About Gaia GPS

Gaia GPS is developed by TrailBehind Inc.

Anna and Andrew Johnson founded TrailBehind in 2008, building outdoor search site trailbehind.com. In 2009, during the dawn of the App Store, the company launched Gaia GPS. Gaia GPS incorporated the original trailbehind.com search feature, with offline mapping and tracking features, for iPhone.

Since then, the app and team have expanded, and Gaia GPS has been featured often in the press, and by Apple. Gaia GPS can be used on iOS, Android, and on gaiagps.com, and users have synced over 13,000,000 tracks to gaiagps.com.
