Used to be my favourite bike GPS app From all the bike GPS apps, this used to be my favourite, giving almost as good directions as Google Maps. However, although I paid 20€ for all the map coverage, suddenly they ask again, now yearly, to pay 49€ for the same thing. This is where you lose me now.
Speedy response. Issues resolved Useful app. Simple, clear mapping. Fun!
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.
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.
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.
Sound problems!! There is no sound after the latest update!! Please fix this as the app is useless now. Was working perfectly beforehand
