Improvements and bugs fixes
Ratings and Reviews
I’ve have been using the app for a few days now, of course while the trails are closed, I’m limited as to what I can do.
Looks like ride planning using the “pro version” will be a nice feature.
Can’t wait for hunting season to close, then when clubs open trails, I can see how the nyssa phone app works.
Missing one *big* feature.
This app continues to improve every year. But it seems like it lacks one big thing that should be simple to add - audio prompts during turn-by-turn navigation. (Unless I am just missing it. I have not used the 2024 version out on trail yet…). With audio it can be used “heads up” with your phone kept warm in your pocket and connected to a helmet communicator or a wireless earbud. Even something as simple as “turn approaching” would be helpful, but I see no reason why this app couldn’t speak simple directions like every on-road navigation app does.
Great for on the trail info
I can see quickly exactly where I am while out on the trails. Unfortunately snowmobile trails are poorly marked and it’s easy to get lost if you’ve not ridden in the area.
