    My Gaia GPS elevation values are consistently 60 feet low (Pixel 4XL). For example, Mt. Bierstadt came in at 14008 when the actual value should be 14063. Sitting here at home, Gaia GPS measures my elevation as -21 when the actual is around 66 feet. It is very annoying and disappointing. I am told it is device specific, and if they fix it for me, it will be off for everyone else. All my other elevation/altitude tools seem to work fine. Why can't Gaia GPS?

    The errors in Gaia GPS elevation gain make the whole computation of elevation gain useless.

    I recorded a track mountain biking.

    Gaia GPS = 890m elevation gain.

    Actual track = 1350m elevation gain.  Even if I pin the elevations to the map (removing altimeter errors and noise, as pinning to the map in Garmin maps reads the map from the elevation model), I still get 1350m of elevation gain.

    This is ridiculous. It's 50% more.  True that the elevation looked like this, but from now on, I wonder whether to just trust my Garmin instead of spending on my Gaia subscription.
