    Hi Dean,

    Thanks for using Gaia GPS. We are hoping to implement this by the end of the year. When it's finished, will update related forum posts, and you'll get a notification if you are 'following' the post.

    That's great news that it is under development. It will be a great enhancement.

     As I understand it, Avenza's widely used app does require a subscription in order to use it professionally but it is free for non-commercial consumer use. Use of the free version already allows import of geopdfs but as one of the earlier posters mentioned, it is limited to 3 maps at a time unless you upgrade to their mid-level version for consumers which removes the 3 map limit. I had been staying with the free version and simply swapped maps in and out to stay within 3 but I have recently switched to the $29.99 Plus version so now I can have dozens of my own maps. While it is a little more expensive than my GaiaGPS membership (yes, I do have both), it offers a lot of great functionality.

    iamthelizardking - you are correct about the subscription models for AvenzaPDF.  I also use the free version of Avenza.  The reason for my feature request here (and many other requests like mine) is to have the ability to get away from having to use two applications.  Having it all here in Gaia will be awesome, and as you read above - it's coming!

    I'm been using a maps app on iOS to manage georeferenced PDF maps for a long time. I think it's probably similar to Avenza, but it doesn't use a subscription model. It's called Maplets. You can find it at www.mobilemaplets.com. Not a perfect solution, but at least a workable solution until the feature is implemented in GaiaGPS.

    I’m also really looking forward to this feature.  I love Gaia but I’m stuck using it and Avenza together which is a royal pain.

    Thanks for posting.

    This feature is still on the roadmap for Gaia GPS and we are finishing up a couple projects that will lay the groundwork for this.

    Just wanted to know if this will be a feature before March 2019 so I don’t have to move Avenza for my expeditions.

    We are hoping to finish this project to import geo-referenced maps in the first half of the new year. Unfortunately, I don't have a firm ETA on if it will be available before March

    Subscribed. This will be a very important feature, especially if it can handle maps with multiple tiles.

    Friendly nag for this feature. Thanks for prioritizing this and hopefully geoTIFF!

    Has this been completed yet? This would have me switch 100% to Gaia and not rely on multiple apps

    I would really love to see GeoPDF support too.  Can you let us know where this is on your roadmap?

    The correct answer is clearly "never".  It's been a standing request with lots of support by customers for years.  Despite periodic announcements that it will be finished in the near future, it never is.  It's clearly not a high priority.  I'm sure they have lots of other things to do that are more important within the framework of their business model.  My advice: don't hold your breath, and if geo-referenced pdfs are important to your work right now, find a different solution.
