From posts in the general discussion, three years ago the Gaia GPS Android app used to use ellipsoid elevation, then it was corrected in Version 7.0.11 to be the height above the earth's surface (geoid).
It appears that the original bug is back on Gaia GPS Android app. The Gai Apps is consistently displaying about 95 feet too low, as compared to Google Earth reading for my location, the Gaia Topo map for my location, the Accurate Altimeter App, and my friend's Gaia App on IOS.
At this location the difference between the ellipsoid elevation is and the Ortho Height is -95 feet (ellipsoid is lower).This corresponds to the error I am seeing on Gaia App.
It would be good if this feature could be corrected. It would be a wonderful improvement if there was an option to use Location Based elevation using GPS location and the Gaia Topo data. It seems this would be much more reliable in many cases.
