    Agreed. Nat Geo TOPO had this feature more 20 years ago

    Is there any update on when  GaiaGPS will allow us to adjust line thickness on the web interface? All other mapping platforms allow this.

    Agree.   Very easy to get the existing Gaia track lost in the mix with other map features in the background.

    Agree. I also like to set my route line type to dotted or dashes.

    1) A friend of mine was able to transfer a google map to GaiaGPS preserving the multiple trail colors. On my android phone, I am unable to do this - they are all red now. Can you fix this problem?   2) It would be very helpful to be able to thicken one trail line to separate it from the others -in my area's case, to designate the official blazed trail.     3) Also, in my area's case, the official trail has white blazes. Can you add white, black, gray,etc. to your palette, similar to the capability on Google Maps?

    Hey dgiffer,

    1) It is possible to maintain the color of the tracks from Google Maps by importing the KML / KMZ file on gaiagps.com instead of in the app. Here's how:


    2) In the Android app, you can adjust track widths in Settings under Map Controls. Currently, it is only possible to change the width of all tracks or the active track.  

    3) We do have plans to add additional colors to our palette, but I don't have an ETA on when that will happen.

    Still waiting for this obvious feature. And many other features we've been asking for years about!

    This feature has been available in Android for over a year now. I don't remember when it started but it in there.

    Setting>Map controls>scroll down 3/4 of the page.

    But not for Apple products like Ipad.  Also not on a pc.

    Also, it only allows UNIVERSAL line thickness changes... you can't have one (very important) line to be thick, and make the other (useful but less central) line thin to get them out of the way.

     

    But what do we know about what would be useful... we're only the people using the product.
