I strongly recommend the gaia team to reconsider deciding to not renew access to the "NeoTreks Land Use". It is by far the most versatile layer in gaia. Compared to the base gaia layer, it has much stronger terrain shading making the topgraphic landscape more easy to see at quick glance. More importantly it offers the unique characteristic of very clear color shading for private, BLM, State Forest, National Forest Service, National Wilderness, National Parks/Wildlife Refuge. The PNW is peppered with sections of alternating private, Forest Service, and BLM lands. This layer offers the only clean simple visual to understand if you're in private or federal land without completely clogging the screen with the "private land" overlay layer.
When it comes to a map for soft-roading, no other layer in gaia comes close to Neotreks. Having access to it was the primary reason for purchasing a subscription and without I will be looking for alternative means to access it when my subscription renews.
Gaia Base not showing the land use boundaries. FS line shows but with no indication as to which side is FS. Without zooming way out and checking the label. BLM/Private isn't apparent at all.
Neotrek clearly showing the land use boundaries (Green FS, Brown BLM, White Private).
