    Hi everyone, 

    I wanted to drop in with an update on this feature request. I definitely understand how importing waypoint icons with GPX files would be a helpful feature. 

    While the development team is working on improving waypoints and adding more waypoint icons, being able to import waypoint icons from GPX files is not on the roadmap for this year. 

    I really appreciate the feedback and encourage others to show their interest in this feature by upvoting this post.

    I'd like to second this user request. I build all of my maps in Google and customize my icons to visually distinguish different waypoints. Losing the custom icons when importing to Gaia makes my map less user friendly and editing waypoints one by one is time consuming. I would love to see Gaia do something to address this. Thanks!

    Agreed. I want to use Halfmile's PCT GPS data with Gaia, but I can't have all the waypoint icons as the same red pin, and there are thousands of waypoints.

    +1. Using QMapShack to design my hikes and all icons are defaulted to the black marker.

    That's an important addition if I'm going to use Gaia as my main repository. I'm surprised this isn't already possible, especially considering how long the request first was made.

    Please Gaia!

    I want to use my own choice of custom icons.

    This should really be a standard feature. Every other trip planning software allows this. Please add adding custom icons a feature.

    This along with being able to import KML or styled GPX seems like a no-brainer. I currently build maps in Caltopo as it has much better track, waypoint, and route editing and measuring features. Then I send the map to friends who use Avenza, and download the GPX or KML into GAIA for my own use.

    +1 for this feature request, I don't imagine it is a huge amount of work as already support icons in your internal DB.

    We need the ability to provide custom icons.  Give us the ability to do them ourselves and we'll upload them for others.  I need things like gates, bridges, water crossings, pump jacks (what some people would call Oil Wells), trash piles, Protein (as in a Protein Feeder for deer), tripod feeder.... I don't expect your team to be able to do all these, we can help!

    This should definitely be a standard feature.

     

    I have a gpx file of 100+ campsite waypoints on a 300 mile trail that I have no issues as relabeling in Basecamp SW with a Tent Icon in bulk, in GAIA they all show up as red points and look exactly the same as every other way point.

     

    for the premium features this is a significant gap.

    I agree also!  Not only should waypoint icons be able to be imported/exported but also the color of the route should be transferred too.  I just got done planning out a route in CalTopo that has a main route and then multiple alternate routes that I wanted in a different color to differentiate from the main route.  This could also be used if someone wants to plot out escape routes or bailout routes for emergency purposes, etc.  The different color would decrease confusion for the user following the main route.
