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!

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.

Incredible app!! But room for improvement

This app is perfect if you’re a cyclist with an Apple Watch. Look no further.

Searching for POIs is great — you either scribble or speak. It’s super fast and reliable.

The directions are also great. Big arrows for where to turn, and it’s just so nice to be able to glance at your wrist and see what the next step is.

The actual navigation also seems to be pretty spot on. A couple times it has taken me a weird way, but it’s mostly great.

One thing I’d love to see is increased street name font. The big turn arrows are great, but legibility of the actual street names is tough when you’re moving fast and want to catch it at a quick glance.

I’d also love to see ETA. They show you total miles but that’s it.

This app is definitely worth it! Excited to see more improvements!
