  • Add me too. I just started to use Strava and the lack of this feature added 5 miles to my ride today because I expected this feature to be there and, of course, it was not. Despite the many other nice features, Strave is useless to me without this feature.

  • Its now been nearly 3 years since this comment was first posted and Im amazed that this facility has not been implemented. Strava could easily cover any costs involved in developing this facility by an increase in subscriptions from all of us here who are holding out until this is implemented. It just doesn't make any sense

  • Furthermore, despite the high demand for this feature, there has been little to no response from Strava on the topic. I'm honestly disappointed in Strava's volentary ignorance of this. Even a post staying the intention (or lack thereof) would be nice. I no longer pay for Strava due to this and instead pay ride with GPS. I'd rather do Strava, as more of my riding friends are here. At this point I'm trying to bring them to ride with GPS - strictly because of this feature. Sad.

  • I've given up on Strava and gone to "Ride with GPS" which does offer voice navigation. Too bad Strava doesn't either monitor this site or care! Either way Strava should be embarrassed that they don't interact with those few faithful customers that want to help them improve their products so I'm going to shamelessly recommend a competitor site using Strava's own tool for improving their own product...the joke is on Strava:(

    I'm impressed with Ride with GPS and recommend it if you want voice nav to existing routes created by others from other apps like MapMyRide. It has easy import of file formats from other applications and lets you modify any route and then add the turn by turn instructions by recreating the route...this is a bit clunky but it works.

  • Android only, but I have had success with the Bike Tracker app (the one from PC Ability) for turn by turn navigation. It links to the routes on your free RideWithGPS account (You need an account, but not a paid one). Bike Tracker is also FREE ! You can save your phone's data usage allowance by downloading your routes to your phone on your wifi. There is a map option (which would use your data allowance), but in 20+ rides, I have never needed to use it. I let the app guide me and if I deviate off the route, I trust the app to guide me back to the route. The phone stays in my bag - its too much of a distraction to be checking maps at junctions.

    I have simultaneously run Bike Tracker (to follow the RideWithGPS route) and Strava (to record the ride on Strava) with no problems

    I've found Bike Tracker quite versatile and have also used it for turn by turn navigation on several walks.

    Not tried the RideWithGPS app for turn by turn navigation (can't seem to get my hand in my pocket), but I've tried OSMand and prefer Bike Tracker.

  • Can someone from Strava at least tell us if this is something that is being considered?

  • I had a recent run in with a sign post because I was looking down at my phone when I should have been looking ahead. Not having turn-by-turn audio makes routes and maps useless and UNSAFE!

  • Unfortunately I no longer plan to give Strava my money as they don't plan to add this feature. I can't think of any feature they don't already have that could possibly be more important than this.

  • Using Cycle Tracks GPS on W10m which has audio directions. Uploads automatically to Strava and RidewithGPS  I just watch all the Garmin users fly past turns because their Garmin has lost signal, they weren't looking at it or it has frozen. Phone GPS is so much better. The battery lasts all day as you aren't using a screen.

  • For the last 2 weeks I've been using a Wahoo Element Bolt.  It does a really nice job as a whole and autouploads to Strava and RideWithGPS.  Maps are built in, but has a steep up front cost.  Worth looking at.  Still, it should just be in this app.

  • Until Strava has turn-by-turn voice notification, there is no point in paying for this app. It is the single most required feature of a running app; aside from actually tracking my run everything else is superfluous by comparison.

  • With RunGo you get turn by turn voice navigation for running with the free app, the premium version lets you export your data as GPX that can imported back to Strava.

  • Strava has said they are not going to do it so I'm keeping my money in my pocket. For all the work they did making it a great biking app, they are really blowing a major amount of income from subscriptions. All they have to do is just make one upgrade for turn alerts for subscribers.

  • To have turn-by-turn directions would be amazing.

  • For me this is the biggest weakness in Strava and why I have stopped using it. The Nav feature for anything but the most simple routes is almost useless. Audio instruction as per my car nav is something that I'd be happy to pay for, especially if I could us it with a route designer on my laptop.

