Now the Routes on Your Phone
Bike Switzerland is partnering with the platform RideWithGPS so that your telephone is now your GPS. All of our custom routes, notes, hotels, picnic spots and points of interest will be on your cellphone. Best of all, you’ll never have to look down at it because the RideWithGPS platform uses voice navigation to guide you.
Your questions answered here:
The telephone will use its own internal GPS and cellphone towers to position you on the maps that have been downloaded onto the RideWithGPS application.
This is enough to charge most phones four times over. You’ll just charge-up your external battery in the evening and then recharge your phone once or twice during the day when stopping for lunch or a break.
We’ll also supply you with a European adapter to use to charge your phone and the external battery. Just make sure to bring whatever cable you normally use to charge your cellphone.
Creating the account may be easier from your computer. Afterwards, you’ll download the RideWithGPS application from the Apple or Google Play store. Click on the invitation link and application will open and allow you to download everything that you need.
You can always leave the application or turn off your phone. The application will pick up where you left off.
You can always put the phone in your pocket and listen to the directions with an earphone.
Don’t leave your phone on the bicycle.
Recharge your phone every evening.
