Time Recording on Tracks

    It is possible to export the track and then use another program to see the time stamp recorded at each point along the track.  However you can get pretty close within GAIA:

    On the web GAIA interface (I don't know if this works on the mobile app or not)  - select the track and open the details page.  Then go to the graph below the map and change the x axis to time (I think default is distance). Move your pointer along the graph while watching the map.  When the indicator on the map is at the point of interest, the window over the graph should give you the time and date when at that point.  If you zoom in on the map the resolution of the point of interest gets better and so your estimate of the time is better.  If you zoom way in the resolution is great and you can get a very precise estimate of when you were there.

    I'm new to Gaia and so far it's exceeded my expectations.  But how did you change the x-axis to time?  I'm clicking and double clicking but it won't change.

    Here's what works for me for the entire process, using my desktop Windows PC and Gaiagps.com: 

    1. Open Gaia in gaiagps.com. (I think it helps if you minimize the number of layers, in order to minimize clutter and keep everything as simple as possible. I use Gaia Topo.)

    2. Zoom in on the track you want to analyze.

    3. Single-click on that track. That will pull up an information panel on the left of the screen.

    4. Scroll to the bottom of that info panel until you see "Open Details Page".

    5. Single-click on "Open Details Page".

    6. Gaia will open a new page in your browser. This is the "Details Page". At the top of that new Details Page is a copy of your map. Below the map is a graph. On the right of the graph is a drop-down box from which you can select either "distance" or "time" as the X-axis. 

    7. Click on "Time".

    8. Now, if you hover the cursor over the graph and move it from side to side you will see the graph show the date and time (gray font at the top of the graph) in addition to other information. On the map above the graph, a black dot will move along your track, showing your position at the time indicated on the graph.

    9. Roll the cursor straight up and single-click on the black dot. A new info panel will appear, showing "marked location" and coordinates. Those coordinates can be copied to the clipboard. 

    Hope that helps. Good luck!
