Being a licensed ham and traveling to teach all over the North American continent, i use the aprsdroid app for tracking and messaging when in areas with digipeater access but no cell service. I also do disaster relief work and provide medical education to disaster responders.
Integrating APRSdroid with Gaia GPS would make your great app (both apps) even better.
When in groups in remote areas, APRS users can locate others and communicate through simplex (no need for digipeaters or repeaters), being able to see the location of other group members right on the Gaia app (with the excellent maps available) would be ideal !
APRS would be very useful for disaster responders and SAR teams. Integration with quality nav systems is the logical next step.
Please consider this, Backcountry Navigator just came out with APRSdroid integration that is still in beta,
