    New user here (but many years TopoMaps+) ; same problem creating driving route on forest roads. Snaps to road ok but backtracks to nearest hiway access , snaps to it for many miles then back into forest road at nearest access point to complete the route to destination.

    unbelievable bad code work and then to release it anyway . . . ?

    Same here.  Really frustrating. Tried every setting and removing layers and still won't work.

    I'm having the same issue even on a trail that I had previously created a route on with no problem. I'm using the right layer and have it set to Hiking mode.

    I just purchased this app today I have watched loads of tutorials and I am doing the same thing as they are doing on the tutorials and I can't get it to snap. I have made sure I'm on hiking and only have the layers set to Gaia Topo. Just will not snap no matter what trails, roads or anything else. Very frustrating!

    Same issue here, just started noticing this the past couple days. Previously I had no issues getting the route to snap to the trail.

    The Create Route feature in Gaia is useless (that's the nicest term I can think for it). As others have observed, it frequently will not snap to the most obvious route. I've had it snap to a route that was miles long when I clicked on a point, when that point was less than 1/2 mile away along a trail, with no way to change it.

    Additionally, sometimes the tool will snap to a trail, while other times it does straight line.

    Lastly, unlike what their popup says, Ctrl-Z will NOT do an undo. You must click the Undo button on the screen.

    I've only tried creating a route today, 10/25/2022. In reading other comments, and given the timing of the recent Create  Route "update", I'd guess that this update introduced numerous bugs into the feature.

    If GaiaGPS cannot fix its Create Route feature, I will not renew my premium subscription and will look for an alternative.

    Same issue here. Trying to create a route using 2 connecting trails in my desktop browser. The first trail is snapped to but it skips the connecting one and draws a straight line to the end instead.
