  • Great app.

    By Jeffpilot
    Use it on backcountry trails every time. Really helped us from getting lost on the Mojave trail.
  • Not reliable

    By Nicholem2000
    This supposedly is supposed to work without cell service but I’m doubting it. I did a short 3 mile hike today and tried to track using this app, it dropped the gps signal over a dozen times so I suspect the tracking is off. Glad I got this subscription as a gift and didn’t have to pay for it.
  • Lol best gps I used - better than dedicated gps devices

    By Down river girl
    Been using this app for several years. I pay for the annual subscription and it’s worth every penny. I use this app for trail running and backpacking mainly. I have and iPhone and when out in spotty cell service areas I turn my phone on airplane mode and this app works great as long as you have the maps downloaded earlier. Having the gps app on the phone gives you the modern touch screen and convince that the other dedicated devices (garmin) are still struggling to replicate. The phone is something I already have and the battery in my iPhone last a long time. I also like being able to use the app on my computer and plot/estimate plan hikes and runs. It will give you distance and elevation which are things I like to know before going out on long runs in areas I never been. I can’t say enough great things about this app, it’s great!
  • Gaia Professional

    By Love Gaia
    You need to create a Gaia professional program so people that do this for a living can print large high resolution custom maps. What I can print off my screen is worthless even for a day trip. Don’t get me wrong, I love Gaia but I would pay more for a better computer software.
  • Very handy

    By caykend
    Great for keeping track of hiking routes. Also helpful for marking locations such as property corners and determining the Lat-Long coordinates for those points.
  • Perfect for hiking in US and Europe.

    By Markfward
    Everywhere I go it seems the maps include every little road and trail with very accurate tracking of my position.
  • Tremendous App!

    By j7s
    Have been using gaia gps for about a week or so and really enjoy the program. There’s a learning curve . . . but it’s well worth the time spent. I’m actually planning day trips for both motorcycling & hiking for this spring & summer. Having the maps on my phone & available to use do what you want or need is huge! The ease of plotting waypoints & linking them with photos and notes is very helpful too. This app does a lot of things that google maps & Waze can not. Definitely looking forward to using this more after winter rolls by.
  • Awesome!

    By TXNative
    Great alternative to Rever!
  • Subscription fees for downloading free maps

    By Imagination to reality
    Regardless of which pay option you choose Gaia is charging you to download free maps like OpenStreetMap. Not all maps are free of course and software maintenance and updates needs to be paid for. Gaia needs to better describe what they are charging for.
  • I like this app!

    By Huntingfool
    This is a very good app. What would make it great would be more and older historical maps!
