Is it good?

Trailbehind, INC. has put efforts and engineered a sophisticated trail app. What makes it successful? It is very easy to use for such a solid navigation app with built-in maps features. Well, as a top-performing app with an overall rating of 4.83 I can only add what people who have tried it are saying.

I use the Gaia iPhone app almost exclusively to plan my adventures, and I rely on it constantly while hiking to stay oriented and on plan. It gives me the peace of mind to tackle trips I would otherwise not feel comfortable attempting. For planning I use the app literally hours each day: route creating, adjusting, recreating; adding waypoints for important, interesting things to note while hiking; relying on the included interactive trail lines and the various map layers to design accurate, safe trips. It is by far the most important tool in my hiking toolbox. Even though I’ve gotten quite good at using the app, I’m continually finding new and amazing things it can do. For instance, I’m planning a backpacking trip to Denali where backcountry camping is regulated by zones and quotas. The National Park Service has a wonderful paper map that shows these zones. I found that their website allowed me to download a data file of the zones and to my delight I discovered the Gaia app easily imported them along with included metadata. What an amazing planning feature. I have many other examples of how I use the app but will save them for future reviews. Don’t think twice: buy the pro version and use it, use it, use it.
One of the best mobile apps hands down. The app has easily saved me from getting lost several times. It might have even saved my life. The interface may not be the most intuitive but once I got used to it, I was fine. The app has ALWAYS worked without cellular service. I’ve used it in this manner over a dozen times for a total of about 30 days in two countries. The key is to download an area map to your device before you leave cellular coverage and load it when you are ready. It’s also helpful to establish known waypoints before but no biggie if you don’t. Two negative observations some of Colorado’s 14ers are listed at the wrong altitude and if you cache equipment and use this app to waypoint the arrow that shows your location to the waypoint will continuously move location even though you are standing still. It still, in my opinion, a 5 star app!
