  • I tried OSMAnd...very cumbersome trying to load a route, having to import a file into one of its folders.  While seemingly very customizable, I didn't care for having to import a GPX file into an app folder to follow a route with navigation. 

    I've also pulled the trigger on the RideWithGPS membership and have used their voice navigation feature...which was very easy to use, and worked well.  As indicated in other posts, it doesn't provide course correction if you miss a turn but does give an audible alert.  That said, it was easy to create a route, launch the voice navigation feature and record the ride.

    Ideally, Strava will develop this feature and make it an all-in-one app.  I'd gladly upgrade from my free membership, as I did with RideWithGPS, for the feature.  I hope their developers are reading these Blog posts and are paying attention.

  • Only thing stopping me from upgrading to Premium is that it does not provide turn by turn audio navigation. Once implemented, I'd be sure ti upgrade, and provided upgrade costs do not increase.

  • Thanks for all the info guys - great source of discussion here. I have tried Co-Rider - it was useless everytime I have tried it unfortunately.

     

    Now... what about the new Apple Watch... Stick a Strava app on there with turn by turn and bang - we have a great solution - great hardware from Apple and great app build from Strava - best of both worlds... I was about to purchase an Edge - maybe even a 1000 - but I am seriously wondering now if the days of the Edge are numbered with Apple releasing the Watch - seems to be a very likely great tool for runners / cyclists with the app market - allowing everyone to create something compelling to work on the hardware...

     

    Thoughts?

  • I use RideWithGPS for turn by turn directions and route planning. It works great and can run at the same time as Strava if you want to have turn by turn AND record on Strava at the same time. You can also export GPX files and import them into RideWithGPS to create a route that has turn by turn directions. You can even add your own voice information to the map like "Top of hill", "sharp curve ahead", etc....

  • I have to say that I prefer the RideWithGPS route planner better than Strava's simply because it seems to be more graphically accurate.  Specifically, when I plan a route with the Strava app, it likes to draw lines that cut corners rather than following the actual depiction of the roads.  That might make sense for mountain bikers, but doesn't work for me.  I had the same result on multiple systems, so I ruled out personal computer issues.

     

    I hadn't considered using both RideWithGPS and Strava simultaneously.  I think I'll do so on my next ride.  To this point, I've been recording on RWGPS and exporting the GPX file to Strava for logging purposes.

     

    Matt...Can you provide instructions on how to add voice info?  That sounds like a helpful feature for new, previously uncharted rides.

  • Re: the Apple Watch idea.  If it had a reliable heart monitor, that could be a great formula (even if Apple's price point will likely be over the top).  I've read that accuracy of most wrist heart monitors are questionable...and that the most reliable monitor is the wrap around the torso type.  So...If the wrist monitor type doesn't work out, I'd like to minimize the number of components I take along for the ride.  I'd like jettison my sensor based speedometer and consolidate with a legitimately smart smartphone (which I need to bring anyway in case I have to call for help).

  • If we can plan routes on our laptops or other devices and plot this on our GPS device that we carry (i-phone for me) and then I would subscribe. It comes across that 50% of the app is missing - it can only do the AFTER and NOT the BEFORE.. Come on Strava. I want to use it but hasn't route planning been in cars for the past decade (if not longer)....

  • Agree with all the above. It absolutely baffles me that you can create a route for yourself (which is great, as just done one) it goes to your app, BUT you can't then just 'start your ride' with voice navigation to your destination. It would be totally dangerous to keep looking down at your phone or having to stop/start checking your phone on the side of the road. In this day and age with the technology we have available, this simple yet vitally important feature (like an old tom tom out in 2002) would massively help every rider. This would also be really helpful when going out on a long ride with a number of other people and when working at the front to know where your riding, this should be so simple to create the route before hand, send to other Strava riders and be all set for a group ride. Having one earpiece in to hear the navigation and one for the road noises. Come on Strava, sort it out for all your members and for our safety on the road. If this is a cost thing, make it a premium service only and your upgrades would go through the roof.

  • @ Richard Harrison - route planning is now available in beta on the strava website.  I just tried it today and seems to work very well.  What's cool about it is that you can overlay the Strava heatmap so you can see what roads are most frequently traveled by cyclists.  It also has the option to automatically create a route between waypoints based on the 'most popular'.  Very cool.  I was able to export the GPX file and copy to my phone to use within OsmAnd for voice directions.  Works for now.  Integrated voice solution from Strava will be awesome!

  • If I were a cynic, I'd be inclined to believe that Strava's interest is in being acquired by the likes of Facebook.  Therefore, the company strategy would be to focus on the social media aspect of its app which I admit is pretty fun.  Anything else would be a distraction...including navigation functions already provided by RideWithGPS or Garmin.  Strava's lack of acknowledgement, for that which we've all been crying out for, seems to indicate their lack of interest in providing a robust cycling app.  Well....that's what I might believe if I were a cynic.

  • Thanks everyone! We hear your feedback, and agree this would be a meaningful feature to add in the future. We're currently busy with other projects, but will carefully consider this development as we plan for 2015. 

    For those of you who have tried the workaround with the OSMAnd mapping app (for Android) mentioned here, please continue to leave us feedback on how we can improve this experience. 

    And, continue to add your vote by pressing the "Me Too" button. It will be helpful as we plan to make use of your feedback and discuss our options with this feature going forward.

  • I'm pretty tired of using MapMyRide for my turn by turn in tandem with Strava. I heard the reason was that giving turn by turn directions was against google maps terms of service...is this true?

  • Does MapMyRide do turn by turn navigation according to a route of your choice? (Based on cues) Or does it navigate purely based on end point (destination)?

