2021-02-26 Really?!? I get that you don’t care. Your repeated responses make that clear. You already refunded the subscription even though I told you not to buy instead to use the money to actually improve the product instead of throwing previously loyal customers/ users away. You even tried to give a year of the higher level sub but I have refused to sign up for that cause why? It would be nice if you would actually work to fix stuff instead of your only reply being to give a refund. Smh. You don’t remotely answer the question as to how your watch application will ever be usable for real backpackers? One of the main target audiences for you application. I guess you new target audience is only people going for short walks. Lol. Ok. Thank you for nothing. ****Update to keep this visible. Had to clear previous reviews text because it was “too long” Watch application still useless for real backpackers. You have to either use the application on your phone or the watch. Or you can track completely separate tracks on both. Sigh. A real backpacker goes for days. The watch is not going to last running full tracking for more than a couple hours. The phone last pretty much all day and can be recharged while using it. With the old watch app the phone would b safe in the top of my pack and I could glance at my watch, with almost zero impact on the battery, to see the (truncated to allow for response to the developer’s reaponse)
Using Gaia to plan a day out back, including backup routes, and share them with the group is standard procedure. Input from group members, finding and making adjustments based on weather, avalanche reports, or other day of factors is fast and effective. This a helpful tool for aligning group consensus for trip safety and route making before even leaving the parking lot. Love it.
I love the accuracy of this app! I use another app to find hikes and this app to track without getting lost
I have been using Gaia GPS for a couple years and was very happy w/ it. I used road maps which were included with the free version. Apparently there was a recent update and now I only have satellite maps available. These are less useful for regular walks in towns and cities. I will be switching to either Strada or All Trails to track my walks. Not happy w/ update!!!
I use this app to plan every single one of my hikes. First, I use the Public Land and Private Land layers to find a legal place to go. Then I decide on a destination and a route, and create a route. I then download the maps for use offline. Then I head into the woods with my phone on ‘airplane mode’. I follow my own pre defined route to my destination! It’s easy and doesn’t drain the battery. You won’t be disappointed if you purchase the pro version... it gives you access to so many needed layers.
Since the update to the untethered version I have been unable to record a complete track. The app seems to drop coordinate data and all that I see on the map are sections of straight lines. Distance, elevation and pace are incorrect. I have been in contact with Support, they tell me that they know about the bug, but can’t tell me when it might be fixed! The iPhone version has always been great.
I like this app, I have been using this for years for hiking or off road. GPS track is middle of the center of the screen. Is that not possible to move down one third of the screen, we can see our more track or trail just like google gps track icon.
Constant app upgrades often with significant improvement - keep it up folks - much appreciated! Whenever I have a question it has been answered in short order. I love this app!
I don’t like to pay for apps, but I gladly pay to have all the features of Gaia GPS. I began using it when I went to Spain to hike the Camino de Santiago. I arrived with my iPhone and only a basic idea of the app, but it was easy to use. I photographed the route from another pilgrim and created routes each day charting my course over the Pyrenees from France across Spain all the way to the Atlantic. Since then I’ve been using it to track my hikes in the United States. It’s wonderful to go back and review my hikes. It does not disappoint and programmers continue to impress with improvements.
I have used this app for a long time and have loved it. I find the new features quite clunky. Do yourself a favor and try CalTopo until they clean up the mobile and web interface.
