Gaia takes generic routes in GPX and KML format. So search the internet for “xyz trail GPX” and then download and import. For example WA BDR GPX. It also can export in GPX and KML so you can share where you have been. There is a site called GPS Xchange that has lots to offer. So does trailsoffroad.comWhere might one look for other public gaia routes that are free to obtain? Besides the download section on this forum, which unfortunately doesn't have too much.
Where is CarPlay mode?
There are only like 20 total CarPlay apps and they are all pretty much redundant. If you shelled out the extra money for a car that has a CarPlay compatible head unit, it probably came with GPS and satellite radio - at least in my case it did. So I literally have no use for the navigation apps they have for CarPlay and I wouldn't want to eat up my data for Pandora or the music apps for CarPlay. CarPlay has a lot of potential, but it is something they have just failed to offer anything worthwhile for.I would love to have this capability as well, but I have been following this over on the GAIA support pages and my gut is telling me this is just not going to happen. Very unfortunate.
Make sure the app is synching your data each time you are online. If this still doesn't work contact Gaia GPS Support.I have been collecting waypoints and naming them for camp spot details, such as how many rigs can get in the area, or how level, exposed, wooded etc.
I want to be able to share them with my local overland bound group.
I put them all in a folder on my ipad mini for the life of me I cant seem to figure out how to get them onto my other devices (ie phone and when I log onto gaia from the web. A few show up but not all. I cant see any difference in the two vs the ones which do not show up.
I do see a link to share the folder via email.
If i get them all to show up, can other users post into that folder so in effect we all share to the same folder so we call can see either others waypoints? How can I accomplish this?
I had some issues with the previous version but haven't with the latest version which was released a few weeks ago. I also have an iPad 11.Using my iPad Pro 11, Seems like somewhat frequently, if I'm adding and removing layers, changing opacity, GAIA seems to hang and nothing displays except my own waypoints, tracks, etc over a blank canvas. Does this happen to anyone else?
I'm new to it too. All I did is watch the videos and mess around with it, and it started making sense pretty quickly. I had to go back to the videos a few times, and went to their help section a few times, but it pretty much came together.I finally bit the bullet and did the Gaia Pro subscription on an older IPad 4th gen with cellular I had lying about. Just glad The is so much support with the OB crowd for the undoubtedly large amount of questions I will have!
Yes, GAIA 101 you have to download the map layers you want. Sometimes you may get lucky with what Gaia puts into a cache file (if it's the same area you are travelling to) but don't rely on that.Do you need to download maps for the area first? I’ve had pretty good results in Pine barrens with the app.
It's not hard. Just set up a simple route in the area before you go, when you have service, and choose the layers/overlays you want so they download too. If you do that, you should be set.Maybe thats the reason my pine barrens trips were working fine... areas ive used frequently. so have to download a whole route for a cross country and back trip? sheesh. that sucks. well, thanks for the heads up.
