    Please add this. Currently, I have to manually add waypoints and it is quite a chore.

    Agreed - this would be a VERY helpful feature for route planning.

    We need distance markers on the Android version of GAIA GPS. This is very frustrating not to have in the Android version. I need to know how far I have to hike on the trail, not as the crow flies. PLEASE ADD ASAP.

    Thanks for posting and sharing your feedback.

    I can see how this feature would be helpful but unfortunately, don't have an ETA on this feature as current projects are focused on updating the mapping framework in the Android app.

    In the meantime, you can view the distance you have hiked by adjusting one of the variables in the Stats Bar to be Distance.

    Yes this is super frustrating just bought an android tablet for this but the distance markers are not available. Can you update on the roadmap for this? Been at least a year since the request was made.

    Please add this.  I was very disappointed I couldn't add distance markers after I paid for this subscription. I saw my buddy do it on his iphone and just assumed it would be the same on Android. I won't be renewing my subscription. when it expires until you get this added, and I actually regret having made this purchase.  Thanks.

    I'm sorry this feature is not available in the Android app - we definitely understand the value in adding this feature but like Nate said we are currently focused on updating the mapping framework in the Android app. After this project, we will be able to work on adding new features for Android and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

    I would also like to have this feature for android phones. It looks like this has been requested for over a year and from your comments it doesn't seem to be coming anytime soon. When you add features for one do it for the other also.

    This HAS to be available on Android. I'm paying a lot of money for this app with the added maps & expect to get just as much as iOS users.

    I just cancelled my subscription due to lack of action on distance markers for Android.

    Users on Reddit /ultralight are starting to take notice of the lack of features for Android. Maybe we can get enough on board cancelling their subscriptions so these people pay attention. I'm personally going to blast them every chance I can.

    I've said it before, for years we the community who actually plan and use GAIA, have been offering suggestions and asking for an equal platform to iOS,  GAIA, if acting on some of theses suggestions (waypoints and position on the elevation profile, range rings etc) could have been a superb app.  I honestly don't know what direction GAIA is going, it seems to be the jack of all trades, master of none.  Android is severely lacking, route planning is abysmal, there is not a track edit option, the web based folder structure and handling of bulk items is a joke.  I'll say it again, come on GAIA!
