  • All, As a hack you can sort of do this if you map a route on google maps and add destinations for the turn points.  When you're done there's a link you can use to "Send directions to phone" .  Once you do this and click on the link google maps will give you audible directions for the turns...but when in bike mode you have to click to continue the directions at each "destination" (turn point).  I'm going to try car mode to see if it lets you just roll through.

  • I am still staggered that Strava have stated this feature is not planned! Perhaps they are too cosy with the gps hardware suppliers? But I do love the social aspects of Strava.

    Meanwhile my own Android workaround:

    For voice guidance I tried RidewithGPS (which has a good map editor) but it costs money and on too many rides it lost the GPS signal and gave up recording the rest of the rides. Then I tried Bike Tracker (by PC Ability). It isn't fancy but it does give good voice guidance. It hasn't lost the GPS signal, and it has lots of help in the app. It directly accesses routes built in RideWithGPS.

    So if I need voice guidance:

    • I build the route in RWG (making sure it has a cue list)
    • I use Bike Tracker to access the RWG route (and record it as a backup)
    • I use Strava to record the ride (I could import the B.T. ride - but Strava auto uploads)

    Workarounds are all well and good - but hey Strava! Lets please have this in the app, and stop driving your customers into the arms of your rivals!

  • RideWithGPS does this beautifully!!! Is there a reason for all this begging and being ignored by Strava?!
    FWIW I use both Strava And RWGPS. Strava for the social media, record keeping (segment, Etc) and RWGPS for mapping and navigation.

  • I really need this feature. 

    I am a runner who likes to do trail running a lot. I use Viewranger app for navigating on tricky trail runs I plan, however of course I have to keep getting the phone out to look at the map to determine where to go next. What I really need are audio ques ie turn right in 100meters, turn left here, etc.  There is already an app that does something like this called RunGo , but their implementation is very buggy and lacks usability.

  • Hi everyone,

    Thank you for all your useful posts regarding Audio Turn-by-Turn not available on Strava mobile app.

    No, Google Map does not offer to upload GPX files anymore either.

    I got stocked too after creating routes on Strava desktop, so I searched and found an option that works:

    1) Create your route on Strava desktop or any other app you can create and export routes in GPX file format.

    2) Export the GPX file of the created route on the cloud (i.e. Google Drive, etc.)

    3) Download and install the free app Kromoot (iOS and Android - www.komoot.com) on your phone

    4) Open your web browser on your mobile phone or on your desktop and go to: http://www.komoot.com/upload/ (Kromoot support page: http://help.komoot.de/knowledgebase/articles/486300-gpx-export-and-upload)

    5) Log in to Kromoot and follow instructions to import your GPX file: http://help.komoot.de/knowledgebase/articles/486300-gpx-export-and-upload

    6) Select the GPX file saved on the cloud (i.e. Google Drive, etc.)

    7) Open Kromoot mobile app, and got to Profile. Your route should be below "Tours" "Planned X" (X for number of routes/files uploaded)

    8) To start the route navigation, Click on "Planned X", Select the route you would like to ride, run or hike, and Click on "Start Navigation".

    It will give you clear Audio Turn-by-Turn with Turn Left/Right with Street/Road Names and number of Miles/Km to follow that Street/Road.

    If you have time, please check your created route directly on Kromoot desktop app, because there might be few bugs due to the GPX file upload. I had only one minor detour of few meters on my 120Km route, so I can say it works!

    Used Kromoot mobile app in my pocket with headphones on, and felt I had a personal coach giving me directions.

    I loved it!

    Check it out, it is free!

    Thank you all,

    Sebastien

  • Turn by Turn is soooooooo needed.. I am having to use other products to do something that you should offer.

    Please move this to "it is happening" rather than "its not on our list of things to add"

    You allow exporting of TCX files so it can'#t be that blinking hard!

  • Thanks Sebastien for the suggestion of Komoot.  I've tried several similar apps and this is a new one for me.  I tried it today and it works really well,  Very nice UI and I really like that you can access the app from both mobile as well as the desktop PC (web) interface.  I also use an app called Bike Tracker which I've recommended here previously.  Bike Tracker doesn't have all the bells & whistles of Komoot but one thing Bike Tracker has that Komoot doesn't is an interface to RideWithGPS that allows you to download tracks directly from RWGPS.  No need to download the GPX on your desktop PC and then import it into Komoot.

  • I came to this thread looking to turn my turn by turn voice off to save battery.
    I have a garmin 1030 connected to my android s6 with garmin connect and it tells me the turns to take.
    I dont need that as the garmin beeps at junctions.

  • I think this feature would deepen Strava's product offering for a variety of sports (running, cycling, even the new triathalon-type feature. Anything where you have long activities). It would allow Strava to consolidate features that users are seeking elsewhere, and it doesn't look like turn by turn is offered in a compelling way by other apps. What a great opportunity! I wish Strava would focus on these deep "need to have" functional features rather than the light "nice to have" social features.

  • Personally, I run trails and wouldn't benefit from turn-by-turn navigation. However, an audible notification that I've departed my intended route would be really useful. Then I could just take my best guess and then try again if I hear the "departing route" message, without having to look at my phone.

  • Definitely a function that would be helpful...thanks for all the info on here. Just uploaded my routes into Kamoot. Worked easily :)

  • Hi everyone, 

    Using Komoot, as explained by Sebastien P, seems like a viable option. However, does anyone have experience with Naviki?

    and how does it compare to Komoot?  

