GAIA Premium adds 6 Cell Phone Coverage layers


Recommended Posts

I love this app, just when I think they have finished they add another new feature.

Attached is the Verizon layer for my upcoming trip, the first this year (to the Snake River Birds of Prey Conservation Area near Boise ID.)

CS you need the Premium level to get all the very cool layers and extra map types. I think regular cost is $40 annually but you can google and see if you can get a reduced price for the first year.

After John's posts, I have read about the Gaia app, and it sounds very cool. I decided the annual cost was too high for our needs, and I have an old, less full featured, app that allows me to download topo maps for offline use. 

The cell phone coverage feature is very cool, and if your are interested in that there is an excellent app called Coverage?, which provides that functionality, but the app is a one time $2.99 purchase. We use this app regularly when looking at campgrounds. Too many campground reviews say "no cell service," but the review is old and in fact there is cell service. It could also depend upon cell provider. 

BTW, this app was made by Technomadia, former Oliver owners and tech gurus. They have other apps including a GPS-enabled app that map out public lands (good for boondocking) and one listing state laws, such as whether it is legal to overnight in a rest area or which state has lower gasoline taxes (used that one!). 

Below is a screen shot from Coverage? of the same region of Idaho that John posted about. Both apps are probably accessing the same data source.

I use Coverage and have found it to be “optimistic” in one of our favorite camp spots. Probably more due to data from the providers than the Technomadia developers, but still a bummer.
