There are plenty of navigation apps out there, so which one should you choose?
We have used MyRoute-app for several years to plan our rides in Australia and Europe, so get ready - we're about to share our experience of using the Gold subscription.
Check out the exclusive offer at the end of this blog!
MyRoute-app makes it easy to create routes with hundreds of waypoints for each ride - so there's no chance you'll get lost!
The Points Of Interest feature gives you instant visibility of fuel stops, campgrounds, hotels, attractions and so much more. This is especially useful for us when we're in an unfamiliar area. Get creative and choose different colours for your waypoints to reflect the POI you’ve chosen.
The toolkit allows you to avoid toll roads, highways, unpaved roads etc, and you can even disable the seasonal closures feature - essential for us when we're planning rides in snow-affected areas.
And if you want to know the dizzy heights you're going to reach, simply click the 'heightgraph' symbol to see the elevation of your route.
You can create routes in OpenStreetMaps, TomTom or HERE (MRA Navigation/Garmin) formats. HERE is our favourite because it shows the topography - all the better for finding twisties!
Exporting your routes will suit any navigation device - simply choose your files to be gpx, itn, tpf, trf, kml, kmz - the list goes on.
If organising makes your OCD-self happy, like us, you can easily create folders for your routes and even share them with friends or make them public within the MyRoute-app universe.
MyRoute-app is easy to use and makes planning a breeze. Check out how we use it to research rides for our books.