    If not than I will try Naviki, and tell you about it.

  • I had a quick look at Naviki and it said that turn-by-turn navigation is a paid extra. 

    Similarly, Komoot says its "free", but you only get one free local area map - other maps are paid extra.

    So, I will be sticking with the true "free" apps like Bike Tracker and OSMAnd, which work fine for me.

  • I just installed Naviki.  I fired it up, tried it for about 5 minutes, then uninstalled it.  It has annoying ads and they charge for basic functionality (like turn by turn navigation) that most other apps offer for free.  I also wasn't impressed with the user interface.  Komoot is a much better app.

  • Have you tired RunGo, it offers turn by turn voice navigation and route creation for free.

  • I've tried RunGo and it's a pretty nice app.  However, as the name implies, it's geared toward running so you get running specific metrics like 'pace' (minutes per mile).  I asked them if they had plans to release an app called BikeGo and they said it's on the radar but no release date.

  • Hello Everyone,

    A quick update for turn-by-turn for Wahoo bike computer users:
    Another option that works great if you you have a Wahoo ELEMNT or equivalent, is to:
    1) upload your route to RidewithGPS
    2) from RidewithGPS website (unable to do same from the mobile app), once you are on the selected route page, select Share my route, from the pop up menu, select Wahoo (other bike computers are listed), and follows the prompts.
    3) open Wahoo Companion mobile app, and go to Routes, and Synchronize to see your new roue added.
    4) power on your Wahoo ELEMNT, go to Route, and Synchronize
    Hope this can help some of you.
    Happy riding!

  • I just tried using Strava as a route planning tool on my PC yesterday I found it worked well for this purpose.

    For turn by turn navigation I’ve been using an app called “BikeGPX” for around two years and I find it does everything I need. It shows a nice graphical representation of your route as well as an elevation profile at the bottom of the screen. It also does a good job of alerting you when you’ve gone off track and on a few occasions when this happened to me I found using the little arrow on the screen to be useful in guiding me back.

    Just save your route to a gpx file upload to the cloud (I use dropbox)

    On your phone access the file from the cloud. open it and then use the export feature on your mobile OS to open it in BikeGPX.

  • I downloaded a bunch of apps. So far the only free app that works for me is Bike GPX

    I also tried

    - Bike Tracker - would show up as an app when I emailed myself GPX files

    - RunGo - only loaded part of a really big track that had been edited a bunch in Garmin Basecamp. I'm guessing it works fine for smaller files or files that were never split up

    Thanks Sebastien!

    Tried Komoot after reading your post. And this app does the work for me, will continue using this until Strava gets their sh*t together and adds the feature.

  • Hmm, disappointing Strava hasn't included this feature yet.
    I tried naviki, komoot, ride with GPS and at the end went back to naviki. All have pros and cons, though naviki had to be payed a little bit for, but at least doesn't have a subscription fee. Naviki maps are clear and can also provide a automatic routes, which are quite good! For now I'm happy using naviki and Strava alongside eachother, but I'm still hoping that Strava will include this option in the future.

  • Good day to everyone!

    This is what Strava came back with after my request for an audio turn-by-turn feauture.
    “You can post your suggestion in our community forums. We use these forums to consolidate and collect feedback from our community so if there is enough interest, it may be something we put on the roadmap.” Given the amount of user feedback over the years on this subject I can only conclude that this answer from Strava is just a fob off.....

    Nevertheless I love Strava for a lot of reasons and will not easily abandon it. The social aspect is a tremendous plus. I seriously consider thou to go back from Premium to the free version for reasons already extensively brought up by other members.

    I recently tested the free apps Osmand and BikeGPX. BikeGPX is pretty much OK but does NOT have voice guidance, which I want so I can put my iPhone to sleep to save the battery and just consult the mapping in incidental situations.  (I have an additional small Sigma computer mounted for the basic data to look at)

    Osmand works real time together with Strava. (Osmand for the spoken navigation and Strava for the trip recording). Osmand’s interface has some room for improvement, but you might get used to it. Once on a pre-installed GPX-route you are in trouble when for whatever reason the navigation got interrupted. Osmand wants you to go back to the starting point of the route in stead of resuming the route from where the interruption took place. May be I did not find out yet how to work around this due to the rather complex and less intuative interface. If someone has a suggestion, I’d welcome it! And - as already said by many, many Strava users - I’m willing to pay - although I’m Dutch 😉 - for an integrated spoken turn-by-turn feature in Strava!

  • I gave up years ago hoping Strava would add voice guidance. I've tried many solutions, but the one I like, using my Android phone, is:

    Use Strava to record my rides. 

    Use RidewithGPS to map new routes (or use Strava and export to RwGPS).

    Use Bike Tracker by PC Ability to access the RwGPS route and get voice guidance.

    I don't need to pay a penny!

  • I use exactly the same strategy - Strava to capture my ride data, RWGPS to create and store routes, and Bike Tracker for navigation.  I've tried alot of various options and this is the tried and true method that I've ended up with.

  • A bit repetitive, but I do the same - ride with Strava, plan with RwGPS, turn by turn with Bike Tracker. Works for me ! And as Kelvin said, it's all for free.

    As backup, I have OSMAnd. I think the OSM (Open Street Maps) are excellent. In an emergency, OSMAnd will generate a route from your location to wherever. Also free.

  • Hi John, why an extra app to create and store routes? Strava is providing these features too and very satisfactory if you ask me. But I have hardly any experience with RidewithGPS....
