    Default REVER route planner

    Has anyone been using the REVER app/site to plan and upload routes to Garmin? I've been using the TYRE and MyRoute app for a few years and thought I'd give something else a try. Just curious if there are many thoughts about of REVER yet.

    Rever can be a GPS as well as be used to create routes. It can upload GPX files also. Don't think it's free though.

    I use it for tracking and a new feature is making 3D video of your route.

    Following...........what I need is an app that will let me "design" my own route. I love designing a route on Google Maps, but then can't transfer it to my iPhone as I have it routed. It will transfer but it designs it's own route. We don't like taking the "most direct or shortest route", being able to design our routes is a pleasure, but I have to make a note of the route and tape it to the tank so I know where I am going........or I make wrong turns and get lost (just ask my wife!).

    I checked it out last night and I liked it. It does say it is free with limited features for as long as you want but $60.00 a year if you want the full app.

    I've been using MyRouteApp (web site and iPhone apps) for 3 years and I'm very happy with it.

    You can do everything you're saying with it.

    You can also use it offline without using any of your data plan if you want.

    I haven't used a computer to create routes for 20 years. I learned to use the GPS unit then found it's much easier on the smartphone because of faster processor. I like to let the expensive devices do the work form and I can put a few points in and let the device do the work for me. I use Google to get an idea on where and how I want to go and then make the route on the phone.

    I spent some planning the ride I'm on now with Rever. Its certainly better than Garmin Basecamp that I've been using for the last 18 months.

    When i tried to export the trip it asked me to pay for a subscription, i dont know if that's due to the site using geolocation and recognising I'm in Australia.

    I'm on a trip to Lightning Ridge and basecamp had the town having only 3 streets, and the Hot Spring just around the corner from our accommodation. Turns out there are many more streets and the spring is 2km away. Rever had it correct.

    The more waypoints you include in the Google route the closer the GPS route will be. The GPS creates a route point to point. The closer the points are to each other the less latitude in route planning you give to the GPS.

    I have used this program to covert routes to a GPX file that I customize in Google maps. I then upload the the GPX file to my Garmin GPS.

    I have used Basecamp but it’s not user friendly.
