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. I would give it five stars but the search feature, to find a place by name, is completely useless. It doesn't give a list of search results but rather relocates the map center to the one place name it's found and that place is usually somewhere on the east coast, when where I'm searching is the west coast.
The power that this app packs into the iPhone is mind blowing
I first started using Gaia GPS on my iPod Touch, where offline maps are necessary. You get access to a wide variety of detailed topo and street maps. Accessing them is simple and you can save quite a large section that can be zoomed-in for complete details without a data connection. And you get Canadian topos too (yeah!)
And with my iPhone 7, it is much more useful, even when I am in the mountains, far away from any connection. The feature list is impressive whether you want route tracking or navigation. The developers are super-responsive and are constantly adding new features; truly an app made by real outdoors people for others like them.
Buy it; you won't be disappointed.
Data graphs could be more interactive
I wish the graphs were more interactive. It would be nice if I can drag my finger along a graph to see information about the point that my finger is over. For example if I am dragging my finger along the elevation graph I would like the elevation to be displayed as I drag my finger along the x axis. It would also be very nice if a graph can be made fullscreen and if the X axis scale can be modified by pinching the screen with two fingers. This way on long hikes the data is more useful. When made fullscreen the graph should be scrollable horizontally so that the user can "zoom in" by changing the x axis scale and then scroll the graph horizontally to analyze the data.
