Great app, with a killer feature that is overlooked
As a new rider my significant other is of course concerned. I tried all the Motorcycle routing and tracking apps, and none of them had this one killer feature that I’m not sure stands out enough. Safety SMS. Yep, you configure your safety contact and start a ride in the app, they get a text message with a link to your live location. You finish a ride in the app, they get a text message that you arrived at your destination. That feature is amazing. There are other apps out there that you can share your location with, but none I found that auto-trigger an SMS message with a link at the start of a ride, and another SMS message when you are finished. That right there will keep me on Rever.
There’s some things I think they could do to make the app even better though. Speed overlay on the map is one. Right now you have to drop down a panel to see your speed. Would be great to see it as an overlay on the map itself (think Waze). Different color schemes other than that Orange and Black (minor but pretty is everything these days). Lean angles would be cool. Also, a curvy / ultra-curvy route planner (hint, there’s a competitor with it) would be sweet as well. None of the above pushes me away from the product, and it shouldn’t cause you to look elsewhere either. Roadmap of the product though could grow a great app into an amazing one.

Thank you for your great review and kind feedback! We are pleased to hear that you are enjoying the Safety SMS feature. We are working on some of the features you mentioned! For curvy, we have Butler Maps which are roads based on scenery and twisty which is way more valuable when planning a ride. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at email@example.com
Pretty good app
Have to agree with others comments about in App editing (or lack there of). Not a deal breaker. Used this exclusively for our recent trip around WA, ID, and MT. I had set up several preplanned routes in the weeks before. Was handy to have multiple options as our plans changed. I think if you’re meticulous about your trip preplanning, it’s a pretty decent app for that. For tracking it does alright too. Burns through my battery on my phone pretty quickly (wasn’t plugged in all the way). Had a couple incidents where it kept tracking me but randomly kicked off of the map page for whatever reason. All in all I think I might like it better than Gaia, as it offers the options for Trails, touring, adventure and other filters. A good solid 4 stars.
Close, but no cigar
I used Rever for a couple years. I was a premium user most of that time. However, somewhere along the line, the app stopped working for me. Every time the app closed, I’d be forced to login again. This wouldn’t be too much of an issue if it didn’t happen when I turned my screen off during a break or a long stretch of road to save battery. When I did this, the app would log me out, deleting any trip data I just gained. This also ruined the use of the REVERGo thing. If my app is logged out, it wouldn’t auto track my rides. Since the app seemed to be failing me, I tried the Rlink device out, for about an hour. Since the app kept hanging or crashing while activating, I was never able to actually get a ride in with it. Luckily, customer service was quick to help me out and let me return it. After that, I cancelled my premium membership and have been looking for alternatives. Still, I try the app whenever they have an update in hopes that my issues are solved. They’re not.
