Pacific Coast Bicycle Route App Description

If you're planning or riding the Pacific Coast, this is a must-have app. The scenic Pacific Coast Route travels from Vancouver, B.C., to Imperial Beach, California. Breathtaking cliffs, redwood forests, lighthouses, beaches, and a rugged coastline makes this a very popular route. Discover the beauty to be found between Canada and Mexico. Purchase route and services data directly from the app. Similar to the physical maps, it has the information you need on the road. Show or hide bicycling services such as campsites, bike shops, lodging, and towns. See current wind speed and direction along the route. Use embedded Google search for even more services. Calculate distance between two points on the route and see the elevation profile. Switch between Google maps and OpenCycleMap for even more detail, and download the map so it works without cell service.

  • Good concept. Needs a ton of work to be tour ready.

    Update: After using this app a couple more days on my tour, I'm going to add a star because the Google search integration on the route map, to find specific places or services, is a neat and useful feature. My criticisms below still stand. App isn't quite ready for primetime. Original review: This app is no substitute for Adventure Cycling's printed maps, which are fabulous, and needs some serious work. My two main gripes: 1. There are no turn by turn direction instructions as you get with the printed maps. I'm currently touring down this route and find those directions to be the best part of Adventure Cycling's printed maps. You won't find them here. 2. When online, this app uses Google maps for the route overlay, but switches to OpenStreetMap (OSM) maps when you select the offline versions. Why? On Google maps, the street names are often extremely difficult, sometimes impossible, to read because the purple route overlay line obscures the text and the font is very small. When using OSM maps, nearly all street names are completely covered by the route line and totally unreadable. Since there are no turn by turn directions, you constantly have to check your phone to see when to make your turn, guessing at the street names because you can't read them. Total pain to use. With the current state of this app, you'd frankly be better off with digital photos of the printed maps stored on your phone in conjunction with a GPS mapping application of your choice.
  • Has potential, but needs a more work

    This isn't ready to replace a bike computer or a GPS navigator. But as an off-the-bike reference to services and terrain, it will eventually be superior to what's shown on my GPS. I like that it shows touring-specific services without unnecessary clutter. The new weather layer is nice; I'd like to see dew point when it's available. It would also be nice to be able to slide the legend in and out while looking at the map. Too many touches are required to see it. The latest version crashes every time you load a route segment.
