    I'm sorry there was an issue with moving the root folder for Gaia GPS to your SD card.

    What is the fix for this? I have the same issue with Android devices.

    I was wanting to move my cached folder to my SD card.  While searching for info on this I came across this post which is applicable to me as well.

    After changing my storage to my SD card my Galaxy Tab A slowed down and is a bit erratic when using Gaia.  Looks like I am not the only one.  Assistance would be appreciated!  Thanks.

    I'm sorry you are having an issue using Gaia GPS on your SD Card.

    This sounds like a speed issue with your SD card. Do you have another SD card you can test?

    If so, please follow these steps:

    1. Move the root folder for Gaia GPS to internal storage
    2. Format the new SD card (this will delete all the existing files)
    3. Move the root folder for Gaia GPS to your SD card
    4. Download an offline map


    Also, here is the SD card we recommend and use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IVPU786/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
