New Gaia GPS Android beta – now with MBTiles and Burning Man support

We pushed a new update to the Android Gaia GPS beta today.

We have been getting tremendous feedback from the Android beta group now, so we cleaned up a bunch of bugs people have reported from the field. The version of the beta now also notably supports MBTiles, a data format MapBox published that lets people wrap up bundles of map tiles into a database. So, if you have any MBTiles, Gaia will import and show your tiles as a layer.

We’ve wanted to support MBTiles in Gaia for a while, but we did it now to scratch an itch for Burning Man.
