  1. On my iPhone 6 & iOS 9.0.2, voice indications are REALLY slow.

    I suspect this is a bug. Anyone else with the same problem?

    • Have the option of having track up map (rather than north up)

      While cycling, having a map that always shows north up is not very convenient. Especially when cycling south :-)

      Having the option of having track up would be great!

      And even when the mod shows north up, having an arrow showing our direction would be a plus!

      • State Park Trail East side of Lake St. Mary's

        There is a very nice state park bicycle multi use trail on the east side of Lake St. Mary's and it does not show up as a map on the system what would it take to get it to display as a bike trail? Lake St. Mary's in western Ohio

        • Multiple destinations

          I see how to place multiple pins and put a route together and that's great- but it assumes I know where my points are going to be. In a strange town (which is often) I never know where they are going to be.

          It appears I can only search and store one address at a time, and when I try to search a second address the first one vanishes requiring me to make a separate note (on paper?) and repeat until all my addresses are located (memorized) so when I hit the directions button I can manually pin in all…

          • Directions

            Finding directions, whether through the looking glass or the wiggly directions button, is overly tedious and frustrating. Makes one wonder if the developers even use this
            app???

              • Disable Screen Lock option

                It would be great to have the option to have the app temporarily disable the phone's auto screen lock. This avoids having to unlock while riding.

                • Auto-brightness off option

                  My handlebar-mounted iPhone case (Biologic) dims the camera input, confusing Auto Brightness. Having the app handle this would be nice.

                    • Planning tool

                      It would be great to add a planning tool for bike rides along with it. An application to use on your computer for easy planning could be useful too.

                      My suggestion is you would either be able to tap the screen and that way progressively build up your route or just tap in the start and and point (start point could be current location) and let the app calculate the route between. If you have the data one might even be able to choose between shortest or scenic or least traffic or something.

                        Well, it took awhile, but the latest version of the app (2.0) has a ride planning / directions tool. You can try out routes between 2 or more points on the map, by tapping just like you suggested. :)

                      • Off line maps

                        Seeing this app I already see uses to go cycle to other countries. Data costs could get pretty high that way though so what about you add in app purchases of offline maps per country? That way people could buy the map of the country their biking in and use the app without the expense of data roaming.

                          Thanks for the suggestion! We aren’t able to download full offline maps yet, but the new version of the app (1.1) has an option to increase the size of saved maps. You could use that to preview routes in other countries and avoid those roaming data changes.
