PROS The setup was simple and it was easy plotting my course. The first 30-40 mins of the ride was flawless. Customizable turn by turn navigation, plus the neat rider down feature. CONS First thing that I noticed was the turn by the navigation was glitchy, but easy to turn off when it got annoying. The app crashed about 40 mins into my ride. I had to pull over and replot...than it happened again 5 mins later. This app will be 5 stars and sellable once the bugs are worked out.

Best routing app and arguably the only one worth using. However, 50% of the time my course will get super glitchy. Via point #8 will show as #1, and so on and so forth. The point numbers get completely reset somehow and I can't seem to figure out why. It doesn't happen every time, but it will stop your ride and gave you reevaluate if you're going the right way. Usually it restarts the count down. Overall, very useful app though and much less of a disappointment than the other 20 I've tried.

Hi Mike, thanks a lot for the warm review and feedback! Currently, once you ride off-route (from the planned route), we do a re-calculation towards the upcoming waypoint, which is re-named as nr: 1 instead of the previous number. We're going to improving this flow and probably keep the old number of the via-point to make it more clear. Ride Safe

So far the app seems to do as it says. Thankfully, I have not had to test the crash detection and notification in a real world scenario. And there have been a couple times that the directions did not get me to the desired destination. A feature I would like to see added is the ability to link another Detecht user as my passenger. This would be very beneficial if there were an accident and my passenger didn't have her crash detection running, and both our contacts would still be notified.
