Lock Track Up / Route Up

Not planned

    Wow!  I totally disagree with the "Track up is a very intuitive way to navigate a route..." statement.  Totally depends upon the user.  I ALWAYS have my map with North up and so I find Track Up very disorienting. I agree, however, that it would be good to be able to reliably "lock in" which ever mode you want.

    EVERY vehicle I own including my Indian motorcycle and Chevy Tahoe - along with my wife's KIA (not to mention google maps on our smart phone) have "navigate up" as the default - why would they all design their systems this way if it were not the most popular and useful of all navigation modes.

    +1 on this feature request. Doesn't make any sense not t have it.

    +1, this is extremely difficult to deal with on a motorcycle mount with gloves on.

    Gaia... any updates on this?  This should be a fairly easy fix to a pretty critical feature.  When do you expect to have it ready?

    This one is a deal breaker for me also. It seems any time you touch the map screen it toggles the mode. Extremely annoying. Any plans to implement the ability to lock the screen in the mode of your choice (course up\north up)? It's a standard feature on most stand alone gps's. Why not GAIA?

    I'm just about right behind you. I love having the large tablet screen but the track up thing is rapidly becoming a deal breaker.

    We don't have plans for anything like this at the moment, but I do have an open request for this feature and I've added your votes.

    Thanks for suggesting this. We will update here if this feature becomes available.

    Whether "track up" or "north up", or some other orientation, the point is that Gaia should have the option to lock the user's preference in place.   I'm trying to survey and evaluate trails for the USFS as a volunteer and the inability to lock my preferred tracking mode is ... annoying.

    I was using my Gaia today off roading and its frustrating that my map wont lock north. If Gaia don't fix this, I'll have to move to On X.

    Really GAIA???? After 4 years, this is still not fixed!!.   Are you just being stubborn? Since users want this, you are just not going to give it to them?  Every popular program except GAIA has this.  Is the desire to be different so strong that you will lose customers?

    I have nos stopped using GAIA at all due to the lack of this feature.  I hoped for Gaia/Outdoor to correct this fatal flaw but 4 years after it's clear they don't hear customers.  So sad.

    this remains a blocker.  i use gaia as a backup in my pocket when riding my motorycle.  but i cannot use it as the primary on my handlebars since it's too much of pain to always fix this with gloves on.  i would love to make gaia my primary, but i'm waiting for this feature improvement.  meanwhile my garmin 700i is working great.

    Gaia appears to be unresponsive to fixing or improving this important feature. 

    Not impressed

    I'm a premium member and have a handful of Garmins. I generally have two Montanas mounted on my bars while riding in the desert. One zoomed in and the other out. I've been trying to transition to Duraforce Pros for desert riding -I have three. I just found out that Gaia does not have track up.😭. This is unbelievable as others have said. It seems so simple and intuitive. I've never used N up for active navigation.  While traveling any other way than North you have to do mental gymnastics to find your way. 

    I like everything else about Gaia but this! Gaia please add this feature!
