Gaia GPS Hiking, Offroad Maps - Latest Quality Issues
Oct 20, 2021
I downloaded the app and gave up exploring when I saw the fighters option, this is surreal ...

Having a problem when adding a way point while tracking my hike. I want to delete the track and save the way point. I get the option to do so but the way point gets deleted also.

Interesting application, but incomplete. Missing the mileage marker on the track, the kilometer by kilometer stats (speed, time), no cardio option. Besides, I don't understand the usefulness of the camera icon. I used it on a course by taking a photo from time to time. I thought I would find these positioned on my course at the place where they were taken, but nothing? These few improvements would make it an essential application for hikers whether they go for a walk or hikes a little more sporty, to follow the cardiological and speed-time progressions. To be continued.

Getting worse, not better
Latest update is a huge disappointment. Can't see anything on the map anymore because of all the crap blocking the view. Plus it keeps zooming in every time I zoom out. Again, a real disappointment.

Can no longer log in
I am now forced to sign into outside magazine which won't allow me to try and recover my password essentially bricking the app.

No off route alert
I really want to dump my garmin but this app offers no off track alerts and that requires you to ride and keep an eye on the app which is neither safe nor convenient. Please add this feature soon.

Unresponsive Technical Support
I'm quite pleased with the iPhone version of this App. However, I like to search for and set up hikes on the iPad version, and this version has bugs. I've submitted tech support requests to deal with one or more of these, and am met with absolute silence. Especially since I've paid for the Premium version, I certainly expect better. The biggest technical issue I have is that I can search for, and find hikes for which summary info is displayed in the (left) sidebar, including a Preview Map. When I touch the sidebar map, a pop up appears asking me whether to display on the Main Map, Expand the Preview or Cancel. The Preview will expand if that is chosen. However, when choosing Display on Main Map, the area of the trail/hike is displayed by NOT the route of the hike. This fault makes the iPad version of Gaia GPS almost useless for any detailed planning. I've repeatedly asked for help with this from Tech Support and get absolutely no response. Conclusion - Don't bother with the iPad version of this App! … Since posting this review and two weeks after posting my tech support request, I finally had a response. It did not resolve my issue, but at least it was a response, however, late.

Great Mapping but Totally Unreliable
When it works, this is a fantastic tool for scouting new trips, planning routes, and recording tracks. Being able to create routes on their website and have them sync to my phone is great. CarPlay support is a game changer, too. The suite of features includes nearly everything you'd want in a mapping application. However, I can't recommend this app as it is completely untrustworthy. Many times has it deleted my routes while I was out far from cell service. Other times it has logged me out and not allowed me to access any of my routes, downloaded maps, or premium map layers. The app renders itself totally useless far too often I have contacted their support and received outstanding customer service, but we haven't been able to address or recreate these issues when troubleshooting. Only when I am away from cell service does the app let me down. If you need to depend on an app to help you navigate in the backcountry, look elsewhere. If you never leave cell service then I this app will likely exceed your expectations. My premium subscription ends later this year and I likely won't renew until I know that reliability has been improved.
