We’ve revamped Gaia GPS on Android Auto so you can manipulate the map, record tracks, and drop waypoints all from your dashboard. Just connect your phone to your car display and navigate with your favorite Gaia GPS maps like MVUMs, hi-res global satellite imagery, and National Geographic Trails Illustrated — all from the luxury of the wide screen.
From expanded map controls to clearer visibility, here are the major updates:
Pan around and Zoom In and Out on the Map
Put your phone in the console and relax. Now you can engage with more of the map right from your dashboard. View other parts of the map by panning around from dashboard screen. Pinch your fingers on the map to zoom in and out.
Navigate Along Routes — and Off Them
Follow a route you’ve already built on Gaia GPS. Or forge your own trail by navigating to a waypoint or the start of a track.
Add Waypoints to Mark Key Locations
Mark landmarks, campsites, and water crossings in real time. Just drop a waypoint right from your navigation screen onto the map.
Start and Stop Recording Tracks
Leave a breadcrumb trail by recording your tracks in Gaia GPS, right from your dashboard. Just hit “Record Track” when you start, and “End” when you arrive. Your track will automatically sync on your phone, laptop, tablet, or wherever else you use Gaia GPS.
Search and Filter to Quickly Find Routes, Waypoints, and Tracks
Easily find the waypoint, track, or route you want with our brand new filtering and sorting system. Hit the search bar and then filter by object type. Or sort items by alphabetical title, distance from you, or time created.
Clearly See Where You’re Going
We’ve enhanced the navigation line to make it easier to see where you’re going as you whiz down the highway or maneuver technical off-road routes. New icons give Gaia GPS on Android Auto a crisper look so you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
