Following a route (Navigation)

I created a route on the website and not sure if this feature is in the works to be done, but it would be cool when out and about to select a route on the iPhone and have that either navigate me (inside the MyRoute-App) or open Apple or google maps, or as I have TomTom installed on the phone to navigate with that.


I do not mean using the connector to install a route on a navigation device, as I do not own any devices apart from TomTom on my iPhone, and the connector will not connect to that on OS X.


This is a question I am being asked a lot by my friends.


As a work around I did use the already designed route and track around that, however a few things had to be done and was noticed, 

1, the phone lock screen to be disabled

2, the map did not rotate so it was hard to know which way to turn as it was upside down.

3, It created a new track of the route that was designed

The connection with Sygic (iOS/android) and Navigon (iOS is ready!

Other apps do not support the import of waypoints.

See a little instruction: https://youtu.be/mHk86D6MQAw?list=PLoRUfcAhS6_2WVEm-9jKbPxLKFxisEolu


Hi Paul, you can't import routes into MyRouteApp only export, but you as a Gold member you can use the TomTom map on the MyRouteApp in the browser to plan a route that, from the iPhone myRouteApp, select that route and send it to Sygic or Navigon for navigation, I use it all the time.

You can upload routes in MyRoute-app through Routelab > Routeupload

Any news in getting the app to work with a free program like Waze ??

I bought the Gold version maybe a year ago and I found out I never used since I have a  a Navigator V ( made by Garmin for BMW ) and I can create a route on tyretotravel and send them oto Garmin - I would have bought the Navigon app and use it on the iphone but in my area the app has only 2 out of 5 star so I stick with using tyretotravel and Garmin.

Any route made in MyRoute-app can also be transfered to your Garmin without effort Paolo :)

And we plan to have a free mobile navigation app released for MRA users in the coming months.

I try to use the connection between MyRoute-app and Sygic on my iPhone. It works fine if my route starts where I'm currently.

But I wanted to prepare my route in advance for a trip in the USA. So what I do in MyRoute-app on the iPhone: select the route, then click on the navigation symbol, select Sygic. Sygic open and says that some maps are missing. When I look the details I see that all my waypoints are correctly imported in Sygic but the start is my current position (which is really not near my planned route, therefore some maps are missing, see attached screenshot).

The waypoint added at the start is a point which can't be deleted so I'm not able to import my routes. It even sometimes crash Sygic.

Can I use MyRoute-app with Sygic to import planned trips which are not near my actual position?

There is a way to export a route to Google Maps app on your smartphone, but you also have to use the pc TYRE program as well and it also only works if you have less than 10 route points (start, 8 intermediate and end).

1. Save the route from My Route App locally to your PC as any format e.g. .gpx.
2. Now open this file in TYRE on your pc.
3. On the menu go and select View....., Show Route (Google Maps)........ This opens in your browser.
4. If you have set up your chrome browser to log on to your Google account you get the option below the 10 max route points to "send this to your phone" click this.
5. Then on your phone open the route in Google maps and go ride 

is there a way to navigate a route on my android smartphone.
