Crashes every time I try to add a layer. Most recent app version, OS, and iPhone. I can’t believe I paid for 3 years for absolutely nothing.

They will ask you to sign in offline and screw you

If your primary purpose is offline maps look elsewhere, GAIA is no longer what it was. I hope the original developers cashed out well, they were awesome. New ownership thinks it’s ok to lock you out of what you paid for by default. Twice I’ve been hiking and gone two turn on my map only to be asked to sign in…. Not possible when off line. So now you are out there without a map. The only two times I tried yo use it since last $40 fee. The whole point of this app is to have a map off line…. If you are about there when they decide you need to log in again you get screwed. I want my money back. Used to live this app, now I wouldn’t have it on any device, you are better with nothing than a false sense of security. OutDoor can blow me, by defaulting to greed rather than safety you have lost me FOREVER! Cal Topo here I come. Give me my money back Gaia, we are done

If I had a dollar…

for every time Gaia randomly deleted THE ENTIRE LIST of my custom map imports, or a dollar for every time it denied me the right to download adequately large detailed maps, I would be richer than Elon Musk. Gaia is a heart-breaking mess of extreme penny-penching bandwidth-starvation, and severe bugs that will waste MANY HOURS of your time in the random snap of a finger. Those who are rating it highly are only using its most basic functions, and have never even tried its easily superior competitors.

Gaia has become a necessity!

I found this app about 6 months into my Jeep Wrangler ownership. I used a couple other apps before this, but the flexibility and the features Gaia brings to the table I had to switch to Gaia. I also was able to extract the data from the other apps and easily import into Gaia, so no trails lost!

Great app!

Only app I found where you can overlay several layers. Super helpful when hiking, camping, use for large private property lines. Especially love the satellite topography layers.

Went from good to trash

Wow, outside. I don’t know how you did it but Gaia now hangs forever on startup, crashes, doesn’t show my pins or tracks half the time, searching is a nightmare, and map downloads are painful. How did you make it so bad so quickly?

Recommend to my friends and family.

This is the mapping software to get. 100% best option.

Good but could be better

I like Gaia but I can’t believe the app doesn’t have the option to track elevation profile along the route. AllTrails has it. I know users have been asking this feature for many years but it isn’t added, though it’s a must-have functionality for hikers. I might have to move to alltrails if this feature isn’t added soon. Edit: I’m not talking about recording track and elevation stats. I meant while looking at my saved route to be able to drag your finger along the route and match it with the elevation gain and loss graph.

Awesome app

Best trail making app(for free). Other apps don’t allow you to see the trails you made all at once because you didn’t purchase the yearly subscription. This app lets you do that without the subscription and lets you change the colors etc. The only issue is you need to buy the subscription to use the different map features and other things. Other than that this app is great.

Free Use - Very Misleading!

App Store description says free to use except no “mass-download” of maps, truth is you CAN’T download any map without paying for the $39.99 Premium subscription! I just wanted offline maps for emergency use but without map data this App is useless to me. It’s no better than Apple Maps or Google Maps when you loose the ability to get map data out of the cloud, GPS position on a blank screen.. USELESS!
