Let’s me do exactly what I bought my Apple Watch for (ALMOST!!)

Great app, I bought the Apple Watch so I could get bike directions on the go, turns out Google got rid of their app on watchOS years ago and Apple maps still famously doesn’t have bike directions in 2019 (shame on you Apple!).

The only thing that I’d like this to do is play the audio from the watch in my earbuds connected to my phone. I’ve worked around this by setting navigation on both devices, and looking at the Watch while listening to the same directions on my phone.

This is obviously not optimal for battery life, so I’m giving this 4 stars, but I want to give it a 3.5. I will change it to 5 stars if the either a) directions came thru the earbuds without navigating on my phone as well, or b) navigation on my phone can be sent to the watch with a button or similar command, to at least streamline my current workaround.

Good job fulfilling the market void of bicycle directions in cities!

A great option, some cool features!

I have only used for about 50km of riding, in EU, but it promises to be great. I have often used G***le maps for its offline feature, but that doesn’t allow bike layers in offline mode. This also allows different map options, so it will be fun to try bike routes with Apple and OpenStreet maps. I like the bike computer function, fun to see how fast I go down some large hills and to moderate my pace on rides I don’t want to get all sweaty!
The health integration is great, as is the privacy approach! The auto stop/start seems great for tracking to reduce distractions at the more dangerous times (intersections for example).
Two critiques so far, when stopping to inspect the map a few times, it seemed to start flipping orientation randomly. This was an intermittent error. Also at one point the map started flashing as if my screen LEDs were in strobe mode, perhaps a bug conflicting with the outdoor brightness function of the phone.
Thanks for the single family purchase option, keep up the great work and thanks for this great resource!

Nice App. Should be more intuitive.

Three stars because this app works better than the usual basic map functions found on the cycling training apps where mapping functions are a second tier after thought. I have several quibbles with the heavy traffic street and route selections in my urban area, but if one is careful with the route planning feature, which is nominally spot on, construction zones, mis-labeled streets and dangerous intersections can easily be avoided.
As a retired systems developer, my major beef with this app is the user interface in it’s entirety. I have attempted to use the app as would a normal, semi-technical recreational rider who wants only to set a route from origin to destination, ride the route with several detours and other departures, and then save it to a catalogue for future use and incorporation as part of a larger personal route map overlay. This completely normal expectation should be intuitive from on screen controls and proper on screen prompts and user documentation.
I will stick with this app because it is very useful. I am very impressed with the multiple map selection and basic simplicity.
Five stars when the onscreen controls, comprehensive user interface and full documentation are completed.
