As an offroad motorcycle user, my suggestion would be to have the ability to move the "Stats Bar" to the bottom of the screen instead of at the top. When riding, I'm more interested in where I'm going vs where I've been; having the bar at the top of the page blocks the view track ahead.
Another helpful option for vehicle use would be putting the positional arrow in the lower 1/3 of the screen so you can see the track ahead and associated upcoming turns. When traveling at speed in a vehicle, I'm more concerned with what's up ahead then what I've already traversed.
Also, some kind of Zoom in/out button options would be nice. When I ride during the winter, I can't "pinch to zoom" wearing most winter gloves, so I have to use a stylus. Sometimes I have to do that in the summer too if the gloves I'm wearing aren't touchscreen compatible. Without zoom buttons, I can't even use the stylus, so I always have to take a glove off which gets a little irritating especially if it's raining because a wet hand is hard to get back inside the glove.
Otherwise I'm loving the new App! The map smoothing is much better and the user interface is much cleaner. I've been using Gaia for about 3yrs now and have converted a number of my riding buddies from Garmin over to the App and they couldn't be happier. Keep up the good work!
