Requires an account

This app requires an account to do anything, and it apparently cannot be bypassed. This indicates the company is monetizing information about users. This is likely also why the terms of service require you be truthful and promise to keep your account info updated for them. If you’re privacy minded, maybe seek an alternative app.

The greatest app ever

Offline maps, route mapping and planning, consistent easy to use UI with dedicated bug fixes. If you buy four nat geo maps you would have paid for a full year of Gaia with maps for the entire world. It’s the best! Thank you all in the dev team for making this awesome application, I appreciate you all so much.

Guide me feature is broken

Everything else is great. Guide me is buggy. The app slows way down and eventually the guide me cancels itself and you lose some track points from your active recording. It has been like this for over a year. Probably not a heavily tested feature!

Needs major work

Would love to use the app, it keeps crashing and once I mapped a river route it deleted from my saved. Makes it hard to like this app.

Bugged login. App unusable

Keep getting the error: URLSessionTask failed with error: The network connection was lost. I have a stable, working internet connection. Not sure what the deal is. Really a bummer after just buying a year membership.

Very powerful tool for exploring the outdoors

I have been using Gaia for about three years now and could not be happier. I have used it with great success for recording hikes, runs, skis, and climbs. It is a great navigation tool. I have found it vital for reaching obscure trailheads, retracing our steps down Mt. Rainier and Nevado Tocllaraju in total whiteouts, and choosing the safest routes for winter travel. There are hundreds of downloadable layers such as slope angle, snow depth, snow/rain/smoke forecasts, recent satellite, and many, many others. You can map out routes and set waypoints, set areas, overlay .gpx files. The applications are endless. The subscription also comes with an account for Outside+, which has numerous interesting films about climbing, skiing, and other sports. Gaia is the best of the best. Any reviews with less than five stars are simply wrong.

Can’t even create an account

Gaia forever

Gaia is amazing and makes me feel so safe when I go hiking. My skills are on point but you never know when something can happen and I find it absolutely amazing that I could send an exact trail on how to find me if I got hurt.

App won’t work

Since the merger with outside, this app is useless. I’ve paid for the full year and I can’t even login. My GAIA login won’t transfer to outside. I’ve tried every way, changing pass codes, re-logging in. I can see my map but if I try to make any changes, it just prompts me to login again and again and again. Please fix this!!!!

Half my app is in German

Half the app switched itself to German and the other half is in English. There’s no way to switch it back. I read every setting and there’s no help articles or response from customer service.
