Privacy and folders are bad

Want to make sure everyone on the planet knows where your secret fishing hole is? Keeping data private is like not walking on trip wires at night. They just want your data. Want to organize your waypoints once your at a comfy computer screen? Play the “how many times can you click” game as you painfully move every single waypoint into a folder. Want to export to your data with notes and pictures? Well who really wants that to be easy.... I really do like the basics of this app; but working wit

Pros: Love the topos and offline/cell capabilities. Cons: Elevation data is inaccurate compared to GPS Kit app & Garmin 62s. Graph is often clipped at top. Even when it isn’t, studying the graph shows more elevation gain than the corresponding data produced. Haven’t discovered how to drop a waypoint if that is possible. Prefer to edit hikes on a lap top to review data and create a track with waypoints to be used in future. Conclusion: still evaluating for usefulness for navigating hikes.

Gaia GPS Works Best

Thank you for continuing to improve Gaia GPS. You have justified my faith as a 5 year premium subscriber. I would like more categories for tracks/routes/maps. 1. Walking along pathways is very popular now. 2. ATV/UTV trails are often different from dirt bikes. Canoeing/kayaking. Sorting views/maps) by size (MB), would be useful. Please keep up the good work!

Ideal for aspiring backcountry climbers

Have been using this fantastic app along with a solar panel for multi day trips in the PNW with no problems for over a year now. From remote down river trips where missing beaches would have ruined the day to trying to rediscover a remote boulder, Gaia’s functions have been simply and have not failed me once. I only wish I could purchase a lifelong item vs the subscription service!

Thank you Gaia GPS!!!

The ONLY Choice

Gaia is one of those unicorn apps that renders all competing products utterly useless. Now, with the proliferation of waterproof phones, even a handheld, standalone GPS unit from the traditional manufacturers are silly in comparison. Gaia is fast, easy to navigate and continuously improves in their product. They have tracking capability but also trail auto-routing in some cases. I use this app almost every day and I’m amazed at the small features and capabilities I confuse finding. Their mapping overlays are incredible both in detail and selection. Using the overlays one can find any number of unique areas or special, hidden locations. With a product like Gaia I wonder why any other GPS/mapping solution even exists.. Keep up the good work guys!

Horrible to navigate

This app is no good. I thought after paying 20$ I would get more features but after paying for the 20$ membership it removed 5 layers from the maps I had available and now I can only view 2 map layers and it won’t let me add the old layers back. So I paid 20$ to lose features and maps with no response from support. Spend your money elsewhere

Excellent product and support

I’ve been hiking and using gps devices for years. Without a doubt GAIA is excellent, easy to use and best of all, excellent support. Do nit hesitate to try and buy.

This app doesn't work! Apple watch works much better.

Incredible GPS

UPDATE: I only had one suggestion in my original review and it turns out the developer already fixed it in the most recent update. I would give this app more than 5 stars if I could! ORIGINAL REVIEW: I’ve tried a lot of GPS apps and this is hands -down the best one I’ve ever found for backcountry use. The only improvement I’d suggest is adding the option to ignore the phone’s dark mode setting. I much prefer the iOS interface in dark mode but find the dark Gaia map pretty difficult to read in most circumstances.
