I like this app....but Whilst navigating, the map vanishes and I'm left with a squiggly line... This makes choosing which road to go down when it is not that obvious *eg in the countryside. I downloaded the vector maps, so why do they not work...? I have then selected in the app!
When trying the Android app (with offline map pack for the UK) today when using the "LiveRide" feature I encountered two bugs which make using the app an incredibly frustrating experience: * When in "LiveRide" mode the app does not keep the screen awake so after the phones "period of inactivity" is reached the screen is switched off. This is incredibly frustrating as I had my phone in a case and I had to take it out of the case to switch the screen back on. * When in "LiveRide" mode and using the offline maps if you switch out of the app (i.e. using the task switch button in Android) and back into the app the maps completely disappear, the route is still visible (i.e. the lines) but everything else is gone. The only way I've found to fix this is to stop "LiveRide" and start it all over again! I found this issue due to the previously mentioned issue where the screen would turn off. When I switched the screen back on and went back into the app the maps were gone. I would appreciate if the developer(s) of the app could fix this as the bugs mentioned above make navigation using "LiveRide" a real painful experience.
To good to be true 😠 Disappointed. Working really well, then sent me round in circles. Suddenly crashed. Trying out a route to work. Good thing that this was on a Saturday.
Issues recently Had been using on occasion to plot routes but recently every time says 'route finding failed' please look in to - can't see an update so assuming technical issue
SUPERB at advising routes. However, despite the inclusion of a settings option LiveRide is still a frustrating experience and desperate;y needs refining: clunky instructions such as "get ready to, straight on", advising turns after you've passed them, a VERY unclear screen lock/unlock icon (a thin red box doesn't really me anything - enabled, or disabled?) and which doesn't actual lock anything but instead keeps the app alive - not always successfully. and the lack of a landscape mode option all frustrate. DON'T look to add new features, work on refining the ones already there.
Good for urban route planning, poor for the countryside CycleStreets is good for urban route planning, avoiding roundabouts & busy roads, and offers choices of busy-ness. The map data is from OpenStreetMap (OSM) which, being open, means you can easily correct errors or add missing data. The developers are responsive to feedback. Negative points: frequency of taking updates from OSM has slowed recently; on longer journeys, Cyclestreets suggests unsurfaced dirt paths suitable for mountain bikes rather than quiet country lanes.
Bug fixes to menus, points of interest selection, and vector map rendering.
