What's Happened? It's always been 'buggy' and crashes at least once every ride, but the new upgrade always crashes on startup on my Moto G so I can't use it at all now. Update - Thanks for the reply. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling (twice), but it still crashes on startup I'm afraid. UPDATE 2 - Now starts. Many thanks.
Inconsistent, not reliable I tried to use the app today on a 41 mile bike ride. At mile #10, the app stopped working. I tried to get the app running and it crashed 4 times. I gave up and my phone back in my saddle bag. At mile #36, the app suddenly came to life on its own and gave me directions for the last 5 miles of my ride. At this point, I'll stick with a paper cue sheet and fire up the app if I get lost
Buggy Constant upgrades that crashes makes this THE most annoying app on my phone.
Don't pay for Pro version... yet App is unusable in audio-only pro mode; mounting phone and looking at map/cues is free today although buggy. Refund? My suggested short-term development roadmap: 2 Stars: Fix battery drain issue and GPS smoothing... even with GPS sensitivity set to "200" it spent most of my ride announcing "Off route... Off route... rejoining route" on long segments of open road. Had to stop every few miles and pull out phone to check cue sheet manually. Despite almost no data or screen use, this app used over 60% of my S5 battery (3h ride) while spotify bluetooth streaming used barely 20% 3 Stars: Voice cues should briefly mute other media output so that instructions are heard clearly. With cues being spoken at the same volume as music it's next to impossible to understand the instruction. ESPN interrupted with its alert about a dozen times and the music got real soft while "de duh de, de duh de" was at full volume 4 Stars: Once this app (correctly) identifies that I'm off-route, it should re-calculate and give updated instructions for returning to route. 5 Stars: Add ability to join routes from current location and/or "resume" after switching back from another app.
Battery Drain and Unstable Don't rely on this if you are going for a 20+ mile ride, your battery won't last that long running CueSheet. I download the maps prior to the ride as suggested and switch the Map Source as suggested, but it just drained 12% of my battery in about 15 minutes of riding. It also crashed once that time. The only thing reliable about this (and this is the ProPack I've upgraded to) is that it will reliably crash at least once. Even when it is working fine, it won't give you the turn-by-turn directions unless you are on course. So if you get off track, or the app crashes and you have to restart (which resets the cuesheet to the first turn) you have to get back on course, then manually select which turn you want next. Not exactly the best solution when you're in the middle of a ride.
Does what I need This provides an important feature missing from most nav programs - the ability to guide you through a course. It runs fine on D4. I experience a lot of hiccups, but nothing that gets me off course. Thanks! ADDED: We use RWGPS to collaboratively create routes for the largest weekly ride in Charlotte, NC. (PMTNR, 100+) We use this app with a loudspeaker to communicate turns, dangerous intersections, regrouping stops, etc. It is quite valuable. It is battery heavy, as to be expected with GPS hungry apps
