Gaia GPS Classic

Gaia GPS Classic

TrailBehind

►► NEW - May 2017 - If you buy this app (Gaia GPS Classic), you also get two free years to use the new Gaia GPS app

To you, it may be pricey, but to many who utilize it, this navigation instrument is priceless. That's because, in addition to the common option of satellite imagery, Gaia offers dozens of map overlays showing terrain, weather radar, parks, trails, hotels, national monuments, and other important points of interest. Better yet, these enhancements are downloadable for an area of your own selection, thus reducing the possibility of filling your iDevice’s precious storage space with irrelevant data. Lastly, a subscription to GaiaPro allows offline caching and opacity selection of multiple map layers, custom waypoint images, trip planning, and more.
