Gaia GPS and Offline Topo Maps have a temporary issue for people upgrading from iOS5->iOS6.
None of your data has been lost, but when you update your operating system, the apps misplace your tracks and maps. This is because we have a bit of fragile code, and it broke when Apple changed a “hash” function in iOS6.
To address this issue:
- if you start fresh on iOS6, you are fine
- if you upgraded from iOS5 to iOS6, sit tight – our next update will restore all of your tracks and maps
- if you don’t have tracks or maps you care about, just delete and reinstall the app
Our update should be approved sometime next week. Unfortunately, we had a big release in review, but we found this bug and had to pull it. We imagine it will take Apple 2-10 days to approve our update.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. While we had been working with the new iOS6 developer kit, we totally missed this issue. As a result, we are trying to determine how to improve our QA process around operating system updates.
