    For what it is worth, I am using a Dual XGPS160 with my WiFi only ipad, works great and have yet to have any issues with the Gaia app. Well worth the investment on the components to make a solid GPS set-up.

    Assuming you have no internet and are totally relying on the XPGS, do you get a clear picture when you zoom in?

    I use UTM's instead of lon/lat.  I notice that both the Dual XGPS and Bad Elf can't be set to display UTM.  Will UTM still be displayed and recorded on Gaia?

    Yes, you can still view UTM coordinates in Gaia GPS by:

    • open Gaia GPS > Settings > Units >Coordinate Type > UTM Coordinates

    Great! I'm glad the conversion is automatic according to my set-up....

    Thanks!
