Love the idea. Great colors great routes, it just drains your battery unbelievable fast. Takes about 80 percent battery for an hour ride. Being on a bike that’s somewhat unacceptable. But again smooth app if it didn’t take so much battery
Yearly fee and you recommend carrying the phone in a pocket for best impact detection yet offer map navigation?? Most riders mount phone to bars or dash. Maybe if you had a Apple Watch detection. Maybe . . .
Very good app. I’ll keep using
This app has so much potential. I like it so far and I did get the premium features because I want to support this app, but would like to see the following: 1. Being able to choose which vehicle are using on a specific route. This way, you can see how many miles you’ve done on a specific vehicle (I have a Harley and a Ruckus) and the routes taken with each vehicle. 2. Being able to add another Detecht user to your route. This way if that user forgets to start their Detecht, they still have a way to add a route ridden for that other user. This feature would also help build up the Detecht community because you would be able to send add requests to riders that aren’t on Detecht. 3. Being more clear on how to create a route. Even if it means adding a button that says Create A Route, then it’s crystal clear how to create a route. 4. Being able to edit the routes while in the “preview on map” mode. It takes a while having to enter specific addresses to be able to take a different rode than the suggest route. It would be nice to be able to drag a point on the route to change where to go. I also had an issue with importing a GPX file. I tried both on the phone and the computer to upload but all it does is says “Converting GPX file to route…” but nothing ever happens. At this very moment I have waited 30 minutes for it to finish converting but still nothing. It would be great if this could be fixed because I would love to use the turn by turn direction with a custom route I created. For now, I’ll give it 3 stars but if could it would be 3.5 stars because while it does have good features (like the crash detection) the other features still need some polishing to make it great. I’ll definitely give it a higher rating once some these
“I downloaded the app and setup the profile. I selected the distance calculations for miles but the the app selected kilometers instead. There is no way in the app to change it. I uninstalled and reinstalled it but it retains the profile. I tried to contact support with the email they provided but the email address doesn’t work.” I was contacted by Detecht through the Apple App Store in a timely manner and they have updated me with a fix. I was able to install the fix with now issue is resolved. Thank you Detecht team.
I downloaded the app I selected miles in settings and was showing kilometers and at that time I was unable to go back into settings to change it to miles. After a small glitch the app has been updated and working as intended and I cannot wait to use it again! The software company personally contacted me in a very short time to resolve my problem. VERY VERY Impressed with the way my issues was handled. I would highly recommend this app and any app that this company produces. They stood behind their product!
I liked the idea of having an app that would contact my wife in the event of a crash. I tried making a trip but the app was fraught with poor GPS location services I was constantly missing turns because I was told it wasn’t for another 50-100 meters ahead. A lot of the street names were incorrect driving through Eastern NC so you couldn’t rely on the GPS. I ended up pulling over and cutting my ride short and used a different app.
I downloaded the app tonight. Was excited about the crash detection feature. I’ve tried 5 times to subscribe to the premium service and all 5 times the app has locked up and won’t let me continue. Update: The issue has been fixed. No issues at all. I look forward to using this app more.
I used this app for a over 3000 mile ride. When I saved it the route I drove was lost. I still have the stats though.
This will be the new go to app for our rides. New goal is to map as many routes as we can. Wish I had known about this sooner.
