Sounds amazing? Yes it is!

We have designed the best route planning app for cycling. We built many features into Maplocs which makes editing a route very easy while keeping the app simple and very easy to use -

⚙️ Add points in between
⚙️ Delete points
⚙️ Close a route loop
⚙️ Shortest or fastest routing
⚙️ Long press and drag a point
⚙️ Reverse a route
⚙️ Duplicate a route
⚙️ Draw off-path routes


Don't you just love the challenge of climbing a hill? We do too! Not only can you see total climb and decent, but also see the elevation and gradient at each point and sections of a route. Maplocs has complex algorithms which find all the hills on a route and colors codes based on difficulty. Hills are categorised from Cat 4, 3, 2, 1 to HC (Hors Categorie). Cat 4 is an easy climb while HC is a very very tough climb. We build this so that you know exactly whats on your route and are well prepared for it.


What is route planning without amazing maps. We have Google Maps, Open Street Maps and Open Cycle Maps. There is no comparison to Google Maps when it comes to roads accuracy and places data. But there is nothing better than Open Cycle Maps for cycling routes and pathways around the world. We have them both! Additionally we also have satellite, terrain and specially designed dark and retro maps.


We have embraced the GPX standard to create and share routes. You can export routes in GPX to be used in Garmins, Wahoos and many other devices. Also, you can import GPX files which will enable you to plan and navigate routes received in GPX from your friends, Strava or other websites like Komoot, RideWithGPS or MapMyRide.


Doesn't matter if you're bike touring in Europe, crossing the Hardknott Pass in UK or cycling the great MTB Divide across USA, your routes will always be available to you in the app offline. Also, never worry about losing your routes and back them up with Google Drive and even sync between all your devices.

You have questions? Contact us via anytime and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

This is a great tool. Easy to use and very helpful when you want to avoid certain streets or to deviate from the normal route variations that google maps provide. The route you map will open in google maps and can be saved there. The route in Maplocs remains active and changeable even after saving in the app. So be careful when viewing a previously saved route in app, as it will continue to change if manipulated. The author,Ab, is considering a lock in future version. Very receptive

Hi, I'd say this is a great route planner. Thanks to the awesome developers for making it happen. Two 'features' that could be added, though. First a real app purchase, not a subscription. You'd have many potential buyers then 🤷‍♂️ Another is to add dark not only to the interface, but also to the map itself. Some of your 'route planning competitors' also have this so I think the devs could squeeze this little feature in.

Hi! Thank you so much for your kind words. We are really glad you're enjoying using the app. We wish we could have charged a flat fee, however routing, weather, maps and search cost us a lot every month which is why a subscription is the only way we can keep this app alive. Please tell us more about the dark map suggestion at Thx

Great for drawing maps but must export for navigation, which would be fine if it played well with other apps. All the nav apps listed either cannot properly read the file (even exported gpx) or try to "optimize" it and do their own route plan, negating the good work this app does. Would give it 9 stars if it could also do turn by turn navigation.
