How to quickly hide all but the current track?

    Hi,

    No option to hide all other tracks, but a way you can quickly hide sets of tracks all at once is to file them into a folder.

    Then you can control visibility at the folder level.

    For what it's worth, I'd also appreciate this (as a feature request). Or alternatively a way to bulk "hide all" and we could un-hide the one track or route that we want to see.

    I agree this would be a useful feature. I have similar spaghetti map (though yours is quite impressive!).

    I think I'm still a bit confused by the visibility. How does one control visibility at the folder level? I thought un-syncing would do it, but now I can't duplicate that behavior.

    Thanks

    To control the visibility of tracks at the folder level, you can either hide all of the items in a folder by tapping the “eye” icon for the folder or you can open the folder and toggle the visibility of each track.

    Interesting. My IOS display is graphical, and I don't see a way to produce a list like yours, Nathan, and I was hoping to show/hide the tracks in the web browser map. I'll keep poking around.

    Thanks

    The Saved menu in the new Gaia GPS app can be customized to display your data as “Collapsed” or “Expanded” rows. What you see in the screenshot above is the “Collapsed” option. You can access these options by tapping the Action icon (3 dots in the upper right of the screenshot).

    You can show/hide all of your tracks on the gaiagps.com main map at once through the Overlay menu, however, there isn't a way to choose what is hidden and what is not hidden.

    I also would love this feature. I think a long-press on the eye icon could give the option to "Hide all but current track" and "reveal all" to bring them all back again in one click. 

    Hide/show by folders is a great option, but I also have many folders for different tracks and it would take 20+ clicks to hide them and another 20 to bring them all back.

    ideally would be able to show just one reference track while creating a new route, and to then be able to show only the recorded track while riding the new route (hiding all the old ones or just showing the planned route) quickly.

    This is a GREAT app, BTW!

    The ability to hide all tracks in one touch and just show one track would be awesome!  Also the other way around would be nice too.  Sometimes its nice to see all tracks except one that is random spagetti.  MotionX has this feature and its very convenient.  GAIA, please make this feature available to us.

    As an early adapter of GAIA I have many many tracks.  I have put them all in folders, including one folder named "need to file".  This does allow me to turn off visibility by folder.

    I do AGREE that the ability to turn off all but current would be fantastic!

    Also, is there a way to turn off visibility in the gaiagps.com site?  I cannot find it.

    p.s. I love the app.  I have convinced many a friend and fellow hiker to use and has saved much "wander" time while hiking off trail...

    THANKS for the great job and great app!

    On gaiagps.com, you can't suppress the display of individual items, but you can hide all tracks at once from the 'Overlays' menu at gaiagps.com/map.

    I can't believe you can't hide individual tracks on gaiagps.com. That is very annoying for pre and post trip preparations. Please consider adding this in the future as of now this is not useable for me at all.

    Is there any way to force a particular track to appear above all the other "spaghetti" tracks?  Sometimes its nice to see the track in relation to all the other "spaghetti".

    I noticed that when I look at my map on the web, one particular track appears above the other spaghetti.  When I look at the same map on my iPhone, the same track is underneath the spaghetti.

    It would be nice to be able to force a track to be "on top" or maybe have a way to order the display of the tracks.  And it would also be nice if there was consistency in the display between the web and the iPhone.

    I’m still loving this app, and still desparately waiting for a way to quickly hide/show all except current tracks! However, I did find a workaround that is a bit more cumbersome, but it works. This is for the app only, not gaia.com.

    I create a master folder called “All tracks and routes”. I then make sure to file everything I create within a subfolder somewhere in there. I can click the eyeball to hide everything in there at once or show them all.

    So then when I’m working on a new route or recording a track and don’t want to see the others, I just create it outside that master folder and then I can keep everything else hidden. When I’m done with the route or track, I can move it back in to that folder with everything else.

    If I want to edit a route for later use, I just move it out of the master folder, hide the master to clear the clutter, then work on that route alone. Then I can move it back in there. 

    If I’m going to take a ride or hike on one of my planned routes, I move it OUT of the master, then hide the master (so I don’t have to look at everything else irrelevant) and follow my route. When done, I move it back in. 

    So, it’s a few more steps than ideal, but it can work.

    I have the opposite problem. I would like the ability to hide/unhide the current track. Often I am trying to follow a preloaded trail or route, and the current spaghetti trail adds confusion to an otherwise uncluttered screen.  I seldom wish to see the current track while I am hiking unless I need to retrace my steps.

    Currently, there isn't a way to hide an active track recording's track line. Sorry about that!
