Team, importing and saving trips appears to not work. Fix coming?
I love the app so far. Would like to see Apple Watch integration and searchable ride maps
Pros: - Biggest plus: Rever tracks your ride and, in recent versions, seldom crashes. Earlier crashes have lost nearly a thousand miles of tracked rides, but that seems to be in the past. - Has a social side, allows route & ride sharing and challenges. - Can map planned routes. - Butler Map routes are included in the pro version! - Turn-by-turn directions. - No real competition for what it does - Responsive developer. Con: (In order of irritation) - Creating routes has had many weird bugs for far too long. - NO iPAD SUPPORT, just a supersized iPhone app or incomplete browser support. iPads are handier than a laptop in my tank bag. - Pop-up messages and dialogs while I’m RIDING ON THE ROAD which cover directions. I need to pull off the road, take off my gloves, and put on my glasses (so I can read the dialog) to clear the nag box and continue with navigation. - One cannot edit out a recorded start or finish point. This means I need to make some rides private because if you leave a route “public” that (accidentally) includes your driveway the public knows where your garage is. - Map navigation on a browser is not based on Apple’s multi-touch scheme but, rather, Google’s. - The route waypoints pulldown list doesn’t always show (on iPad) when you press the widget. - Cannot message to your group or “friends” to coordinate rides within the app. - One cannot toggle-off paved or dirt roads; which means, I end up on too many dirt roads without warning. This is an issue when one wants road bikes to meet along a planned ride. - Turn-by-turn directions will mess-up your preplanned routes. - Every ride, at least once, the app will tell me to turn AFTER the intersection. - No competitor for what it does. I’ve been using Rever for years: I go back and forth between it and InRoute. Both have killer features and killer flaws. I don’t understand how folk can ignore poor implementation of core features and award 5-stars. The frustrating mapping feature “(or lack there of)” is an issue. Rever really needs a firm hand to direct a bottom up rewrite of the mapping API. Two or three star rating? It is a coin toss for me, but I keep using it so I’ll give it a three.
This is not a very user friendly app. You cannot make account detail changes. Everything has to be done from a computer. And when you use the help option, they refer you to the website. Then once you make a change via computer, there is a delay in the change. I changed my login email and it wouldn’t take my old or new email as a log in. Having Rever and Rlink as two separate things makes it confusing as well. I like the gps security, but everything else is confusing. I wish there was a solid tutorial video for both Rever and Rlink.
First off it doesn’t fill the entire screen on my iPad. So I have about 1.5” of unusable space around the entire app while attempting to navigate the map to plan a route. Forces you to use Apple Maps. I hate their map service compared to Google’s. You can’t edit a ride: you define a start and a second waypoint and it selects the route for you with no capability to edit. No advantage over Google here. The ONLY advantage is more waypoints than Google Maps...that’s it. Can’t even export gpx files for other riders. So if you want to share, they HAVE to have Rever as well, most riders I know won’t download it. Way to monopolize it guys. You can share an image of a route. Really?!?! An image of a route? Am I supposed to print and frame it? Pro subscription is a joke and doesn’t provide anything a free service does.
Why does it show a sport bike in the corner of my rides? I don’t ride a sport bike. Overall, there are some tweaks that could be made to improve it.
Perfect for any application on or off-road.
Where I live the service is a little spotty but piece of mind if someone touches the bike my phone goes off. My last bike was stolen so this is a must have for me. I paid the 2 years in advance and worth every penny.
Works great to go point to point. But playing around with different issues and sharing to other apps not quite as easy yet.
Love all of the fantastic riding it shows around me and sharing my rides with friends.
