GAIA GPS / App For Backpacking

January of 2023, we will subscribe to the premium version of the GAIA GPS app for our phones. It’s a good backup and also includes features where the Guthook App lacks. With this app, we will be able to:

  • download and have the map of the trail offline on our phone
  • be able to print certain sections of the trail beforehand
  • it shows weather conditions and the precip for the next 24 hours
  • help find dispersed campsites
  • many layers of maps to help navigate showing different looks
  • help find trails that lead to safety if we have to bail somewhere to get to go in the right direction to hit a roadway or towards a town
  • map layers that show cell coverage for different USA plans
  • maps showing wildfires
