Love to hit the trails? Enjoy discovering seemingly untouched hideaways? Gaia GPS is an awesome app companion when you want to take the road less traveled. Hiking, biking, trailblazing, or just getting lost in the urban jungle are all supported by Gaia GPS: a full-featured outdoor GPS app.
Before you go off-roading, search for and download a detailed map of that area. Choose as large of an area as you like, and pick from different map sources. A road map is perfect for urban adventures and Cloudmade Topo has several pretty awesome options for topographical maps. A combination of both will have you covered on long road trips. Use Gaia GPS to navigate anywhere you aren’t connected!
Notate your saved maps for reference; maps are available for many locations worldwide. Tell the app to record your tracks so you can find your way back, Hansel and Gretel style. Mark waypoints and save locations for later. This app also features a built in compass and offers distance, bearing, and ETA support. Choose from UTM/MGRS/DMS/DDM or decimal coordinates, and between metric or imperial units of measurement.
Please note, Gaia GPS – Topos and Tracking is not compatible with all tablets.
