Now that the telephone apps are up and running, could an Apple watch app (other smart watches are available) be on the cards? Sorry for giving you more work Richard!

I wouldn’t rule it out but there’s a long list of other things higher up the list, I’m afraid! But one day it would be nice to have wrist-mounted directions, certainly.

Derek, not being familiar with smartwatches, I'd be interested in how you would plan to use this. Could you elaborate, please?

I missed a couple of turnings while out cycling in the rain. I had my telephone covered so the voice was not clear and the screen was not very visible, a vibration on my wrist would have been a good indication to turn. Just a nicety, not an essential. continues to be my planner and cycle navigator of choice. I hope that this is sufficiently clear. Happy riding.

Thanks, Derek. I hadn't thought of that at all.
