    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.

    Been using this German planner:

    https://kurviger.de/en

    Exports to a variety of formats and has two cool features that allows you to plan adjusting the curviness of the route and plan a random roundtrip just by setting a direction and distance.

    There's also an Android App with turn-by-turn navigation (pro version only).

    Any new GPS, App or device takes a little getting used to. It's the fun of trying something new and working with it that makes it easy to use. So far, I've been playing with and learning the apps for the Spyder and it's getting easier and easier. Every once in a while something goes funny and things lock up or crash but then my old Garmin and Tomtom did the same.

    Obviously, are a number of route planners available. I like trying different ones from time to time, but I always come back to Tyre and MyRouteapp to finalize the route. I most definitely like it the best for features, functionality, adaptability and reliability.

    Unless I'm planing a route for a few people I use my garmin zuno 396 in Adventurous mode . Basically put in your destination and it finds a hilly curvy non highway to get there .
    Takes the hassle of doing it yourself and it finds roads I've never considered riding on with great results . myroute is my goto when planing a dedicated route though .

    My understanding is that Tyre is no longer supported and is going away. Are you still able to use it?

    Tyre is their desktop planner, it's still supported although getting maps to show there has not been easy.
    They have gone to openstreetmap and back to gmaps now, but the licensing now for these are not user friendly (you need to open an account there to get a valid ID).

    MyRouteApp is the successor, runs on mobile platform and web.

    I use the paid Rever subscription and have for a number of years. I've used the Butler maps to plan many rides in areas where I have never been and have had generally great results. That said, I've tried to "push" the planner to take me on some very minor roads that ended up being private, so it can help to see if a ride also can be planned in Google Maps if you are looking for the most obscure of routes. You should never have an issue with the Butler Maps.

    I use it on my phone which is mounted to my Spyder and connect to my helmet, and don't export it. They have options based on both waypoints (that creates turn by turn directions, but the routing between the waypoints is automatic, so you need to be smart about how those are selected) and creating a path to follow.

    It isn't perfect, but they do seem to work on making it better whenever they can, and it is the best option I've found. I would recommend the app - but get used to it before using it on a major ride in areas that you don't know.
