    Sorry to be picky... When I log into this help site it uses the first portion of my email address as a username. I changed my name, then when I log back in it changed it to the old name. Something similar happened when I registered for the app. I've contacted support and they have resolved this, I think. It might be a good idea to let people pick a username upon registering (I'm not a lover of private information being made public).

    Thanks for posting.

    It is possible to view the progress of your offline map downloads in the app. Check these articles for steps on how this is done: iOS/Android.

    You can share a link to your hikes by creating a shareable link. This can be done in the app or on gaiagps.com:

    Also, thanks for your comments about usernames in the help center. I'll discuss this with the team.

    Thank you for the reply and the links. I've edited this post because I encountered some strange behaviour fixed by rebooting the phone. When I closed the app, it continued to say the map was downloading but it wasn't doing anything. When I opened the app, it was downloading something but it never finished and I couldn't see the progress.

    After rebooting the phone, I can now see the app is downloading the map and it shows the progress correctly in the downloads folder.

    For others facing similar issues with downloading large tracks, Nathan replied via email prior to responding here and was very helpful. He explained to me that you can select a track and download a map around it, which is pretty neat! I am downloading a larger area beyond the track, so I still think it would be cool if you could select multiple squares to download or draw what you want but this solves most of it for me. Additionally, being able to select multiple tracks and then "download around tracks" would save a bit of time as opposed to going through them one by one (I have a lot of tracks to download).

    In regards to sharing hikes, I believe that generates a link for each hike but you cannot share a map with all the hikes as per a fusion table? Perhaps I've misread something.

    As a general navigation app, it seems underrated and other than the download problem (now mostly resolved with the "download around track feature"), it works well. I appreciate the replies. I will try think of some more ideas your team might like :).

    I've updated my previous post to include hyperlinks for the articles on how to check the download status of your offline maps.

    To also share an offline map for your route, you will need to file the route and an offline map for the area in a folder and then use the Shared Folder feature to share the contains of the folder (iOS/Android).
