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.

It's a nice free app that does the job of finding cycling paths, I think it suggests better options than Google maps. But it cannot handle well when you differ from suggested paths, it will keep trying to make you u-turn for kilometers rather than adapting to the new path. Very annoying when there are roadblocks the app doesn't know about. Also it plays with the screen lightness settings, but it a very bad way. It dims everything so much I can barely see the screen when riding

I can't download the maps for offline use (like I can with Organic Maps app) and I can't change the map background.

Bonjour Nous ne proposons pas cette option pour le moment en effet, pour des raisons d'optimisation de batterie et de stockage. Merci

looks promising but it's unable to generate/calculate any itinerary, even if it's 100 meters away on the same street
