After a couple of years it seems this app simply has not taken off. There are too many issues with it while the competition is getting better and better. Bike Citizens often crashes when tracking is stopped, which is annoying and impairs usability. The map data is hardly ever updated, even though OpenStreetMap constantly changes and improves. As a cyclist, one is fairly dependent on up-to-date information with regards to small roads and paths. Bike Citizens does not offer this.
Going back to google maps I tried to use it on my road bike with my phone mounted on the stem. The colour contrast of the route compared to the map is so low that it's not possible to simply glance at the phone and see the turn ahead. I needed to spend a couple of seconds to focus in the map in order to read it, which is dangerous. With google maps I only need to look at the phone for half a second and I can clearly read the route and prepare for any upcoming turns.
Sound problems!! There is no sound after the latest update!! Please fix this as the app is useless now. Was working perfectly beforehand
Works fine I just wish I could manually modify the routes, the 3 options (easy, balanced, fast) would sometimes guide me over cobblestone or through (temporarily) blocked roads that I would like to mark as "off limits" for the routing.
Is there any way to change the colorsheme?! I have dyschromatopsia and it's very hard to actually see the suggested route in the app... Until this is possible or a more accessible colorsheme is used, the app is unfortunately useless.
No map shown Downloaded city map however no streets shown just a black screen. I have no clue from app help either. City is Coventry UK.
Update 5.5.2 - or Goodbye, bugs, nobody wants you!
We did some magic, so from now on the app shouldn't crash anymore in some situations. Don't worry, we won't waste your time with the details. Save the time to ride your bike instead!
