  • Great app!!

    By AppFan365201392
    I really like this app for hunting and hiking! I like the option to use it off-line, and it also works on my Apple Watch. I would give it five stars, but the Apple Watch app should be developed a little more.
  • Works like a champ

    I’ve been using Gaia for a couple of years now, both professionally and for recreation and as long as I download the correct maps it works great. In other words, the only problems I have had are my fault. I have a small GPS enabled tablet that I use it on and even with the larger screen the maps look great. I also find the ability to download my tracks and points as .kmz files very useful.
  • Gaia Keeps Getting Better

    In addition to using this app on hikes in my local area and abroad internationally ( 2X Camino walks/ England’s C2C ), I have used it on several volunteer projects including test site mapping locations for salmon restoration and water quality testing in WA. state. The app never fails, is consistently accurate, and new features added by the development team continue to make this my favorite hiking app.
  • Great App with a couple minor issues

    By The Strawman
    Let me start by saying I use a Premium Subscription and absolutely love this app and use it nearly daily for both work and recreation. I does so much that it has become a must for use with my fieldwork. My only complaints are the randomized coloring when importing tracks and the was area shapes are created. Using this app professionally, I often need all of my shapes to be specific colors or all one color. Often I can just quickly adjust them in the app, but when I have projects with hundreds of shapes this is no longer a viable option and is very frustrating. Simply allowing bulk adjustment would solve this problem for me. The second issue regarding creating areas is that often when I try to move the dots that adjust the area, it grabs the screen and tries to move it instead... sensitivity issue maybe? In any case, these issues are not deal breakers... I love this app and will continue to use it, but hope that these two simple things will be addressed in the future. I know I’m not the only one that would like to see this! Thanks for a great app!!!
  • Great hiking app

    By Famaz1700
    I love that it has all the hiking trails already and it tracks my location perfectly. If I had one complaint, its that it doesn't do exercise tracking with apple watch.
  • Amazing app & even more amazing staff

    By Search Sepp
    This is just a great all around app. I volunteer for a search and rescue organization and I run this app as well as my garmin when I go on searches. I contacted the support team a couple times inquiring on certain things and they responded almost immediately. I love being able to download sections of the map, because a lot of times the places I go have little to no service. It’s nice to be able to overlay the maps to get exactly what I want (satellite over a topo). Can’t say enough about the app and the staff.
  • 5/5

    Great app for over landing and off-roading. Especially in new areas

    Show federal forest boundaries
  • Best map app

    By MrMonkey909
    Fantastic app. Ability to download maps for hikes that are off the grid is really great.
  • Gaia GPS is so good I bought an iPad solely for it!

    I’ve tried a lot of GPS apps for off-road navigation and none of them impressed me. I really wanted one for detailed topo, public lands, and MVUM maps (where no cell service is available of course). I bought an iPad 9.7 for the sole purpose of using Gaia GPS Premium. I’ve downloaded all of the lower 48 states at max zoom with those three layers and it’s so nice to see all of the details of any area with airplane mode enabled. The app is well laid out, has all the options you’d want, and is a real pleasure to use on iOS. I absolutely love it.
