Gaia GPS Hiking, Offroad Maps - Latest Quality Issues
Android

On discover mode the app seems to think anything less than 50km away is nearby, and you can't sort by distance. Not good for finding local trails

Would be the prefect app with an elevation profile overlay for the selected track. Until then I find myself trending to use AllTrails. Don't know why this feature is still missing on a mature app...

Glitchy and buggy app. All the time it needs force to close.

Great maps, NEEDS a better download manager. Living in a rural area (USA), I have horribly slow internet and worse cell phone service. Downloading maps for offline use is necessary, but I'm unable to see my progress on downloads. I'm not even sure if the downloads are going while the app is closed, as it's taking me longer than expected to download maps overnight. I have to remember to open the app hourly for downloads to finish.

Excellent app with signal and without signal records the entire route plus the speed and height that goes.

Car play needs an update
The app is great on the phone, but when plugged into Apple car play, it's struggles to auto-rotate, stay following, keep the compass on screen and update position. It seems the interface is unresponsive sometimes within Apple CarPlay, for example the recenter button doesn't really work for me, maybe 20% of them time. Would be nice to see a similar interface like on the phone, in Apple car play. A reliable follow function with auto rotate would be very beneficial.

My friend recommended this app to me and I have tried so many times to use it and it's so off where I'm going and not correct at all on my phone. I tried it with my friend and I'm getting a complete different result then he gets. On his phone it seems to work perfectly. On my it's so bad and definitely not trustworthy when u are in the backcountry relying on your GPS.

Just awful. Offline maps never finish downloading (on WiFi), making this app unusable if there is no signal, and I am talking 2.3MB worth of maps! The download icon sits in the menu of the phone for days at the time, doing nothing. Updates to maps (within the app) refuse to download claiming there active downloads (there are none). Fortunately had Locus Maps Pro bail me out on the trail, because if I relied on this app I would be doomed. Not sure what the Premium Membership is buying me here.
