In Detail:

The app adapts to your bike type, speed, and preferred route type. Geovelo prioritizes bike lanes, cycle paths, and low-traffic roads for your comfort, safety, and peace of mind. Geovelo includes real-time guidance with map, full-screen, and compass modes, along with voice guidance and notifications.

Simply ride with the Geovelo app installed, and your journeys are automatically detected and recorded. You can review them within the app. Please note that you'll need to grant location access when the app is closed or in the background for this feature to work.

Data generated from journeys recorded with the Geovelo app are anonymized and used solely to analyze and improve bike-friendliness in partner cities.

With its comprehensive mapping, Geovelo also allows you to quickly find bike infrastructure, parking facilities, and bike racks nearby.

Connect with other cyclists in your city or workplace and take part in regular activity challenges. Ride your bike every day or cover the most kilometers to aim for the top of your community leaderboard.

Lots of potential. Positives: Navigation is nice, knows all the bike lanes. Stats are nice for nerds like me. It's nice to try something different than google maps for a change. Negatives: Very slow refresh of your position which often results in you thinking you took a wrong turn, recalculating takes forever. Unnecessary turns. Not totally the app's fault but I crashed because where I was didn't match with what was on my screen, so after looking for too long at my screen I tripped and fell.

Nice app, some suggestions for improvement: - to access recorded tracks, have to tap user name, could be more intuitive with owb menu item - avg speed is shown when track recording ends, but not accessible any more later - option to choose storage place, e.g. external memory card would be nice. I ran out of space and track was not saved without notice - no option to delete or annotate recorded tracks

Bonjour Martin ! Merci pour votre retour. Nous prendrons en compte vos idées. La vitesse moyenne réapparaîtra lors des prochaines versions. Concernant le stockage des données de l'application, nous réfléchissons à leur gestion pour faciliter l'utilisation. Enfin, il sera aussi possible de supprimer des traces de ses stats à la prochaine version !

Interface and screen layout great. Let down by it stopping recording on a cycle for no reason, doesn't track my route all the time and after finishing a cycle it doesn't record the route. With a bit of development it could be great. Unfortunately there are better cycle apps out there so I won't continue to use.
