Hi, I have seen similar posts over the years as the one I am submitting right now.
I use and lg V60 Android phone to track my hikes using Gaia. For long hikes on a mountain, the ascent/descent numbers do seem a bit conservative. But I would also like to use Gaia for tracking my exercise hiking along a short trail we call the Hell Hill, which is all-up going up and all-down going down (no intermediate hills or valleys). This route has about a 92' elevation difference. I typically hike this down and up repeatedly to get some cardio and leg benefits, and would like to continue increasing my repetitions and be able to determine the cumulative up/down without having to keep track of the actual elevation change and the number of reps i am doing to calculate it mentally. For example, yesterday I did 12 repetitions, which should be cumulative ascent/descent of about 1080'. However, Gaia reports the stats as 75(-96) on my Android app, and 82(-100) on the web app. I understand the algorithm is doing some smoothing, but both of these are waaaayyy off. What would be nice would be to have a setting that can be adjusted to weaken the effects the smoothing algorithm a bit.
