Does the route/track show Ascent/Descent or Elevation Gain/Loss?

    Thanks for posting.

    The ascent and descent values displayed in Gaia GPS are the gross elevation changes for the route.

    Based on your example above, a route from A to G would return the following stats:
    - Ascent: 13 m
    - Descent: 6 m

    Unfortunately, this is not what I am getting. Please have a look iPhone screenshot of a track that I am sharing. A section of the track is a steep ramp, with an approx 30m descent.

    When I did 5 roundtrips of this ramp section on a given day, it should have given me a total ascent & descent in the range of 150m (5 x 30m) and up. However, on my iPhone, it gives me an ascent/descent of 39m(-38m), which is way too different from 150m that I was expecting. And I have gotten similar results with other tracks too for the hikes have done in the past. On the other hand, my other app (Cyclemeter) that I ran along with GAIA reports a result of 157m(-154m) closer to the expected result.


    BTW - for the same track - see link below - GAIAgps.com reports yet another result 45m (-46m), which is different from iPhone results - and hence, this is topic for another discussion.

    Thanks for the extra details and the screenshots.

    Can you send the activity logs for Gaia GPS to support so we can look into this more?
    - open Gaia GPS > Settings > Other > Send Logs.

    Was this issue ever resolved? I have also noticed different elevation reporting between the web based and ios platforms. I also just assumed the ascent/descent numbers were gross changes and reflective  of the effort not just total elevation changes.

    We are still tracking the inconstant stats across platforms.

    If you are noticing ascent/descent values that are not aligning with the gross values you expected, please click “Submit a Request” above to contact support. Please also include a copy of your track.

    It's very clear that the stats only show the difference between the starting elevation and highest elevation and not the total ascent, which is what is desired.  Very frustrating.  I upload to strava to find out the total ascent after the fact.

    The stats for your track/route should report cumulative elevation gain and not the difference between the stating and highest elevation. 

    Would you mind sending a link to the track/route in question to support@gaiagps.com so we can take a closer look at this issue?
