Rever, makers of a motorcycle-based navigation app, is announcing that it has released a “Huge App Update.” According to the company, they are hard at work implementing new features that its users have asked for and have added some “big refinements” to existing capabilities.
Rever says that the updated app has a new and refreshed look with lighter and easier to read menus. The app now is Apple CarPlay® compatible and has new POI (points of interest) layers for gas stations, restaurants, and lodging.
The new release has new weather layers that now include lightning and wind on its radar display. It also provides weather alerts.
Key updates and improvements include:
- A “brand new” in-app route planner for easier use. Planning routes can be a hassle, so it will be great to try out the new planner and get a feel for how intuitive it is.
- A significantly improved the turn by turn navigation logic. Once again, we’ll have to ride with it to see how well it works.
- Improved offline maps. For those of us that ride outside of cell coverage, offline maps are a treat, particularly if you plan your route and don’t know whether you will have coverage for the duration of your journey.
- New Butler Maps content has been added. The new update includes Butler Map content for New Brunswick, Quebec, and Maine. Butler maps are excellent, mainly if you use them in conjunction with Backcountry Discovery Routes. This is one feature that could be indispensable.
We’re going to review the latest Rever update, and we’ll let you know what we think in the not too distant future.
