When you use cycle.travel on a mobile phone, you’ll find a few things are different to make best use of the limited screen space.
Click ‘Map’ as usual, and you’ll see a bar at the bottom of the screen with three sections: Map, Directions and Routes.
You’ll also see a three-line menu (‘hamburger menu’) at the top right, which is where you can find useful functions such as saving and downloading your route.
You can tap to add your start and end points as usual. If you want to add more points, double-tap on the screen (iPhone) or long-press (Android).
You’ll need to install an app that can open GPX files. There are many, but try:
Then back in cycle.travel, plan your route (and save it) and click “Open in phone app”. The route will be downloaded to your phone. It may open automatically in your app, or be downloaded to the Files area of your phone, from where you can click ‘Open in MapOut’ or something similar.
Not quite yet – but we’re just finalising our iPhone app! Android will follow later.
