom (like 12 or something) and then tried to zoom in closer than you had cached. Or, maybe you just weren't on the right basemap.
