App Reviews

  • Coverage and Map Definition

    By D E King
    I am extremely happy with the quality of maps and that I can use the app everywhere without loss.
  • Will become GREAT with Apple CarPlay support!

    By Emmittfan22
    This app is on the verge of becoming legendary in my book! Once they get Apple CarPlay support they will have achieved that level!
  • Sellouts

    By Macdunet
    The app itself is okay. But It’s a shame to be calling you App Gaia and be pro hunting. The last thing hikers want is to be on the same path as a hunter, so do animals. Killing animals for sports is the opposite of what our planet needs. Now I’m just going to ditch this app and stay with ViewRanger or Hiking project that work better.
  • The Best Hiking Companion

    By American Hip-fan
    I use this everywhere... local parks, wilderness, even in Costa Rica. Always great, never glitches, and absolutely indidpensible.
  • Excellent

    By Marin Hiker
    This is the app for hiking that I have always wanted to fine. I’m just using the free version and I find that it’s distance and altitude gain are wonderfully accurate, which is more than I can say for other apps. I also really appreciate the altitude profile and time/speed data. Best of all is the ability to name and save hiked routes. I feel very sorry for those people who cannot figure out how to use it as it doesn’t get easier than this.
  • Not accurate what’s going on?

    By ark198978
    Sitting in a chair and it’s counting as I’m walking??? I hiked 2.5 miles and rested for 10 min and now it says 3.5 and counting. Is this using gps or is it programmed to count miles based on time elapsed??? I don’t get it. Needs to be fixed ASAP!!!
  • Great in Costa Rica!

    By Dave Ahlers
    I’ve been a regular user hiking in the Pacific Northwest, but recently had a chance to use it on a hike in Costa Rica. It’s difficult to impossible to find topo maps anywhere in the country, there are very few actual trails which means a lot of bushwhacking, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that Gaia had topo maps in enough detail that we could navigate without getting lost. There were moments where we had no indication of direction or where we were other than from the GPS due to the dense jungle.
  • Easily one of the best.

    By joose
    Title says it all. I’ve had a subscription for a couple of years now and never regret it. The overlays are invaluable to planning and route finding/making. Seriously download it and pay for the extras. All the way worth it.
  • Used all the time to hike Colorado 14ers

    By Nate9797
    Easy to import GPX files fine Throw phone in airplane mode and then confident using Gaia to do my long hikes.
  • LOVE but map names are confusing

    By cour10e22
    This is really a fantastic app! The only area of opportunity is making the names of the different maps easier to understand and differentiate. They have similar names and I have a hard time remembering which is which.
