I really like the feature to unlock maps with riding x kilometers. I would however advise you to take a look at the voice guidance, since it sometimes tells you to 'turn right' when you in fact have to go straight, but the bike lane just so slightly curves to the right. It got me off-track a couple of times. It's quite important since many bikers rely on voice guidance. But keep working on it, thanks!

The most useful features are subscription-based. Basic features are just okay. The basic features and reviews don't lead me to believe that a subscription would be worth the cost. This app is pretty euro-centric, which is fine if that meets your needs. I am not in Europe and the capabilities are more lacking because of this. I am uninstalling due to abuse of the notification permission to spam me with an advertisement to buy a premium subscription. This is not acceptable. Goodbye.

The voice directions are not working and the premium version was useless in the end. Also the routing did not take account of hills and google maps was in the end the better and free option.

Hello Stephan, if voice navigation does not work it is a problem cuased by your phone settings, not the app. And of course, our app can recognise steep tracks and hills. We are sure that our routing and navigation is better than google maps. We would like to help you finding the right settings. Please write to info@bikecitizens.net
