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: 

How To Plan In The App:

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.

My planning line is straight (as the crow flies), what do I do?

Planning your ride and the route line is not following the road? You have the polyline tool (little drone looking icon) selected. Make sure to switch that over to the waypoint tool on the right toolbar. Click the waypoint tool, second to last icon, and this should make planning much easier. The polyline tool is used if you are planning a ride that may not have a defined road (like a dry lake bed, or undefined mountain trail).
