Serious App for Serious Hikers
I hike a lot, and I'm a GPS tracking nerd. Gaia has been one of my most reliable pieces of "gear" over the past 4-5 years I've been using it. Well worth the cost. I've tried out all the serious alternatives, and while some of them are great, they don't match the feature set and reliability here in Gaia.
If you are casually interested in a GPS hiking app, AllTrails and TopoMaps+ are great options at lower price points, but if you want the best, it's definitely Gaia.
Gaia also has a very awesome web platform, and with Pro, all that syncs with your phone. This has become one of my favorite features as I plan new hikes to go on and load trail routes to my phone.
Very good topo navigation app
I've been using my iPhone to navigate in the woods for years. Over time I've used a dozen apps. So far this is the best. It's feature rich and the developers are continuously improving on the app's already solid foundation. I like that I can easily plan a trip on my iPad and the track automatically syncs to my iPhone. Tracks are easily recorded, imported from other sources and easily followed. I like the option of multiple free map sources so that you can choose the best one for the area you're going to. I also like that the trip statistics are updated in real time so you know how far you've gone and the pace you're keeping.
Best iPhone Off-road GPS!!
I hesitated to spend the $20 for several months afraid that I would dislike it and be money wasted. I wish I bought this sooner! I use this as my primary (but not only) means of navigating when backpacking. It has even worked well for off road overland Jeep travel. I have yet to use it snowboarding but I'm sure it will be great for that too. You are able to upload GPX files to it which is awesome so you can follow plotted out routes. However, it does not unpack ZIP files so you will need an app that unpacks them to the basic GPX file and then transport it into Gaia. A bit tedious but the final result is awesome! Buy It, Enjoy It!! Happy Trails!
