Ratings and Reviews
Great for running abroad and updates activity app
I created a custom route before going overseas, then uploaded to the apple watch. I had no cell data service on my phone or watch while abroad so couldn't navigate with a map but it worked great, telling me when I went off the route and also tracked my extra lap. The data automatically added to the Activity app, so didn't need to run the workout app in parallel. my only gripe was the splits show in the rungo app but are not transferred to the activity app, but its still the best running app i've tried
Close, just needs some tweaking
I travel a lot for work, 14 days out of the month I’m in a different city and different hotel. I love the fact that I can look up or create a route the night before and then go run it the next day. The turn-by-turn directions are great and exactly why I use RunGo.
The one thing I’d like to see tweaked is Off Route. For example, I was running on Frank Sinatra Dr in Rancho Mirage, the road is two lanes in both directions with a center island with a sidewalk on only one side. RunGo kept telling me I was Off Route because (I assume) I was on the wrong side of the road compared to what I had created.
The other Off Route issue is a lack recalculating of the route, or at least an option to. For example, same run as above, I had unwittingly created a route that went through a private gated community. No big deal, I’ll just go around and come back the same way I came, pick it up on the other side. Voice prompts were reminding me every 30 seconds that I was off route. Annoying to the point I had to quit the app. Hopefully they can get this fixed, every GPS in the world automatically recalculates when you’re off route.
Cool idea but needs some improvements
I decided to load a local 25k trail run to follow and it was really frustrating to use especially if you can't use the map the whole time and you are just listening to it. After 400 ft after I'd do a climb it would tell me I'm going the wrong way. Then it keeps saying to turn right/left constantly when there is no other trail path to go so it was really confusing especially when there was actually intersection of trail paths to take. It would help to have a compass on the map and then have the current location dot be an arrow so you know what way you are facing. When you actually click on to find your current location it barely zooms in on it. I'm sure this is probably meant for roads instead of trails. I'd be wary of using it again on trails especially at a place I am not familiar with. I'm not sure if there is anyway they could have it take less battery too that could just be my Apple device's problem.
Developer Response ,
Sorry it sounds like you may have picked a bad route, please send a message to email@example.com and we can fix that route. Since routes are created by users they can vary in quality. Thank you for your suggestions for the zoom and arrow.
