Suggested Changes - Profile View and More Options for Editing a Route!!!
I love gaia, but would love it even more if they made a couple small changes.
- Profile Views - if you've ever used Guthook, you might know how amazing the profile view is. Sometimes, especially on steep ascents or descents, the profile view is more valuable than a plan view. You can review your route showing the profile but it does not give you your location on said profile AND there is no ability to zoom for more detail which is significant when your route is 100+ miles long! I think this is a worthwhile change. And it would be even more useful if you could see your way points on the profile as well. For example, you know that you way point for a water source is 0.5mi but that doesn't mean shit because it's actually 1000 vertical feet. To be able to look up at elevation information is extremely useful. Also, to zoom-in to the window like Guthook does to see how many vertical feet along your route totals for the day is another amazingly useful tool from Guthook, so bring it over! Take a note from Guthook, please!
- Route Editing - Let's say you draw your entire route and then you want to split it up by day... impossible. Take a note from CalTopo here, Gaia! The edit options for the routes are way nicer and we would love those options here on Gaia!
If you made these two changes then I know you would convert CalTopo elitist to Gaia, so get to work, PLEASE!
