I have used the original Gaia app (no yellow border) on a few generations of iPhone for years with a paid membership and as part of my local SAR organization and for personal use. Great app, few issues.
New device purchases (2018 iPad Pro) resulted in only being able to install the new (yellow border) Gaia app, and this version seems seriously buggy. I’m logged into the same account on both devices, but the more powerful iPad (new app) constantly hangs while it (re-?)downloads piles of maps it already downloaded previously, fails to show recent activity from the phone (old app) despite forcing both apps to sync (settings > account), and generally spends endless time not rendering maps or tracks. Why is the old app so responsive and the new app so useless? I have over 100 GB of free storage on my iPad available but every time I open the app it spends 30+ minutes downloading (redundant?) maps. Changes made on the phone aren’t reflected on the iPad despite syncing both apps to the Gaia mothership using the same account. Where can I get a version of the old app for my iPad? Not happy with the yellow border.
