I have noticed that since I upgraded the app to premium the gps bounces off random areas. For example it showed my location off by a mile. It isn’t a serious issue if I know the area well enough to crop the track. With that being said, if I was in a serious situation I wouldn’t be in the area the gps says I am. All in all, I love the app and will continue to recommend it to others.
This is a great App for hiking with just a few bugs. One bug that I have encountered is linking a photo in my photo library with a waypoint. GAIA GPS brings up my photos for a specifiy waypoint but doesn’t use a photo that I tap on.
I’d be fine paying $20/year for an app that was actually useful. Sure, you can download your gpx track into the app and view it on the map, but how useful is only that? Can you view the elevation profile? No. Can you see where you are on the elevation profile (so you can also easily determine miles to go)? Of course not, because there is no elevation profile! What’s the point of this app when you can just get the USGS topos and see where you are on them with many other free apps?
App works great for me.
I have used this app solely for backpacking. I don’t take my Garmin anymore. It is a very easy app to use. Detailed maps and accurate! It doesn’t have an electronic compass but I didn’t use that feature all that often.
Love the way the app works. Would like to see it easier to start and stop a track. That would help a lot!!
I'm safer in the back country with this app!!! My friends are all using it now as well and it is easier for us to communicate where we are hunting.. Bryan
Just bought a premium subscription. After playing around on the app, I am left completely unimpressed. Can’t even download a regular topo map for a large area (less than the size of Phoenix) that I will be off-roading for a few days. The app only lets you download 100k tiles, which is next to nothing. Navigating the app is not even user-friendly. For way less topo maps is much better app, you just have to know how to use/read maps. This app is not worth $20, much less the $40 they charge for premium. I am going to ask for money back, especially since I have no intention of ever using it.
Awesome app and it has served me well on many remote locations
When you try to get driving directions it wands you to your normal map. Why did I pay for that?
