    This would be a really helpful enhancement. I do all my route planning on an iPad, and have lots of maps downloaded there for offline use, but I don't want to waste valuable space on my iPhone by having all these maps also force downloaded on the phone. Selective map sync would be a great enhancement.

    This would be a very useful feature for me also.

    Agreed. I am using an iPad with downloaded maps for driving and an iPhone that is primarily used for recording tracks while hiking. It's a problem having to stop the map downloads on the iPhone.

    Strong support for this request.  I need different map sets on different devices, specifically iPhone vs iPad (as noted above).

    $30/yr is a fair subscription fee for what you offer.  Thanks for continuing to improve!

    Upvote on this, too for the same reasons as above mostly.

    One note, unlike the mockup I would want the option to sync to all, none, one, or a specific subset. I'm actually using GAIA on 3 devices right now so "A and B but not C" would be better than "None, A, B, C, or All"

    I agree. The need to "resume download" for large synced maps is a work-around but it would be nicer to simply select which maps sync to which devices.

    I’m a brand new user, and so far I love this app.

    BUT while I already have 24 gb of maps stored on my iPad Mini for overland navigation, I definitely do not want all that data syncced to my phone. When I launched the iPhone app I was appalled to see everything start to download.

    That is a stupid default setting!

    I need to be able to choose a much more limited map set for the phone, for local hiking. 

    Please bring us the requested Selective Sync feature. Thanks.

    Seriously? How can it assume that all of my devices have the same free space?

    I’m putting in a vote for this feature to be implemented. I’ve got this need, as well.

    Definitely need these sync improvements. Included with this feature should be the ability to select wifi-only / cellular sync. When choosing to sync maps to my device, I only want them to sync when connected to wifi. However, I want waypoints, tracks, routes, folders, etc to sync with both wifi/cellular.

    There is only a global setting for this today. Im worried to leave it on and accidentally burn through my cellular data or turn it off and have forgotten to manually download my maps.

    This would definitely help as unnecessary syncing is a waste network bandwidth.

    This would be extremely helpful.  Having the same data downloaded on all devices seriously limits the usefulness of gaia.  It means I am limited on all of my devices to whatever capacity I have on my smallest device.  I'd very much like to see this changed.
