Ratings and Reviews
Where did riding conditions go?
Been using for the last month. Like the app, but suddenly lost riding conditions. Fortunately I read a head a little and a local reminded us of a section of 94 to stay off of. Also, elevation is way off on some routes which has made planning a little difficult. Will send examples later.
Developer Response ,
Currently, the riding conditions require an internet connection but we will look to cache these within the app in a future release to make sure they are always available. Let us know if you are still having an issue getting to the riding conditions when you have an active internet connection.
Needs to be fleshed out
I agree with others that this app needs to incorporate Google’s biking layer to fully understand the route and the nearby options. Turn by turn directions are also a must.
Finally, I live near a former campground in Northern Michigan that was sold and now a developer is putting up a BnB, but there was no way that I could see to pass this information along to ACA or to fellow travelers. A note-taking function might also be helpful for me incorporate trail knowledge learned along the way.
On the plus side, I like being able see the route, the elevation, and points of interest.
Developer Response ,
@Dfree617 - We do have the OpenCycleMap layer incorporated into the app which shows cycling infrastructure and works both online and offline. This can be used in place of the Google Cycling layer.
We hope to incorporate a map correction feature in the future, but for now, this information can be shared with Adventure Cycling through the online map correction form.
We appreciate the feedback!
Map zoom and alternate routes
When using the navigation the zoom level is too tight. Unlike other navigation maps one cannot zoom out. That is, while one is moving. If stationary i can zoom out but as soon as I move the zoom snaps to an almost useless level.
The map does not offer alternate routes to a point that may be off route. Requiring back and forth with other navigation apps.
The display of the map is far too pale. Non route connecting roads are practically impossible to see when navigating.
It would be useful to see them as a guide back to the route in cases where a make detour of a few streets.
Mote information could be added to the info panels. Perhaps gathered from recent users.
I would have loved to see up to date info for campgrounds and towns. Like a rating of campsites or details of amenities. Options for stores within local range.
