EasyRoute is a route planner for outdoor activities like running, biking and walking.

Simply tap the places you want to go along the way. It will follow roads and paths while also providing the freedom to route directly where you touch.

You can use EasyRoute for all of the following:

• Plan biking, running or walking routes while customizing them to be both enjoyable and safe. You can simply tap your start and destination points, or tap roads or paths you’d prefer to use along the way. You can drag the route to customize it as well.

• Let it guide you through the route on either iPhone or Apple Watch. It works equally well in the background so you can use it alongside any of the great workout tracking and analysis apps in the App Store, including the built-in workout app. (With an Apple Watch, you can also optionally record a workout to Health while following a route)

• Customize the directions by adding, editing or removing instructions.

• Download data for offline use, so you can route in areas with no network connection.

• Share routes with others or export them to your devices -- works great with Wahoo ELEMNT bike computers! ;)

• Schedule a route and have a shown as a watch complication.

• Enable iCloud to make routes on your iPad and sync them to your iPhone

There are still many more tweaks, improvements, features and enhancements planned.

Note if you go off the route while following it, EasyRoute will issue some simple guidance and provide the right instruction when you come back on, but it does not (yet) do full re-routing.

Thanks for reading this far down and considering this little app.

Awesome, but Map Box introduces a wrinkle

I love(ed) this app. Perhaps the simplest way of any tool on the web or app-based for mapping out a cycling or running route. The “export to GPX” file allows me to plan a route, export to Garmin Connect, and have it on my watch or cycling computer in seconds.

Recently the mapping changed to something called Map Box. It seems Mapbox “hates” certain roads, unless you change the routing option (click the little map icon in the lower right) to “Car.” This occurs primarily on US and State numbered highways, which in rural areas are usually two lane roads. I’m fine if MapBox wants to keep me off I95 and the George Washington Bridge in NYC, but blocking a two lane road doesn’t make any sense.

If you find you’re fighting to make the app route where you want, turn on the car option and all should be well.

Excellent route builder!!!

This is a great app, much easier to use than any of the other route builders including those built into garmin connect and Strava.
I’ve been using it for a couple years. It is very intuitive and easy to use. Well thought out and executed.

Better Than The Big Guys!

I’ve used Komoot and Ride with GPS, this app beats them hands down when it comes to *easily* planning a cycling route! I ride with a Wahoo ELEMNT Bolt and the data from EasyRoute syncs perfectly for turn-by-turn directions, just be sure to export as a .FIT file (I had to learn this after my first export didn’t have turn-by-turn). To be sure, this app is fairly basic (and free!). But that’s all I want. The other options are overly complicated and require hours of learning to use them properly. I figured out EasyRoute’s interface in a matter of minutes and the drag route feature is truly awesome!
