Went down hill. Used this for years with great results as a premium member. The past several months, however, I have been unable to either sync or add new maps. I finally bit the bullet, Uninstaller and reinstalled (meaning i now have to re download all my maps from several years use). Now, however I can not even change root download folder to SD card. When I try, the gai ap just minimizes and dose not give me that option. Not to mention sync and new map download still doesn't work.

Very good, accurate tracking and has plenty of features even in the free app. I rarely do this, but I paid for the premium version because there were some tools that I needed that weren't available in the free version. My only suggeation for the app would be the addition of a tool that shoots a line in the direction you're looking. Would make it easier to certify that what I think I'm looking at on the map is what I think it is.

I've been using gaia for years. It's the best mapping system I've found for offroad and overland driving. The move to a monthly subscription by merging with a company I never heard of and don't care about is a bad move. Not sure I'm going to renew my subscription when it's up. I don't do monthly subscriptions in general - they're financially a bad idea. I much rather pay for period x and nothing renews automatically. For the app 5 stars, for the new premium model: 0 stars.
