App Reviews

  • Great to plan routes for off-road riding

    By Julien velo
    Downloaded the app and tested it for off-road motorcycle. The automatic tracing of a route over existing marked trails is an awesome feature that makes planning the route considerably easier than with Google Earth or Garmin Basecamp. I downloaded satellite image and usgs topo maps of the area I was riding in so I didn't need to rely on having network or not during the ride. Battery usage was reasonable and it can certainly last for 12 hours or more with every app turned off and airplane mode. The website is fairly good too. Only small complain is that the web app folder system is a little convoluted - it's not obvious at first where things go at first. The mobile app occasionally crashes while managing files, yet nothing was lost. Compare to a Garmin gps unit the only limitation is the device's gps accuracy and recording rate but it's no issue for off-road riding/driving, likely not an issue for hiking neither.
  • The best map application I’ve found

    By ddrazen
    This is my first “detailed” online review ever, for any product. The closest I’ve come is giving something a few stars, but never in detail. I’ve always been the end user of reviews, but this app is well worth the time to share. I’m a bit of a map fanboy. I’ve always loved them and currently have 7 map apps installed on my phone. I often wonder why, when I always end up using Gaia GPS. The interface takes a little bit of time to get used to, but the power of the tool is well worth it. I’m continuously finding new features of the app and I love all the different options. I haven’t found any other application that can do something Gaia can’t. I can’t recommend it enough, you will not be disappointed!
  • Bkkls

    By Klsdtffyg
    I left my old review below but have talked to someone at gaia They listened and I felt confident my issues will be addressed.I sent 3 emails and waiting to see if I get a response. they are the best app out there for your phone they will get 5 stars after I receive answers to my emails Old review below Even though i can use it for 2 years free unless their going to go back and take that away to . I am disappointed in the new app and in management of the buiness . There are so many maps that are worthless have no purpose . I have called them with suggestions of maps to add and to point out a mistake on one map and all i got was someone very defensive no help at all . I will not pay a monthly or yearly fee i will drop the app and use my dependable garmin rhino
  • Repeat to Gabe in NH, June 28 request

    By Jo in Wisc
    Gabe requested an alert when nearing a saved waypoint. We canoe and often need to scout upcoming rapids we’ve marked with waypoints. When we are actively paddling, stopping frequently to check progress on Gaia is difficult. Love the app but this would be a great feature to add and could significantly increase users safety. Thank you Gaia for a great app. Gaia is a great hiking app but please fix the search function. A few letters are typed in and the drop down list appears. You cannot type more letters to make that list more concise. You cannot get out of the list. You have to close Gaia and start over. For such a great app the search feature should function better. January 17 update: I appreciate the fast response from the developer providing info about the app search functions that I had previously found. But you must be in portrait mode for the search function to work correctly. Suggest either rework search function to also work in landscape mode or include that limitation in help info. Still the best hiking GPS app available
  • This app Saves your bacon!

    By JH Dietrich
    I’ve been using Gaia for around 2 years, and it’s become my right hand man on backcountry outings. This app while being used as a GPS enabled device allows me to navigate efficiently and quickly in the mountains with a high degree of certainty. It’s easy to use and I love the tracking feature for not only backcountry trips, but also just running around town. I was living in Spain this summer and Gaia worked fantastically all over Europe. During a spontaneous 23 mile run/accidental sufferfest Gaia got me out of a pickle in the Chamonix area because I was able to use a “trail” that was totally unused but showed up. This app is fantastic, and super customizable. I love it.
  • THE BEST recreational mapping app!!!

    By wdbald
    This is BY FAR the best app if you like hiking, walking or driving, no matter your signal strength. Fantastic array of maps, easy and reliable offline downloads of those maps, easy tracking of routes that map your altitude, speed, everything! Include a great folder system for saved maps/routes/points and top it off with social sharing and you’ve got a whirlwind of an app. Way better than AllTrails and the 20 other Hiking apps (all of which I have put to the test). P.S. they also include a super helpful Watch app showing data, route controls and even the map with your live location which you can scroll on!
  • Best by far...still

    By americasbeaches
    This has been my backcountry navigation app for years in the Rockies. More and more friends of mine are using it now and although we all try other ones, this is still the gold standard for me. The ability to turn it on and see where I am on both the USGS 7.5 min map and a satellite image, with blending of the two images, is awesome! That is a Premium tool... well worth it. I use it for both on trail and off trail navigation and planning to find and get to high country meadow fishing spots. (Also, they finally got the detailed NOAA chart of upper Mobile Bay, where I boat, on the premium so now I’m using it more in my boat. Thanks)
  • No need for a Garmin!

    By Jordan Finke
    This app is amazing for riding snowmobile and giving you statistics on how long you were riding, how long you were stopped, mapping your trails, and making waypoints so you can remember those sweet hill climb spots. Especially offline/no service!!! If you aren't happy with the sattilite imagery they have a hidden one under premium maps by ESRI which is amazing in rural Alaska! My only issue with the app as it stands right now is that on the iPhone X, you can't crop a track as the save button is under the iPhones top status bar, so then you have to force quit the app, which they have an update coming out soon for.
  • The #1 hiking gps.

    By Mordeth619
    This app is an amazing hiking gps. Not only does it have dotted lines that follow pretty much every known hike that I have been on around San Diego, Yosemite, Zion, Joshua Tree, Kaua‘i, Seattle, Columbia River Gorge, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, etc. I have also used it for planning out and following my tracks on many hikes that have no trail, such as waterfalls that nobody knows about that I find on google earth then plot waypoints on Gaia. I have had the itch to buy a dedicated handheld gps multiple times, but every time after doing some research, I find that they don’t compare to Gaia. I have used this app as my main hiking GPS for 3 years, and it has never let me down.
  • Best Bang for the Buck

    By JeepPhoenix
    I’ve tried them all on my iPad and iPhone. GAIA GPS has the best maps, map updates/transfers/overlays, the fastest speed, the best features, design, usability, and is constantly improved - further distancing its lead on the competition. It’s never crashed, is super easy to use and I’ve overspent enough money on other gps apps to know GAIA is the best (and as a bonus kinda cheap too). My wife and I use it for jeeping. I wish we could also explore the single tracks with GAIA but our jeep is her wheelchair. GAIA is my insurance to helping her enjoy the outdoors. Thank you GAIA. I got a bargain. I would have paid 10x easily.
