This week, I talked with a Facebook friend planning an American Discovery Trail adventure in a couple of months who had questions about how The ADT Guide works with Gaia GPS. I thought if he had questions, others may too. And then I thought, how about a Test Drive!

An ADT Guide Subscription, whether monthly or annually, includes full access to two sets of navigational tools for the American Discovery Trail.

  • Turn-By-Turns and Maps with Hiker Notes downloadable in a PDF format, and
  • Those same Turn-by-Turns with Hiker Notes in digital form are shared on the Gaia GPS app.

First about Gaia GPS

Gaia GPS comes in both a Free version and a Premium version for $39.99/year (or $99.99/year if you include an Outside+ membership).

The difference between Gaia GPS Free and Premium is the number of map layers you can access.

The Free version comes with Open Street Map, Gaia Topo, and a couple of other layers. The Premium version includes a mind-blowing assortment of map layers, from USGS Topo and Nat Geo Trails to Cell Coverage, Snow Cover, and even wildfire maps. It is a fantastic collection. And with the Gaia GPS Premium, you can also download the maps to your device for offline use.

It is a powerful, customizable tool that helps jumpstart planning for an American Discovery Trail adventure! These are the reasons why we have been building The ADT Guide exclusively for Gaia GPS.  

Now about The ADT Guide on Gaia GPS

And the best news, The ADT Guide works on both – Free and Premium Gaia GPS versions!

As an ADT Guide Subscriber, you will receive The ADT Guide waypoints and tracks as a shared layer for use in the Gaia GPS app or on the Gaia GPS desktop. And as we add new ADT Guide waypoints or track changes made, they are automatically synced to your Gaia GPS!