    Strava has basically stalled at the 'clever little app' stage and it's a massive lack of foresight on their part to not even have the development of a proper nav function in their schedule. And as this thread is over three years old...

  • I'm currently exporting all my ride data for 2017 to RideWithGPS because their Basic ($6/mon) plan includes this feature. If it works out I'll be dropping Strava Premium.

  • I'm a little surprised to see only the one recommendation for the Bike Track application.  I just installed it today and actually haven't used it yet.  However, it sounds like a fantastic app that seamlessly syncs with your Ride With GPS account and provides audio turn-by-turn directions and notifications prior to a turn, all for free (RWGPS charges for the turn notification feature).  There are a ton of additional features which I can't wait to try out.

  • . Looking at this thread shaking my head at the utter contempt being shown to this app users. It is obviously clear that some sort of turn by turn function is needed with this app for its brilliant features. While cycling it's a nightmare having to constantly stop to see if I'm on Route. Got so annoying I'm. Having to use Google maps... 😠😠😠😠😥😱😤

  • Google Maps is useless for anything but point-to-point navigation on a mobile device. Try plotting a complicated route created in Strava on Google Maps. It just doesn't work. I'm happy with RWGPS's turn-by-turn navigation and I only had to pay $6/mo vs. $10/mo for Strava without the feature.

  • I posted before, save your money - use the FREE Android Bike Tracker app, which links to a FREE RWGPS account. Did I mention that its FREE ?

  • So this bike tracker app... Can you give us a link or something more specific? I've found a few but they don't seem like 'it'. Btw, I'm with you, omsand is just a pain to use. I personally bought a wahoo element bolt, but I have friends who are still looking for a free phone solution and yours looks with investigating. (and I'm a fan of rwgps)

  • As I posted before, Bike Tracker is Android only. Go to Google Play Store, search for Bike Tracker ...  it never comes at the top of the list, scroll down and look for Bike Tracker by PC Ability (there are other apps of the same name). It links with your RWGPS account and allows you to download any of your RWGPS routes to your phone. I've found it pretty good.

    I have heard of a problem with it getting confused if you cover the same part of the route twice. If my routes are like this, I split it into two separate routes to avoid the problem. Also Bike Tracker is only as good as your RWGPS route - if there is a junction without a cue, you won't get a turn instruction. Always double check your route on RWGPS.

    I like RWGPS. One of the best features is the Find option (tick the "with cuesheets" box), and you will find lots of routes already created with cues, where somebody has done most of the legwork in creating your route.

    If you're not an Android user, then there are a few other options mentioned in this thread. Alternatively buy a second hand Android phone and dedicate it to cycling.

    I think OSMAnd has a place, especially if you ride a lot of off-road. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I've found that RWGPS mapping doesn't automatically add cues at track junctions (it does on road junctions), so you have to manually add them (bit of a pain) if you were to use Bike Tracker. However, OSMAnd seems to generate its turn instructions as you go, and does them for paths/tracks as well as roads. Also, if you want to check where you are, it uses Open Street Maps which shows all paths/tracks, not just roads. 

    Hope that helps.

  • These support forums are basically reasons not to pay for Strava premium. Is *any* new development which benefits the user and not simply Strava's bottom line planned?

    I mean: turn-by-turn navigation. That's just a basic requirement for a cycling app. But Strava doesn't even *plan* to have it.

  • I expected Turn by turn for running (particularly off road).

    Will not pay for Strava until this feature is implemented.

  • It's a pain that this doesn't exist for sure.  I imagine it's for some stupid legal reason, or the map API that supports strava doesnt support this feature.

    That said the solution for this takes about 5 seconds.  

    1) Build Map in Strava (it uses aggregate data from others to plan pretty effective routes)...the 5 second part starts after this step :)

    **Use a desktop

    2) Export the map (GPX)
    3) Upload the GPX to google maps
    4) Share your map with yourself (or whoever) so you can open it on your phone
    4) Get turn-by-turn for your route, while getting all the bonus features of google maps.

    Hope this is helpful to someone.
