In Google Maps (on Android mobile) - three dots - Add route to Home Screen? I know it's not the PC but may be something similar you could save on the PC which might appear on the mobile version.Is there a way to import a saved route in Google maps to Tripper? I'm planning a route on my PC with a big screen and I don't really want to do all of the work again in the Tripper app. Can anyone help?
I agree but the latest version of Tripper seems to be a lot more user friendly. Problem for me is reading the phone in daylight. Phone app (i.e. google maps) will, I think, run at the same time as tripper so you effectively have both with tripper for bright sunlight.I’ll be honest. Because of the ease of use and other rider friendly features, I’d suggest getting a Ram Mount and use either Waze or Google Maps. Much more intuitive and flexible. Mine is mounted on the right so now I never see the tripper. It’s a novel gadget but it still requires a cell phone so better to just use the cell phone. I just finished a 50+ mile test ride and it was rock solid secure.
I'm very disappointed with Tripper. Great idea but badly executed. Apart from the blinding display the software is very limited. Trying to plan anything other than a very simple route is painful. The software developers need to take a look at Beeline Moto. Planning multi waypoint routes, storing locations and routes is so easy with Beeline. It works well. However I prefer a map. The best iPhone app for navigation that I have used for sometime now is Scenic. It's a brilliant app so much better than any of the others and I have tried most of them. Planning complex routes, storing routes and locations, importing and exporting routes, offline maps, customising the interface, good folder structure and a great forum for help.
If any Tripper software developers read this then please allow GPX file import. At least then a route can be planned and stored as a GPX file using alternative software and then imported into Tripper when required. It would make the Tripper device more useful. I'm not holding my breath.
I'm on android. I will try beeline.IanS I'm glad it works for you. Maybe I'm being a little too harsh. Yes it works but it could be so much better. Waypoint selection is clumsy. Humour me download Beeline app it's free and see how they do it. Also based on Goggle. The biggest problem both have is that the maps are not downloadable. You need internet or data to plan. Not much good in the wilderness. With Tripper you can only plan routes from your current location. So you cannot plan a return route. I have found a way to store routes but I have not been able to import routes. If you find a way do share. What platform are you on Android or IOS ? No need for paper maps I use Scenic app.
Personally I would use google maps on your mobileI have a classic 350 and have pondered fitting tripper to it ? is it worth it or am I better off just using an app on my phone "samsung" with a fastening on the handlebars ??I would be grateful for any advice, thanks
You can always run maps and Tripper together. Best of both worldsThat was the conclusion I was slowly coming to, seems to be the most straight forward, thanks.
