    Hi Everyone, 

    I just wanted to pop in with an update. Adding GeoPDF imports is something we are still excited about adding - while this is on the roadmap, the timeline has changed and is behind the originally predicted release date. 

    At this time, we are refraining from giving another ETA on this project. 

    Thank you everyone for your patience and feedback on different ways to improve the app.

    Gaia support: between Avenza and, more importantly, Caltopos upcoming app that supports and even improves MVUMs you may be losing some business.

    Is there any updates on this or is there a work around to import PDFs?

    Would still like to see this feature and not have to use 2 different products at the same time...

    This feature is critical for Gaia GPS IMO.  With this, I am free to switch over completely to Gaia from Avenza.

    I would prefer this on the website, not on iOS. 

    It seems like every state DNR and the US Forest Service all publish these PDFs and there is no way to use them in Gaia.  I don't understand why I need to go to different websites, download a potentially crowdsourced inaccurate track, and upload it.  This in the face of having official maps from trusted sources that I could just upload here.  This is a real loss.

    I am just adding my voice to the chorus. This is increasingly becoming a must-have feature. You have created a great piece of software that I use regularly but increasingly with frustration planning trips because of this lacking feature.

    Adding my voice to this issue. I can't believe it's been over 3 years, and Gaia hasn't figured out a viable solution to this feature request, which has the highest number of votes. WTF is going on? Get yer shit together, Gaia, or another app will scoop you.

    Hello, just checking in to see if there's any updates since a year ago on adding direct import of georeferenced maps directly into Gaia. Thanks!

    In case anyone at Gaia is reading this, I'm still waiting for GeoPDF support.  All the maps on my favorite mountain biking website (www.evergreenmtb.org) are GeoPDF and I can't view them in Gaia.

    I'm weighing whether to continue using GAIA or jump ship to CalTopo based on this and other bundled features.  I'm not going to pay for multiple mapping platforms.

    I would love to hear an update from GaiaGPS on the status of this, even if you don't have an ETA. This is a big one for a lot of the people I work with, and they are switching to Avenza for that reason. I'm not really a fan of Avenza, but the ease of working withothers who use the same platform may force a move for me.

    Wow, I just saw the official official comment at the top of this thread that GeoPDF support is scheduled to get added in 2022.  Hurray!  I've been waiting years for this feature!

    For 5 years we've been hearing "it's on the road map". Don't get your hopes up, folks.

    In the meantime.... both Avenza and GAIA play a role in my workflow. They both provide a valuable service, and I'm happy to pay money for services rendered.

    GAIA has features that I like (private land boundaries), and I just don't care any more about whether or not they add geopdf capability. I have a million apps on my phone- it's not a hardship to use two different ones for different GPS needs.

    Might be true, but this is the first time in a really long time that an official answer has come.

    As one of the requesters a long time ago, I’m encouraged by their response. Clearly they have been innovating the layers of late (trailforks, etc) so let’s continue to voice the needs for GeoPDF import.

    Thanks Gaia, prove the detractors wrong and deliver this capability!
