ACA Mobile Route Apps / Re: New phone - lost purchased sections
« on: February 14, 2020, 03:22:35 pm »
I may be the dumbest person on here...  though just found a ‘restore purchases’ button. Life is good again.

Not at all. The question definitely is asked often. Glad you got it sorted out and I hope you enjoy riding the routes!

Thanks. As a certified social media manager and a background in IT, please make your site mobile friendly rather than put expectations on others to find a bandaid approach. It's better for traffic to your site in general, if you care about such a thing.

Thanks for the info on how to use your site.

The theme is now responsive and should perform better for you on a mobile device.

ACA Mobile Route Apps / Re: Changing from North Up to Road Ahead
« on: January 07, 2020, 06:27:05 pm »
You should be able to place two fingers on the map and then move them to rotate the map to your preferred direction.

I'm a little confused about this.  Does this mean that you need to manually change the orientation of the screen when you change direction of travel? 

On the current version you should be able to go to settings and select "Move the map with me" to get it to move along with you after you have set the orientation by spinning the map with two fingers. In an upcoming release, you will have the option to select the top of map to be either "North" or "In the direction of travel".

GPS & Digital Data Discussion / Re: Navigator App vs GPX Data Question
« on: December 16, 2019, 11:19:46 am »
That is correct, the Bicycle Route Navigator App is self-contained. Route data is purchased within the app and may not be exported. The .GPX Data exists for those that want to use a Garmin or similar GPS device. You can also use the GPX data on a number of third party routing and navigation apps available for mobile devices.

The Bicycle Route Navigator App is designed to be easy to use. The GPX Data is available for the user with more advanced needs that have the desire to use the data on GPS units or third party applications of their choosing.

General Discussion / Re: Tire pressure

Recent studies have found that low pressures do not seem to add resistance. This article by Jan Heine is a good read on the subject.

General Discussion / Re: Use for old maps

This was an April Fools item back in 2009 where old maps were used a replacement for Tyvek as a vapor barrier in home construction. https://www.adventurecycling.org/sites/default/assets/resources/200904_Waypoints.pdf

It's not you that's missing something, it's the GPX file and I did purchase it from ACA - it's all the southern tier maps

If you are uploading the ACA GPX files to RideWithGPS as described in these instructions, https://ridewithgps.com/help/working-with-aca-files, you will not have to trace the route, it will get created in RideWithGPS based on the GPX data. Make sure that you are uploading the track file and not the services file to get the route line.

You are correct ermadness, at this point you do have to use the route editor to place markers on the correct streets to force the route to follow the track and not make its own decisions based on the basemap. The number of points needed depends on the area of the route and does require some zooming in and out to make sure that the correct route is being used. The current GPX files do not include the cues, but it may be something we can provide in the future.

Exactly

Also is there a trick to using offline mode? I've deleted and reloaded several times but only get what seems to be a random selection of tiles at different zoom elevations.

If the download completes you should have all the tiles that the route travels through. What route and section are you getting a random set of tiles for? I'll check on my end to see if I can replicate the issue.

1. The paper maps seemed to provide a little more info with the services listing. For example on Lewis & Clark route through Columbus MT it lists City Park Columbus.  This park is actually named Heritage Park and I drove by it yesterday. Nothing suggests its  a campground on in person or anywhere I can find online. With seemingly less info than the paper version is it safe to assume the police and neighbors are ok with tents in their city park?

The paper maps and digital data share the same service information. If the cyclist only camping options have additional information such as contact information or other restrictions it will be listed in the details of the service point.

2. The app allows feedback to be provided regarding services listed. I was hoping to read others feedback about the services. Either nobody is leaving feedback, I cant find it in the app, or its not shared. I'm hoping it's not the third as that would be one of the most useful aspects of the app. If I could see feedback it would help answer questions like above and give immediate updates and current info regarding services.

The app does allow user feedback on service data that goes to the cartography team that updates the route data accordingly. We look to incorporate public feedback directly in the app in the future.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like a great tour of northwest Montana. The Yaak is definitely a fantastic and remote area! Would love to check out the photos but the Flickr link is currently returning a 404 error.
