Glad it is working for folks. Enjoy.. and while I don't work for GAIA I am trying to collect info on how our segment of the GPS/tracking world uses it in hopes of improvements.

Off road tracks usually from azfj, hiking tracks from hikearizona.com

Spaldam was in their booth.

We just handed out a few hundred hundred flyers is all.

Most of us use GAIA too, but be careful while using it or you could end up rolling your purple FJ down a mountain near Jerome.

A more likely scenario would be some type of feed from APRS.FI but you would need an internet connection. The question has been asked through the years and currently not enough requests to commit any development time to it.

It would be nice to be able to turn the Waypoint lables ON/OFF so you can see what they were named.

PRO: advantages:
1. Weather - simply seeing where the storms are has saved my life. (I know that will disappoint some of you)
2. Overlay transparency:
I downloaded the Historic 1930 Topo, and if you overlay the modern Topo and play with the transparency to see what still exists, or what may be nearby worth investigating, this alone pays for the $39.99/year.
3. Add other Layers
Handy for some (Like me) if you have access to other GIS data like Wildfire boundary, etc.

Either way, it's worth being a PRO on Gaia

Cool FJ overland write up. Isn't this a non-member?

Thatd be somewhat interesting in that it would open up overlays onto some more map layers, but everyone I know of thats had interest is wanting it for the offline/cached capability. IE: trail runs in tge middle of nowhere where the only position feeds would be sourced from RF.

Even that is already doable with aprsdroid, and apparently can do full offline caching, but thats only basic google street maps. Not to mention a seperate app to have to swap back to when gaia is what we need for nav.

I submitted another request to them about APRS and indicated if they did it it would bring another group of people that would use their app.

I got a response saying it was posted. Maybe people could find it and vote on it or support it, or whatever they do with it.

Random thought, and not meaning to derail the thread, but any idea if the aprsdroid people are open to assisting? I dont know how things are programmed on the back end, but if aprsdroid could spit out data in a format that gaia recognizes as cached map layer/waypoint data (a la gpx file?), and gaia could be set to refresh that data either upon change or set intervals, it could be an easy fix.

Kinda makes me wanna get back i to programming just to try...

Which version you use? iOS
Have you used GAIA Pro in the past? No
How long have you used GAIA? 0
Do you have a favorite source for getting GPX tracks for areas you have never been to? Not yet.

This sounds like exactly what I was looking for since I bought an iPad last month...

I always just search for things like "Backroad to Crow King GPX" . However, Funtreks books offer free waypoints. Trailsoffroad.com is an up and coming resource with lots of AZ trails.

Bump... I forgot to add this here. Dealing with Zip files in iOS is a pain.

For those that like to import tracks directly from your iPad here is a write up on how to do it. Specifically on dealing with Zip files in iOS.

Enjoy....
