ACA Mobile Route Apps / Distance between two points not working....
« on: December 05, 2020, 09:15:09 am »
I've had this problem on the Arkansas High Country Route Northern Section since the new version of the app was released several months ago. 

For instance, on that route, if you try to calculate the distance between Fayetteville and Seligman in a clockwise direction, the app will incorrectly show you the direction going in a counter clockwise direction.  The opposite occurs if you try to go counterclockwise.  In other places on the map, however, the functionality seems to work.  Makes the functionality pretty useless. 

As far as I can tell, the problem seems to more prevalent when there are intersecting loop routes in the map set loaded. 

Any ideas?

Does anyone know why the alternate route just south of Swan Lake exists?  I have purchased the app based maps, they don't really indicate why a particular alternate route exists.  I've been able to figure out most of the others, but this one is elusive.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks guys....Bikeflights is definitely the cheapest option if we do have to ship the bags.  As for boxing, the tandem draws a huge amount of attention when it's boxed as a tandem, and if we break it into two boxes, we end up with double the charges.  Based on past experiences with it, we've come out way ahead using it's suitcases where it travels as normal checked luggage, but those past experiences have involved a flight in and out of the same location and a hotel that would store them for us because we had two sets of reservations confirmed before I asked the question.

I've thought about making a reservation with a hotel knowing that it would have to change before calling to see if that would sway their minds in our favor. 

I hadn't considered the warm showers option....that's probably worth pursuing.

My wife and I are riding the western half of the Trans-AM this summer on our coupled tandem.  We will be flying into Pueblo, and finishing in Portland, and the one logistic problem I'm having trouble getting a handle on is what to do with our bike bags (other than shipping them home and having them shipped to us in Portland when we finish). 

Ideally, I would like to ship them directly to Portland so they will be waiting for us there so we can check the bike as luggage on the flight home versus boxing and shipping it.  Unfortunately, the bike hostels and cycling friendly hotels I've contacted cannot accommodate holding our bags for our arrival. 

I'm wondering if someone out there has found a solution to this in the Portland area and could pass that information along?

Worst case, we could either double ship the travel cases or have the tandem boxed and shipped home, but both of those are a bit more expensive than being able to fly with it as standard luggage.

Thanks in advance, and I'm hoping we can meet on the road!

Although the OP has already completed his ride, I thought it might be worthwhile to add a footnote:

Mondays and Tuesdays (some places along the trail) are days that many of the services are closed.  You can't always count on a particular restaurant or café being open on those days, so plan accordingly and use caution.
