Update: after about 15 app updates, still no landscape view. The app is unsafe and a distraction try and use while in Landscape mode. I’d be happy to pay premium prices for it if they would make this “simple” safety adjustment.
I got my Grom stolen a couple days before Christmas. I had no security system and stupidly I didn’t chain it down to something being that it’s so small. And being that I live in NY, had no garage to put it in...easy pick up for the thieves. So upon buying my new bike, I was looking for a security system to put in it. One with gps and alarm. After much searching I found RLink (via Scorpio website). I think it’s great that it has an actual map that you can see where your bike is. It has tilt sensor and a shock sensor for your added convenience. My only wish is that it could somehow have a stronger alerting system. I have to leave my phone on its loudest setting so that I can hear if it goes off and I fear it’s not loud enough. What about when I’m sleeping and it sends a one time text? I’d like a blaring alarm sound so I can pop out and get active!!! Over all is a great app that provides a sense of security. Customer service got back to me whenever I had a question. Just add in a way to have the notifications louder then the phones settings and it’s a 5 star app
Such an awesome idea and concept. I love being able to track my motorcycle rides, not to mention the Butler Maps and REVER rides to help me find new rides.
It does not work “stable”. Suddenly quit the App and lost all the track - also during a Pause, quit the App and lost the track. The concept of the App is good, but needs more Development from your side. Not recommended at this moment.
I installed the app over a year ago. First time I used, it crashed and a lost my data. Stopped using since. Yesterday, I decided to give it a go again. Before departing for a long and planned trip. Guess what? It crashed again. The app doesn’t open anymore. It just opens, freezes and crash again. Lost my data again and truly regret having chosen Rever to record this trip because now I will simply never have it recorded.
Very Disappointed I started to use the app with some success however found no benefit in purchasing the premium membership. Now I continue to get charged 5.99 a month and unable to figure out how to terminate the membership. Support for the app is very slow
I like the app and a group of use have used it for car rides. It works well and it was good to have everyone following the same route. Wrote to the developers about making a car version but never heard anything back. Maybe a toggle that would let you add a car instead of just motorcycles but then I am sure the diehards would hate it.
I just can’t. I live in Chicago, which is the 3rd largest metropolitan area in the US behind NYC and LA, yet the ‘community’ feature is a ghost town. Moreover, I’ve been unable to find a way to start my own group in the community, so I’ve just given up. Additionally, the navigation feature is a complete joke. It’s not always practical or safe to ride on some of the most heavily traveled freeways/interstates in the country at rush hour, yet REVER offers no options whatsoever in avoiding freeways or offering alternative route options. Even if they did, I wouldn’t use the platform for navigation purposes because it feels like taking a step back in time to the early gen 1 and 2 iPhone map feature. Save yourself the headache, download Waze, and move on with life.
I have been a premium Rever user for years. Over those years I have defended and recommended it to dozens, if not hundreds of people. No more. Why? 1. The folks at Rever used to be receptive to input. That is no longer the case and their tech support is lacking. 2. The app has been over coded to the point that it crashes, is slow to load, and loses data. 3. The turn-by-turn voice guidance is a joke. It’s just a lesser version of Google Maps. What is the point of adding that? 4. Premium members are subjected to being upsold to other Rever-sponsored products. Get a grip, guys. One reason we pay a premium price is so we don’t have to see that junk. It’s a real shame to see what this app has turned into. It’s like a painting that was great, but the artist wouldn’t stop painting until he ruined it. If it doesn’t get cleaned up before my subscription renewal comes up I’m out. I’d rather use my Garmin.
