This season, we've transformed Gaia GPS into the best hunting GPS, expanding the map catalog to cover the needs of hunters across the US. Gaia GPS now includes nationwide private land ownership, public land, game management units (GMUs), timber, and fires, giving you great hunt maps to overlay on the world's best topo and satellite maps. Scout out the best areas, navigate and track out in the field, and share your tracks with other hunters. This hunting season's work is based on experience Gaia GPS users and staff have had out in the field. Give us a shout at to tell us how to make Gaia GPS the best hunt app. ►► The Best App for Topo Maps Gaia GPS has been showcased in Apple's "Your Verse" stories, and covered in countless major publications, from Outside and TrailRunner, to the New York Times and FOX News TappedIn.

  • Great Support Team

    Whenever I have a question it has been answered in short order. I love this app!
  • Frustrating poor search function

    By Jo in Wisc
    Gaia is a great hiking app but please fix the search function. A few letters are typed in and the drop down list appears. You cannot type more letters to make that list more concise. You cannot get out of the list. You have to close Gaia and start over. For such a great app the search feature should function better.
  • No need for a Garmin!

    By Jordan Finke
    This app is amazing for riding snowmobile and giving you statistics on how long you were riding, how long you were stopped, mapping your trails, and making waypoints so you can remember those sweet hill climb spots. Especially offline/no service!!! If you aren't happy with the sattilite imagery they have a hidden one under premium maps by ESRI which is amazing in rural Alaska! My only issue with the app as it stands right now is that on the iPhone X, you can't crop a track as the save button is under the iPhones top status bar, so then you have to force quit the app.
  • Best mapping app for off-road

    By J. Castle Clark
    I have been using Gaia GPS for almost 4 years now at the time of this writing. I have tried every paid GPS app, and still none have outperformed Gaia GPS in any aspect. Powerful features for planning and organizing as well as navigating, such as access to many different types of high quality maps, automated route drawing, automatic route map area downloads, and of course route and waypoint importing, exporting, and organization within folders. This is by far, the best mapping app for off-road exploration.
  • Possible Bug on iPhone X UI running iOS 11.2.1

    By ERAUdarouze
    When I attempt to crop a recorded track, there is no button (visible) to finish the cropping or go back to previous menu. I have to close the app to return to main menu.
  • Good stuff

    A little bit of a learning curve- but thus far the only app that shows actual 24k todo details. Bravo! Also fast response to question posted on their website. Keep up the good work!
  • Amazing Capabilities

    By Tomthereader
    Highly recommended GPS app with lots of offline maps features!
  • Crashes upon startup

    Can't even open the app 😰
  • Impressed

    I’m blown away by what you can do with the premium version. If you are interested in visiting the national parks then this is a no brainer. You can view what mile you are on in the river or on the trail. Great App!
  • Old Maps

    By BluestreakNC
    I really like the app. I’ve had it for 12 months now. The most significant issue I have is outdated maps. For example: With Google Maps or my Hunt Stand App which uses Google Maps, it shows a property that I use that’s been clear cut. With the Gaia Sat Maps is still shows it with trees. Well, it was cut 22 months ago.
