Why spend hundreds of dollars on a Garmin Zumo or TomTom Rider? Scenic is a true alternative, and in some ways even better than expensive navi units. Try it for free!
Plan routes by dropping via points and stops. Scenic will show you a route between them. Don't like it? Choose another routing mode, including curvy!
Found a great route on the internet? Or have some laying around in Basecamp? No problem... Scenic can import many file formats and even links directly to quite some apps and websites, including Scenic's own WebApp where you can paste Google Maps URL's and drag & drop GPX, KML, KMZ, GDB (Garmin) and ITN (TomTom) files.
Scenic has a vast database of thousands of beautiful routes, shared and rated by local Scenic users worldwide. Select an area, tap 'Search' and see what comes up.
Yet another way to get a great route... Scenic can generate a round trip for you in a given direction with a given distance. Or a curvy route to a destination of your choosing.
Let Scenic navigate you with clear on-screen instructions, voice guidance and customisable detour behaviour. Use your touch enabled gloves to operate the specially designed user interface.
Going off the beaten track? Into areas without cell phone reception? No problem, with offline maps Scenic doesn't need a connection while you are navigating.
Scenic not only navigates you, but also tracks your location, speed and elevation. Nice to have a log of all your rides.
Take pictures along the way and add a comment. Scenic remembers where you took them and will save them with your rides.
How much have I been riding on my old Yamaha? Have I been riding less this year? What was my overall average speed this week? How many rides have I done this month? Scenic will tell you!

Ratings and Reviews
Reliable, easy to use, precise, and super convenient!
I own a 2019 Harley-Davidson Street Glide with the optional larger screen Infotainment GPS system and leading group rides. I also love the power of my Apple iPad Pro 11 inch (new Pro models that came out on late 2018) and coupled with the Scenic app and an Apple Pencil (2nd generation) you have a powerful Road Captain ride planning console that has taken my ride planning game to the next level. I love the graphics, the ability to place waypoints with pinpoint precision (with some practice), and being able to do so from the comfort of wherever I am (my favorite leather chair, my bed, or sitting at a bar as I plan away with my favorite drink to go along). I love that I can also download Scenic on my iPhone and check ride plans on the fly and even make tweaks and adjustments on the fly. I also love that I can export GPX files directly from my iPad onto a memory stick from which I can then easily load ride plans onto my Harley's Infotainment system (which has a beautiful mapping interface IMO). I have friends that are hard core Garmin BaseCamp lovers but they have seemingly fallen asleep at the wheel as they haven't yet developed a compelling and user-friendly app for iOS devices. I highly recommend Scenic and celebrate Guido's work. By the way he is super responsive to questions and publishes a great newsletter too!
Made for motorcyclists! Enough said!
I was an early adopter of Scenic when it first launched and I was a big fan of it back then even though the developers were still working out some bugs. With the new update last year, I’ve really gotten to get to this app and realize at just how great it is for motorcyclists. I like that I can download maps that work for me with my subscription And I can always get more if I need them. I like how things on the screen are meant to be glove friendly with large buttons and very simple app navigation features. I love that I can now create a simple Nav route and it gives me various filters to use to customize the route. Long and slow. No problem. Most direct route, no problem. Also being able to create a custom turn by turn route using the route builder on the phone, during ride, is unheard of by the apps that I’ve seen. I’d like to see a few route organization with features like click these 10 routes and put them in this folder.
Very useful app for motorcycle trip planning and riding.
I have had the app for about 3 months and, with the assistance of the developer, have come to depend on it for both functions listed in the title.
Planning. Using IPad, the screen is large enough to create routes, which allows you to use the most unique feature supplied: the curvy setting. Once you get the curvy route drawn, use waypoints to lock them in, then edit the route allowing highways and/or efficient routing, and you can plan a day’s travel to meet your needs. The tip from Guido, the developer, that made this more possible is to look at saved trips in the edit mode, which allows for full screen viewing. Syncing your ride from the IPad and then on your phone allows you to take the route to the bike.
Riding. Once you have a trip route saved, or if you import and edit a publicly posted ride, you can then navigate it. The in-route map and turn-by-turn directions blue toothed into my helmet make following the route very easy. I like the features that show you where the next turn will be, speed limit and current speed and the map details.
Certainly download and use this app with the credits supplied, but take the time to learn how to use it. Once you do, if you like to plan out routes and then ride them, the price of subscription and credits needed for off-line maps, can be justified by the features described above, in my opinion.
