    I second this... So many times I have the first five minutes of my car ride from the trailhead I need to trim off my track, because oops! I forgot to stop tracking.

    This could be MUCH easier to do in the app. Great suggestions, Carl.

    I third this. I don't understand why you can crop a track on your phone but get a "You can't edit a recorded track" pop-up on the website. Makes no sense. Editing it on your computer should be easier (bigger screen--more precise, if developers enabled it) than on the phone. Please fix this!

    I would request this too. I have a Pixel phone and the way gestures work makes it almost impossible to crop on the app. Also, it is impossible on the app, when you do an out and back, to see exactly where you are cropping to, I almost always end up cropping out some of what I would like to have kept. This would be clearer on a laptop screen.

    Another big upvote for cropping tracks on the web client. It's crazy that this feature is mobile only!! Almost always my tracks are 'dirty' in that I run the record too long after getting in the car, etc. 

    MVS (bare minimum) functionality would be to simply crop tracks. Next obvious and very useful step would be to allow me to 'cut up' a track by cropping out sections in the ends as well as middle, then turn the disjoint sections into distinct tracks. This workflow is super useful when trying to organize trails after a multi-trail ride/hike.

    Still a needed feature, and still not even a hint of it. Please add this to the program.  Any update would be appreciated.

    This is a thing on Android at least. It works pretty well on the app.

    I know it's a thing on either of the mobile apps but is a pain to use in any fine detail. This in the GaiaGPS.com area for that reason, it should be on the web based app as well for easier cropping and editing of tracks.

    Yep, 3 years later and this is still brutal in the browser. Android app track cropping is Ok but what would be really useful is modifying existing tracks as opposed to only be able to create a new route to add missing track sections (dropped signal, stopped recording etc.) Not really concerned if modifying existing track removes the recorded stats as I care more about route (trail finding) than stats. This definitely seems more like and app geared to IOS than Android as features between IOS, Android and web browser are very inconsistent....ugh!

    Also seems to randomly not work in Android sometimes. Sometimes it is fine and others days even when I kill the app it won't work. I slide the slider all the way and nothing happens...definitely in need of improvement.

    I think the android cropping works fine and would love it on the website as well
