Version 1.6.2

If you love Gaia GPS, help spread the word by leaving a review. Your review will also get bumped up, when you rate a new update.

►► v1.6.2

* Fixed regression in 1.6.1 - crash if you tap on a Trail on Gaia Topo, then tap the top right menu, then tap Download Maps for Area, then Save.

* Using aggregate crash logs, we also took time to investigate the top-occurring crashes among users. These can be hard to reproduce, but happen in certain circumstances:
- of the people who've seen a crash in the last 90 days that we logged, we seemed to address 35% with these changes
- this involved fixing the top 2 crashes, and a handful of others
- fixed family of issues where the notifications at the top of the Saved table could get out of sync for some new users, then crash if buttons were clicked
- fixed crash you might see rearranging the Trip table
- fixed crash you might see exporting a KML file when not all photos had synced yet
- fixed crash you might see when downgrading the app while not on the map screen, or in other ways even when the grid was attempting to be redrawn on the map when not viewing the map
- for Japanese users, fixed viewing GPS status that could crash in some cases

Editors’ Notes

Off-the-beaten-path maps.

Great to plan routes for off-road riding

Julien velo

Downloaded the app and tested it for off-road motorcycle. The automatic tracing of a route over existing marked trails is an awesome feature that makes planning the route considerably easier than with Google Earth or Garmin Basecamp. I downloaded satellite image and usgs topo maps of the area I was riding in so I didn't need to rely on having network or not during the ride. Battery usage was reasonable and it can certainly last for 12 hours or more with every app turned off and airplane mode. The website is fairly good too. Only small complain is that the web app folder system is a little convoluted - it's not obvious at first where things go at first. The mobile app occasionally crashes while managing files, yet nothing was lost. Compare to a Garmin gps unit the only limitation is the device's gps accuracy and recording rate but it's no issue for off-road riding/driving, likely not an issue for hiking neither.

Go-to Navigation APP

s20055

This quickly became my go-to navigation APP. Accuracy, ease of use, great assortment of map layers...perfect APP for all of my outdoor activities. I use this APP exclusively for hiking, mountaineering, backpacking and now hunting. The Developers frequently provide timely updates and tweaks that continue to improve the APP. I have permanently retired the GPS and now only use this APP with a paper map and compass as a backup. I have found the clarity on an iPhone 6s to be superb. Downloading maps for offline use is quick and easy. So easy in fact that I don’t feel a need to accumulate downloaded information; use it, delete it...download again if needed. Thanks Gaia for constantly making improvements!
