I was wondering if we are ever likely to see UK Ordnance Survey maps in Gaia? There is an old blog post mentioning it might happen but then nothing.
I've just moved back to the UK and paid a subscription for a competitors app which has OS maps. But the app is not as good as Gaia. I would be prepared to pay a little extra for the OS maps within Gaia, I suspect other people would too because the combination of OS, IGN and Swisstopo is very useful for a lot of Europeans.
As an aside - I still ended up renewing my Gaia Premium subscription because I am often in Japan where (in my opinion) the OpenStreetMaps are not very useful. I use a custom source with the (freely available) government map data - which is the same that they use on the printed maps and I can then overlay this with other maps if I need English place names or hill shading. For me, this ability is worth the premium membership alone and it's features like these that make Gaia very flexible and unique.
use the layering and custom imports to get decent hiking maps in Japan (where the OSM are a bit of a mess in my opinion) using the governments public mapping data.
