I had 3 rides with this app and so far, I have not been able to get it to work properly. I downloaded the gpx file from a friend's route and when I import it suggest to reduce to 20 waypoints which I did. The problem is that while riding the app seems to try to optimize the route and change it from the planned. That's not good from what I was looking for.

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.

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.
