I recently returned from a backpacking trip in Utah's Dark Canyon. This was the first trip that I have used Gaia GPS. I was favorably impressed with it. However, there are two (advanced?) features that I would like to see added. The first feature is sort of a merge of a track log and waypoint. I would like the ability to mark a feature (trail jct,, ruins, etc.) in my track log. This "marking" would include all the current waypoint information, plus the distance along the track log. For example: I leave camp and start a track recording, two miles later a come to a junction. I would like to label this point in the track log with a title and icon (just as is the case with a waypoint) and the distance from the start of the track log (camp). Once I finish a track recording, I can then view the track log along with it's marked features and the distance along the track. I might get something that looks like this:
- 0.0 (Camp Icon) Camp 2
- 2.0 (Jct. Icon) Junction to Lost Canyon
- 3.7 (Arch Icon) Natural Arch
The second feature that I would like to see will be described in a separate submission.
