    It would also be great to be able to open kmz files directly with the app

    Gaia GPS does accept KMZ import of tracks, waypoints, and routes. If you are having an issue importing a file into the app, please click “Submit a Request” above and include a copy of the KMZ file.

    Problem is with Gaia. When I try to open a kmz file with Gaia from FX Explorer I get the following message: the selected app does not support operating an item using a Content URI. As of late 2018 Google has required apps to only use Content URIs for opening files. You may need to update the target application or contact the developer.

    Thanks for the update. Currently, Gaia GPS just supports imports from your SD card, email, Dropbox, or Google Drive. Sorry for the confusion.

    Google has a very robust api for their maps.  Why not just allow someone to connect to their google account and share everything between them?   If I create a waypoint in google maps it shows up in Gaia and vise versa

    I agree with kc7fic.  "If I create a waypoint in google maps it shows up in Gaia and vise versa"  I have hundreds of google maps saved locations that i would like to see in GaiaGPS, but would like to have a live connection and not be forced to do periodic export/import.

    I was just searching to see if there was a way to "sync" my Google Maps saved locations and Gaia and came across this.  I agree with kc7ficn and Benji.  This would be awesome.

    Just so folks reading this thread know, there is a website that will convert your Saved Lists, which are generated by Google Takeout, into a json file and csv files.  It takes the content URL and adds the Gps coordinate for you. It can also generate a .csv file with GPS Coordinates that you can use to load into a Google My Maps map. The website is: https://exportgooglemaps.com/

    I did takeout on my saved lists and then I run the unziped csv files through exportgooglemaps.com to create a geocoded csv file.  I then upload that csv file into a google maps my map.  Once loaded you can then export a kml/kmz file from my maps that can be read by gaiagps. That what I am currently doing so that my saved lists are both in my maps and in gaiagps.
