Gaia is an excellent product. I use it all the time. The dedicated GPS unit goes in the top of the pack in case I need it. But the maps on Gaia are much better. I don't use it to track my route, just refer to location sometimes (in airplane mode). Download the area where you're travelling to your phone ahead of time. Eats a bit of storage space, but now I finally have a phone that can handle it. Delete files later if you don't need them and get your storage back. There is no extra cost for downloading map sections.
