I have only used Gaia GPS (on an iPhone 5s) a few times, so I'm still learning about it.
Recently, I did Add Waypoint (My Location) at the traihead (at my car, specifically), then hiked without recording and in Airplane Mode.
At my turnaround point I did Guide Me (to the trailhead waypoint), and then followed the guidance back to the waypoint.
When I arrived back at the car, the app said that I still had about 300' to hike.
I did not move the Waypoint. At least, I did not intentionally move it.
Is it possible this inaccuracy is due to user error somehow, or due to inaccuracy in the phone's gps?
I welcome any suggestions.
