Use Gridlines on


Anyone can now view gridlines at Gaia GPS Members can include them in map prints, too.

To turn on gridlines, click the overlays button and choose from 5 different formats:

  • Lat/Lon – Decimal Degrees
  • Lat/Lon – Degrees, Minutes, Seconds
  • Distance
  • UTM
  • MGRS


UTM and MGRS grids even work in the extreme north, such as Svalbard, which took extra effort from the developer on the project, Alex.

This feature got requested often, especially from Members who want to include gridlines when printing maps. The request also got upvoted on the Gaia GPS Community Forums.

We’re always listening to feedback. If you have any feature suggestions, you can add to the Community Forums, too.
