Good app. Wish my gpx files would go on it
I called the App Store and they confirmed 😢.
I’m trying to navigate this map frequently want to check the legend to figure out what some of the symbols mean. But the legend isn’t that easy to find and in trying to locate it I end up moving the map or changing some function. Shouldn’t the legend be a button right ON the map so you can flip to it with one step?
Spend the time learning the app. Very helpful
I haven’t really used this specific app but I have ridden the Trans America bike trail and I absolutely nothing bad to say about the adventure cycling association. Huge thank you to everyone involved with it.
Very helpful app. Finished the east coast in Bar Harbor Maine last year. Headed to SanDiego on the southern tier now.
One star because every 30 seconds the app it asks for a review. Well here you go. One star.
In four minutes testing this app, I got six pop ups to rate this software. It would seem to show they don’t have a clue in their approach towards their customers. It may be decent or even very good software - but I’m not sticking with this to find out. I’ll try it in six months, one more time.
When using the navigation the zoom level is too tight. Unlike other navigation maps one cannot zoom out. That is, while one is moving. If stationary i can zoom out but as soon as I move the zoom snaps to an almost useless level. The map does not offer alternate routes to a point that may be off route. Requiring back and forth with other navigation apps. The display of the map is far too pale. Non route connecting roads are practically impossible to see when navigating. It would be useful to see them as a guide back to the route in cases where a make detour of a few streets. Mote information could be added to the info panels. Perhaps gathered from recent users. I would have loved to see up to date info for campgrounds and towns. Like a rating of campsites or details of amenities. Options for stores within local range.
Just completed San Francisco to LA in five days. This app was a godsend and life savior
