The Bike Route Planner is a tool to assist route planning and navigation, and many other tasks related to cycling and walking. Routes can be shared with others, and are then available at www.bikerouteplanner.net.

Routes can also be recorded, based on GPS readings. Tracks can be adjusted to the ground altitude.

Possible routes are shown on top of Google maps, with colors representing different inclinations. This is of vital importance to bikers and hikers, that frequently prefer to avoid steep slopes. The route's highest and lowest points are also depicted graphically, through 'peak' and 'valley' icons.

Routes can be analyzed on the map, by their coloring, or through their summary and details, accessible from the menu. They can also be saved on the phone's storage, for future reference. An altitude profile graph is available, to better visualize the elevations along the route.

All data concerning routes and the actual user's position is only used internally to the application, and is not shared in any way. See full details here: http://www.bikerouteplanner.net/privacy.html

Info about bike routes is available for Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK and the US. Other countries' users can plan routes based on normal roads.

The application is configurable. It may use metric or imperial distance units. It can be set to always show your location, and also to keep the map centered on it. Some data about you can be entered, to support estimation of calorie consumption.

Although BikeRoutePlanner is not directed to car drivers, it is also possible to search routes for automobiles.

Several new features will be added shortly. Further down the development road-map is the implementation of several other features, that will make Bike Route Planner a complete companion for your cycling and hiking activities.

BikeRoutePlanner was developed by a frequent bike commuter, that felt that some navigation and route planning needs were yet to be fulfilled.

Altitudes may seem irregular due to GPS's altitude inaccuracy: this can be solved by selecting 'Simplify and adjust to ground', in the 'Route' menu.

Avoid recording very long routes, with many GPS readings, as this can exhaust the phone's memory!

    App looks promising but has a long way to go to be useful. This is a beta version really. It needs: -Way more available waypoints. About 10 is current max. I want to pre-plan a ride along a specific path not necessarily the most direct. That requires lots of waypoints. Tried to use this for a simple SF ride: Embarcadero BART - Best Buy - Mojo Bike Café - Legion of Honor - 24th/Mission BART. I qu

    Very helpful to plan a route that can be followed later on with Oruxmaps. Unfortunately the elevation gain is completely wrong, always much bigger. Please fix it. It would be great to have other map providers more than google map.
