  1. Desktop (OSX and Windows) software for map downloading and planning routes

    Make a desktop version that links via bluetooth to GPS in phone. The advantages would be a larger screen with with more disc space for larger maps. The laptop could be used for online navigation in an automobile.

    • French ign topo

      Having French ign topo maps was very useful!!!
      I've seen that unfortunately it 's not available anymore since September 2015.
      Could you please consider it as a priority for French users :)

      • Make night mode that automatically changes with light.

        Make the night brightness and color light reactive so that it changes to night mode automatically as the environment gets darker.

        • Merge Tracks

          Need a way to just merge tracks. Sometimes the app stops and starting again starts a new track. Just need to be able to merge these tracks into one.

          • Option for "guide me" to follow Track

            When following tracks, often I would like to know the distance to a waypoint if I follow the track. Currently "guide me" gives distance as a straight line to the point.

            • Google Maps

              Please give a choice between Apple maps and Google maps for driving directions. Apple maps OFTEN leads me in the wrong/bad direction and is a time waster.

              • Manage multiple waypoints/tracks, add multi-select for deletion/folders/export/color

                Be able to move multiple waypoints to a folder at once and also be able to select and export waypoints all at once (maybe in a folder?) rather than having to export one at a time.

                • Log start time and end time in trip stats

                  The start and end times are not logged by the app. I would like the start time/date and end time/date to be logged in the trip stats for all tracks.

                  • Add smoothing to improve elevation and speed data

                    The elevation and max speed data are often spectacularly different from reality or even between different traversals of the same track. For example, I periodically cycle a 38 mile route that your new route creation tool shows as having a ~900 ft total ascent, which I believe is correct. The app, though, will show a total ascent of anywhere from 2500-5000 feet depending on the particular ride. Similarly, the max speed is also totally unreliable. I've had rides where the app said my max speed was 85-90 mph, when in reality it was probably no more than 35-40.

                    Presumably both…

                    • Distance to waypoint

                      Would be great (maybe not possible) if when looking at a waypoint it would give trail distance to that waypoint instead of straight line distance.

                      • Videos That Demonstrate How To Use All The Fearures-Videos need to be thorough and not too quick

                        There are few videos demonstrating how to use Gaia to its full potential. Further, the videos that exist are severely abridged. We can get more use out of Gia if there were good instructional videos. It would also help the product sell better.

                        • Split Tracks Feature

                          Using a similar interface to the Crop off the Edit function for a track, let me slide a marker along the recorded track timeline, and then click a button to "split" the track into two parts from where I pick. This should result in:
                          1) The current track I'm editing to be cropped at the indicated timeline point (slider)
                          2) A new track to be created with the split point as e Start, and the remaining half of the split mapped out.
                          3) Any pictures associated to the second half of the split should also be migrated to the new…

                                Export to iCloud Drive to simplify importing and exporting files such as waypoints and track files between iOS and PC instead of iTunes file sharing. Works great for other apps.

                                  Let us convert tracks to routes, and add a user-run database of routes :)

                                  Would also be cool to integrate a Peakfinder type of functionality.

                                  • Property lines

                                    I use Gaia GPS for hunting, and fishing. I would like to be able to find easy way to download property lines as an overlay on any Gaia GPS map. I stress "easily". As at this time it seems difficult to pull County GIS maps, and other available maps like Hunt on X maps. This would be an extremely valuable feature for a lot of users.
