Gaia could be the best

    one other side note. Gaia slope angle is definitely superior to caltopo, I say this based on actual field comparisons between the two. At least here in Colorado, Gaia slope shading does a much better job of showing the real life angle of terrain both specifically and generally. caltopo shading seems to seriously underestimate the overall angles.

    I agree with your points and would add two more:

    5. Ability to easily and directly import geo referenced pdf maps.

    6. Ability to download all data within any folder in gpx format for backup and use in other programs.  Not track by track, but one operation for a complete folder.
