Good idea, needs better implementation
This app works great if all you want it to do is track your rides and then give you the details. If you want to follow predefined routes, this is where the app fails pretty badly. There are no prompts to alert you to make a turn. The app follows your progress along the route, but as you reach the edge of the screen, you go off-screen and then you either have to manually scroll the map, or hit the "bull's eye" icon that centers the map on your present location. However, you have to keep hitting that icon because the app is not smart enough keep your location on the screen. Especially if you are riding fast on a road bike, it is a real safety issue to have to take your eyes off the road, activate the screen on the phone, then center the map on your present location. The map also does not rotate to keep your direction of travel facing up. You also can't get cue sheets for defined routes, either from the app or from their web interface. I have provided this input to the publisher and I'm told that some of these suggestions are being considered, but until they get implemented, this app does not really meet my needs due to lack of basic functionality. If the publisher adds these abilities, then this will be an excellent app.

This app is great. I've tried a couple others but this one is definitely a five star app.
