Ride Like A Local – Anywhere in the World

Unlock the power of the Ride with GPS community through the mobile app. By aggregating millions of publicly-logged rides from our community, the Global Heatmap shows you where the locals ride, highlighting popular cycling routes so you know which way to go when you reach that inevitable fork in the road.  



Turn-by-Turn: Navigation Made Easy

One tap is all you need to get going. Anticipate upcoming turns, intersections, and waypoints using turn-by-turn Voice Navigation in the Ride with GPS mobile app. Keep your ride on track with audible and visual cues to guide the way. Miss a turn? Don’t worry, you’ll receive alerts from the app with Off Course warnings and directional notifications back to your course. We’ll even continue to serve up cues over your phone’s locked screen so you get from Point A to Point B without missing a beat.

No Signal? No Problem! 

Enjoy the freedom to roam beyond the range of network connection using Offline Maps. Because GPS works regardless of your phone’s data connection, you can navigate fully off the grid in airplane mode. Access downloaded routes in the Offline section of your library. Save data, extend your phone’s battery life, and enhance your peace of mind in the backcountry using Offline Maps.




Plan & Share Routes on the Go

The Mobile Route Planner is a powerful tool for creating and modifying routes on the fly. Quickly sketch and share route ideas or edit your existing plans on the go. Or you can simply plug in a destination and let our routing algorithm do the rest. Plan, save, and sync to your GPS devices right from your phone. Whether you’re sketching out a quick line across town or rerouting a multi-day tour, the Mobile Route Planner puts all the power of the Ride with GPS platform in the palm of your hand!

Use the filters to dial in your results by route length, elevation gain, surface type, and even choose between loop, out-and-back, or point-to-point route profiles. 


Spend Less Time Searching with Inspect

Refine your search capability using the Inspect tool — long-press anywhere within the map to find the best routes and rides passing through a precise point. Use Inspect in conjunction with the Global Heatmap to discover the top routes and rides that utilize a specific road, trail, or intersection.
