Turn-by-turn GPS navigation when riding your bike, with spoken instructions to keep you eyes on the traffic. You will never again need to stop and look at your phone when uncertain if you're on track.
Interface is clean and simple. You choose where you want to go by typing the address and the route will be shown on the map. You then put away your phone, insert headphones and hop on your bike, as all directions will be given in audio. You can listen to music while using Co-Rider but this will make you less aware of traffic and we recommend only doing this at a low volume setting.
What lies ahead
- recording speed and elevation during ride
- route calculation without Internet connection
- the ability to report bad routes for review
Routes are specifically tailored to bikes, using bicycle paths where available and avoiding roads unsuitable for bikes. They are generated using OpenStreetMap data, and the app will only be useful in areas where OpenStreetMap coverage is good. You can try out some routes with our free app Bike Planner in the area where you plan on using Co-Rider to get a sense of the route quality. You will not be able to get a refund because of spotty OpenStreetMap coverage.
Plays well with others
Co-Rider can help you navigate routes created by other programs by importing GPX, TCX or KML files. The routes Co-Rider makes can be exported as GPX files or printed. And while Co-Rider is helping you reach your goal in a geographical sense, you can also run a sports-tracker app to reach your fitness goals.
