    celsortolan I agree. Is there a way to have waypoint names always show (in addition to icons) on iOS devices as well as print feature at Gaiagps.com?

    Please add a display waypoints names option! I really miss this feature that I used all the time on my Garmin!

    Please add more waypoint icons.

    Since this is a trail / wildness map - adding more of this type.

    I don't plant to mark where I had coffee or ate a burger.  

    I would like to mark bridge or stream crossing, fishing hole, bench, mine, cave, trail junction,  ect

    Thanks for the updates

    I would agree that a larger waypoint library is needed. Specifically for fire/SAR ops. Incident command post, staging, div breaks etc. there’s a common symbology already existing , just needs added. How about some option to import user created symbols?

    Thanks for your consideration

    Agree with this, or to just show some points. I fish in remote places with friends and we had to create our own physical map and names for islands/areas so we know where each other is located by radio. If we use the GAIA app, we have to either label things with waypoints and then click into each waypoint to see where we are (then the other person has to do it as well), or use the physical map. 

    It would be nice to even bypass the waypoints and just put text labels on things. That or just show labels for points, but only some points (so my map doesn't get too cluttered). Maybe include an option on the waypoint to "Show text on map" so that some show and some don't. 

    It's fine to click into a waypoint to see the details of a fishing hole (most of what we mark), or mark the rocks for safety purposes, but for looking at the map we need some text to show all the time. Also, is there a search functionality? The area we fish is quite large and quite remote.

    This is what we currently use, we labeled all of these points over the years so we can find each other by using the radio. It's not had to look at a waypoint to call out over the radio where you are, but it's hard for the person trying to find you to figure out where you are. This would make it so much easier.

    Can everyone upvote the post so that more people at GAIA see it and consider it for the queue?

    this is the number one thing stopping me from using gaia. 

    been using galileo on iOS and its been great. there are some features i want from gaia, but the missing waypoint names on the map are a deal breaker :(
