Still reviewing. Overall I like the app but its is geared more towards hiking than off reading or overlanding. It pairs best using Google or Garmin navigation. One problem id like to see fixed is a way to lock the screen in Landscape mode. It flutters around even on well maintained gravel roads. I need to dive into website side of things to see what kind of controls I have. I do like way points and ability to tie pictures to them, etc.

Terrific little app for biology field work. So much easier than busting out the Garmin which obviously doesnt have the geotagging photo capability that Gaia offers, nor the ability to edit your tracks. ALL of us have forgotten to end tracking and turn off our units after a survey. With Gaia, you can crop your tracks, edit the color, and hide or display previous tracks to facilitate field work. Can't say enough good things about this app!

Android auto mode is useless. I have been hoping that this would i.provr, buy a year later its just as buggy and useless as it was the first day I used it. I want to navigate to a specific location, but there's no way. I can't find any of my way points to navigate to and if I start a navigation on the phone it doesn't continue on android auto. When driving, the map doesn't update smoothly and often the arrow just disappears off the screen.
