    A few notes on tracks vs routes:

    • A Track is a path which is recorded on your device as you walk it. More information on Tracks: Record & Resume Tracks


    You can view routes in the backcountry by using the Gaia GPS app on your phone. 

    If you create a route on the web, you may need to sync your app with the website to see the route in the Saved menu in the app.

    Snap to trail routing doesn't work offline yet, but if you create the route on the web and sync to the app, snap to trail will work.

    If you have any further questions, please contact Support here.

    Why be so limiting?  It is not this way in other mapping tools. Tracks are simply a series of points.  Routes are a series of waypoints that can be navigated.  Tracks can be created anytime or using a device.

    In many other mapping tools (google earth, basecamp, etc) both tracks and routes can be created manually ahead of time and then displayed on the map or the device.

    I like the idea of GAIA on how it seamlessly syncs from web to device, but I am finding too many limitations that make it unsuitable for my mapping purposes.  I will cancel my subscription and check back in a year or so to see if the tool has evolved.

    I think what you want is already available in the app, and I have emailed you directly to clarify. Email will be easier than going back and forth on the forum.
