Quickly upload tracks, routes, waypoints, and areas with one click on gaiagps.com/map. Now when you find a route or file from another website or source, you can import them directly to your Gaia GPS account. Expand your adventures by importing obscure off-road routes, new hikes, or recommended adventures.
With the new importer, you can drag and drop GPX, KML, KMZ, GeoJSON, and FIT files directly from your desktop. Upload up to 1,000 items at a time, then filter through and select individual items before importing. That way, you can create a new folder and fill it with only the information you need to explore.
How to Use the Import Sidebar
To use the importer:
- Visit gaiagps.com/map
- Drag and drop your file to the map, or manually select the upload button on the left sidebar to search through your files
- Now you can sort through the items in your file and deselect any that you do not want to import
- Once you’re finished, click the Save Item button to save to your Gaia GPS account.
- Now you can easily access your data on gaiagps.com or in the iOS or Android app.
For large uploads (files containing more than 100 items) you’ll be given the option to choose what type of data you want to import (ie. just tracks or waypoints, or both) to prevent importing large amounts of unwanted information. Any points uploaded, like a trailhead, parking location, campsite, or other waypoint, will appear as icons based on the title or notes associated with the point.
