Please include a bug or support tool right on the map so we can submit issues or feature requests while we find things using the map. Searching doesn't always produce the best results so it would be nice to send in corrections right away because most users aren't going to a separate area to report basic informational issues. Have to use different apps for things like hiking trails because Gaia is missing a lot of them.

App has worked great. I like that I can download maps. Many places has no service and this feature solves that problem. I especially like that I can record hikes on trails that dont seem to be on any map. Best GPS app I've found Update, I've had this app for over two years and I'm still very happy with its features. It's also great when driving.

I have 3 apps that will track my hikes. I monitor distance, altitude, moving time. Gaia is the worst app of the 3. It used to work fine. But t's become unreliable. It takes up to 2 minutes for it to acquire the GPS signal. And it can lose the signal frequently and not get it back for up to 30 minutes. So a distance reading is totally wrong. The problem isn't the GPS signal. I've used all three apps at the same time, and the others never have issues. Same issue happens on two different phones.
