Items Not Staying in Folders

    I have found that, often the folder organization is not properly copied to the Gaia website backup.
    If it is a layered map download only one of the layers is assigned to the folder I assigned to the entire download.
    I always have to go to the webpage listing to correct problems, not the app.
    Also the webpage map list only uses the download name, does not identify the source of each layer.

    Clarification:

    I organize items via the website platform, not the phone app.  This whack-a-mole problem occurs no matter how I organize the items:

    • via the main saved data list, selecting items and moving them to a folder;
    • via the items themselves, editing details and moving them to a folder;
    • via the database tables (for waypoints, tracks, routes, folders, etc.)

    I've been experiencing this problem as well. Exceptionally frustrating. Setup my main folder structure so i had 4 folders at the top level with a few layers of depth. Came back the next day and my top level was polluted with routes/waypoints again...

    I finally bought a paid subscription to gaia gps and then discovered this bug - it makes it basically useless, NONE of my waypoints stay in folders. I organized almost 2,000 waypoints, came back, and none of them were in the folders again. Figured maybe it was a fluke, organized a bunch again - same thing. Starting to wish I hadn't wasted my money.

    I am having the same issue, plus now when I try to refile items in folders, the folders function just doesn't work at all.  I agree it's very frustrating, as I had very organized data until Gaia dumped it all out.

    I've had this problem with GAIA for years.  I thought I was doing something wrong.  I should have about a dozen folders, instead I have a dozen pages of waypoints, tracks, routes, folders etc.   It's a freakin mess.
