Had a couple of questions today regarding route software and loading the route onto Garmin or Wahoo.
I have been using RidewithGPS (https://ridewithgps.com) as my route planning tool. I find this far more effective than the one Strava provides.
RidewithGPS is loaded up with all the cycling paths and it seems be pretty up to date. The route from today (2/11/21) anniversary/yarra/mullummullum/gardiners creek was created in RidewithGPS with only about 8-10 way points (ie map clicks), the route engine, set to ‘cycling’, found the best cycling paths, shortest time time on roads.
I initially accessed the RidewithGPS browser version as a freebie. Under free access you can plan a route but not edit it. After saving the route on the freebie web version you can then SHARE the route to a device; garmin or wahoo.
This forces you to nominate and provide access to your wahoo or garmin app which in turn downloads it to the wahoo or garmin device.
On the Wahoo you can then bring up the route via the Route PAGE and select it to provide turn by turn navigation.
If you want to edit route in RidewithGPS you need a subscription which also give you access to the RidewithGPS app on the phone which also has all the bike paths.
I posted today’s (2/11/21) route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37898036. If you open the link on the phone it most likely will try and open the app. If you open the link on a PC/MAC browser it should take you the RidewithGPS website where you can see the route, km markers, elevation etc. On that screen you’ll also see a big orange button saying ‘SEND TO DEVICE’. Clicking that will give you the option to choose: iPhone, Android, GarminEdge, Wahoo. Select your device then follow the prompts.
Hope this helps. A pretty good route tool. I used extensively during lockdown to create more 5/10/15km limit rides, plus of course the trail ride from today.
