How Do I Plan A Ride?

With REVER, one of the best features is being able to create a custom route in the website or the app and get route line or turn-by-turn navigation directly in the app.

How To Plan On Website: 

  1. From the Map Screen select Create Route (Left Panel)
  2. Choose your route building engine
  3. Select your starting point and place waypoints along your intended route.
  4. Click Save when your route is complete and add a Ride Date. (Date determines sorting on your Planned Rides)
  • Pro Tip - Zoom in as close as you can when placing waypoints and place them directly in the lane of travel, avoiding highway on/off-ramps and interchanges.

How To Plan In The App:

  1. From the Map Tab select the Create Ride icon (curvy road icon upper right)
  2. Choose your route building engine
  3. Starting location will default to your current location. (Change this by selecting the Current Location box)
  4. Drag the map to place your next waypoint or type in a location.
  5. Click Start when your route is complete and choose Follow Route Line or Turn-by-turn Navigation.
  6. Or you can choose Save For Later.

Straight Line While Tracking?

If you are on an Android, chances are you have some silly optimization settings that nuke your phone's GPS which will stop your tracking. So let's get you sorted so you can track your rides appropriately.


1. Power Savings Mode: Disabled

2. Battery Settings: Change Optimized to Performance/High Performance

3. App Permissions Set to Always rather than While Using the app.

Some Other Tracking Tips:

Close Apps You’re Not Using: If you have several apps running in the background, the operating system will choose which apps are using the most resources. In an attempt to optimize your battery, the operating system will ‘kill’ apps that are consuming too much battery. (Do not swipe out of REVER, it will end your tracked ride).

Camera Use: We encourage you to take photos along the way! If you choose to use the camera, close out of the camera app after you snap your picture. As cameras continue to improve, they also use more battery and processing power to function, so swipe out of the camera app to make sure REVER does not get booted by the operating system.
