I've had this app for 3+ years and they keep adding more features but they also keep breaking many of the basic features.
Bit buggy Used it first on an iPad and very satisfied, now on a Samsung tablet and having a few issues; mainly, deleting maps does not really work. Either it wipes out other maps at the same time or then tries to download that same map I just apparently deleted again. So the only solution to get rid of unwanted maps seems to deinstall and reinstall the program!?
It tracks, everything else is dated Interface is slow and certainly not intuitive, tried in multiple devices all well within specs. Multiple files get downloaded and management then becomes an issue with the dated interface. Sad I paid the money for it but live and learn. Plenty other apps at half the price with updated, consistent usability. Just tried LocusMaps, excellent interface, works consistent, easy to manage maps, connects to fitness devices, works for hiking, biking, customized dashboards.
Used to work great Unable to delete runs and unable to export data. Wish there was a rollback to older version or new fix
Been fighting with this app for 2 years. What does that say? It's one of 2 apps that are capable of GPS enabled topographic maps without a data connection. Gaia GPS is great when it works. Whenever I download maps of offline use, the app gets crashy. When it fails, it no longer works and is unrecoverable. In order to re-install, I have to take out the external SD card and put it in a PC in order to delete the android\com.trailbehind.gaiagps.pro folder from SD1, then I can start over. I fight with it because I need it to work.
Overpriced & under-developed Would like ability to edit routes from PC, upload pics a little larger than 10mb, more accurate elevation & ascent values, decreased battery usage by half, fix the disappearing top menu when starting app, and fix track cropping after saving a trip. This app could be great someday but atm the hassle isn't worth the cost.
