Love the app, wish there was better segment/social networking support

I am so grateful for the RideWithGPS app. I’ve ridden over 7,000 miles with its assistance over the last 2 years. Routing is fairly seemless, though there is some serious memory hogging through the website platform in Safari and Chrome on Mac(save regularly!).

I am recently disappointed by load failures in the segment portion of both mobile and browser platforms. Segment data often does not load, mobile notifications and emails open empty pages in app and browser, and it is difficult to find or create new segments. In a huge cycling community like NYC, it would be great to have better social integration in this regard. PLEASE don’t become Strava or anything so Facebookish, but the segment section is the one area that UI improvement could help connect cyclists riding similar routes, for fun and safety (buddy system for the win!).

Thank you again for such a great app🙏 Final feedback is more for Garmin - make Edge 1030 Plus more seemless with RWGPS; without an internet connection, it is difficult to share routes created in the app and routing through the garmin connect app pales in comparison to RWGPS on mobile🤌

Great for navigation, lacking for metrics

Ride With GPS is pretty great, though is biased more towards mapping and navigation more than metrics and fitness. The route planning and voice-guided navigation is really impressive. While it’s wonderful to be able to connect to my Garmin Varia (which Cyclemeter cannot do), many of the settings menus are only accessible during a ride and not easy to find. It would be nice to have a selection of screens to choose from, as the majority of the screen is dedicated to the map, making few, small font metrics visible on screen. The Apple Watch heart rate connection worked easily. I was able to connect it to my Duotrap (Trek speed and cadence sensor) without an issue, but it seems unnecessarily difficult to get recorded workouts pushed into Apple Health or Strava. For instance, I swore I had enabled to switch for Apple Health, but when I finished my ride the workout did not get pushed. Unfortunately, there’s no way to retroactively get completed workouts sent to Apple Health. And the Strava connection does not occur on the device, only by connecting your RWGPS account to your Strava account online. Incredible potential, needs just a few tweaks. I’m not sure I’m ready to commit to an annual subscription just yet, but I could definitely see subscribing on an as-needed basis for a week/month at a time. The guided navigation was so helpful during a 100 mile ride on a route we’d never taken before.

Best cycling app I have found

I have been using ridewithgps since 2015 and it has become my favorite cycling app and website. It allows me to plan safe routes for my rides in advance and then use my smart phone to navigate the route on my bike. It logs my ride, shows me stats, gives me audible turn by turn directions, shows me the elevation profile and much more. I used the free version for years and it met all of my needs. Last year I upgraded to paid version so that my wife (and friends) can track my rides in real time so that she knows I’m safe, which is well worth the money for me. Photos taken while logging a ride can be embedded into the route, which is a nice feature.

I recently had a problem with the app where it wouldn’t go into navigation mode. I was frustrated as it was the only time in over four years the app didn’t work flawlessly. I emailed tech support and they immediately responded. One of the company founders called me on a Saturday morning and helped get it working for me. They then updated the app to fix the bug. Because of their excellent customer service and the unique features of the app I rate them five stars without hesitation.
