    I stumbled across the Rever app and site again, and I remember seeing this years ago but I never looked into it. Seems great in concept, and the features seem great for building routes and uploading them to my Garmin (if this feature actually works well).

    Anyone use this and really like it? Or is it gimmicky and glitchy?

    I haven't been able to figure it out other than tracking and posting my rides

    furkot, gpsies, harleyrideplanner, lots more resoureces online for planning a ride.

    the rever app was promising at first, but i realized they were gathering your/my gpx files to build their resume, and resell them as 'pro' level services. that's an annoyance for me. if you come out with a new and innovative product, great ! just don't resell the customer base tracks as something wild and new.

    I've used Rever in the past, mainly for the paid access to see the red/yellow/orange routes. Routing is fairly easy. I have two complaints: It's difficult to manage a large number of routes. I've not had much luck uploading to Garmin either, mainly because Basecamp is clunky too and uses a different format for routes than most other navigational tools.

    This past summer I used butler maps (the physical kind) with google maps on my smartphone. Much simpler, much easier.
