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.
No map shown Downloaded city map however no streets shown just a black screen. I have no clue from app help either.
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.
Disappointed Bought and paid for all maps bit they haven't uploaded. Nothing on app to tell me how.
Great bike app for cities Really like the app, great for route planning, Google Fit integration would be great in the future!
Needs improvement Very promising, but is unnecessarily routing me in the wrong way on one way streets. Often the route was completely incorrect and not due to recent changes. Similarly u turns on high traffic roads that are illegal and very very dangerous. I do not hate it, but it is a dangerous app at least for Athens. I would also expect to take into account climbs that could be avoided. I do not think it does,as test routes selected, almost the worst possible climb.
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!