  • Oops, my bad...I mean Ride With GPS. Ride with GPS has full (and good!) mapping tools. When you are going to use turn by turn directions you can add your own cue points in...like "top of climb" or whatever and it will read them out loud. I use it while running Strava and Spotify for music and it works wonderfully!

  • I am sorry, but contrary to some other comments, I am not ready to pay for this feature. This should be part of the basic app. There are so many good Turn-by-Turn GPS apps for driving that are free of charge, I don't see why  I should pay for a Turn-by-Turn GPS app for running / cycling. Wait a bit and Google will certainly come with its own running app and all this will be free of charge...

  • I've used the RideWithGPS navigation and it does work very well. Although I won't hold my breath, when someone comes out with the same feature that works as well, I'll cancel my $6 per month membership :)

    I am curious to know what great features Strava is working on that is more desirable than what its users are requesting so loudly.

  • So I found these excerpts in a Velo News article re: the Garmin and Strava relationship; specifically the automatic upload of ride data from Garmin devices to Strava.  While it sounds one-sided, I wonder if it sheds some light on Strava's reluctance to tread into Garmin navigation territory....

    "...Today’s scorecard shows Strava dozens of runs ahead of Garmin Connect in the realm of online ride-sharing and comparing. But Strava relies on the GPS maker to record athletes’ activities, and both brands need the other to survive. Up until now, though, there was no cohesion between the two."

    "...This new partnership is entirely one-way. Garmin Connect users can link their accounts on the Strava website, and then all rides uploaded to Garmin Connect will go directly to Strava. Strava is not sending rides uploaded in its site back to Garmin Connect. So, it would seem that the major winner here is Strava, and of course riders who use a Bluetooth-enabled Garmin device, like the Edge 510, 810, and 1000.

    Further cooperation between Garmin and Strava is in no way guaranteed, but given the symbiotic nature of the relationship, it would not come as a surprise."

    I've waited long enough for Strava to weigh in on the outcry for this feature, and have purchased a Garmin 510.  While the Garmin does not have voice call out of the turns, it does have turn-by-turn navigation.  At the end of the day, I guess the Garmin battery will always outlast a smartphone and will be better for rides longer than say 4 hours or so.  As I mentioned earlier, I'll use the Strava app as a Facebook for cyclists.  So...if their relationship is truly symbiotic, then I guess they both win with consumers like me but at the cost of consumers who don't want to purchase a Garmin device.

  • You are welcome to try RunGo that has "Turn by Turn" directions it can be used along with Strava (running both apps together works). Here is a fun video we made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxkDiTMNIfM

  • RunGo looks good, but pre-registered routes are just too few (none where I live).

    You should make it possible to import a route/segment from the Strava website's "segment explore" / "segment search"

  • I agree with P P, above. Voice navigation like a car GPS is very important. Running on the same route with same hills and downs. Becomes very very boring. It will be awesome if strava can help me explore my city and neighborhoods by running.

     

    Also getting phone out reduces the speed and sometimes I have to stop to avoid getting lost. Please add this feature for runners and bikers. if this feature is implemented I think I'll switch to strava, it has every other thing that I need.

  • What a pity there is no turn by turn voice for my created routes or saved strava rides. Being Dyslexic means I rely on someone telling me when and where to turn otherwise I am.......lost. I can't study maps while on the move and enjoy getting of the main roads with my road bike. This would also enhance the cycling experience so please can we have verbal turn by turn? Thank you.

  • P P, RunGo allows users to add their own routes on iOS using the in app route creator on and on both iOS and Android save and share a run as a route. In our next bid update we will be adding strava connection so we can navigate strava routes.

  • I think RunGo (I have tested it on iPhone) does a good job of turn by turn voice navigation.

    This app needs improvements but I think among other things the ability to create route on my desktop/laptop using web interface and then using it on RunGo will

    help me create routes in a better way.  I really like the feature where this app tells me that in 33 yards take a left turn.

  • Hi all

      Just a quick update on this, I used Strava for all my rides on an iPhone 5 and had to stop because the battery was being hammered and if anything happened on the ride I would not have access to a working phone.

    I recently changed my iPhone to the 8 so thought I would give Strava another go I ordered a Quadlock mount as it seems the best out there and purchased my STRAVA premium along with the Wahoo heart rate mon.

    So today Sunday 1/3/15 Off I went and after 3 hours the phone died from Full charge another interesting issue was that in Map view following a planned route I was having to turn the map around to face the way I was going.

    My advice to you is this if you use STRAVA for the stats from a garmin and you like the social side cool. If you acutely want to use something that will record your Speed heart rate and Candace along with GPS then don't bother with STRAVA get a Garmin 

    Very disappointed

  • Hi Terry, I have an iPhone 5C with QuadLock mount. There are a few things which extends battery life: - switch off brightness automatically. I always set it at a level which I can see my screen. - switch off as many apps to refresh in background - during your ride, turn off the screen I can ride over 100km without having to charge my iPhone. On longer rides I carry a powerbank in my backpocket.

  • Hi Chantal Coolsma

     

      Many thanks for the reply only STRAVA was set to refresh in the background and I agree if you never put the screen on during the ride it would last longer, However when you are trying to follow a route you have to look at the screen as the map screen does you no favours when following.

    This is the 2nd time I have given STRAVA a go as I really like the idea of riding my bike and getting notifications when I get to an interesting section and want to try a climb the leader board. But given the performance I will just leave my phone in my pocket and use my Garmin Edge 1000 for the business end of my rides they just meed to invest a little more in to the Garmin Connect website.

  • Just bought 2 apps from ITunes . Ride with GPS and Co-Rider. GPS lets me create my own route which I can save to Co-Rider with turn by turn voice directions. It is class. If you pass a turn it lets you know. They cost only £4 each and no monthly payments.
