Naviki easily records your own trips and synchronises them with www.naviki.org. The result is an impressive personal collection of routes!

Could and should be better

The Good: This is a one off payment app with options to further enhance the experience with some in app purchases. As such it seemed a good value alternative to the subscription based route finding and navigation apps that seem to dominate the marketplace.

You can plan routes and some of the loop routes it creates are ok, though rarely brilliant. It does actively try to route you down less busy roads, though I suspect it simply chooses B roads as I doubt it uses up to date traffic data.

It also has the option to import .kmz and .gpx routes via the website, which appears a big bonus, until you try to use them, about which, more below.

The Bad: The navigation is near impossible to understand, particularly on approach to roundabouts. On my first ride I approached a 7 way roundabout. Naviki told me to “turn half-left on street”. I took the first road.
“You have left the route. Naviki has recalculated your route. Please turn back. Turn half-left on route.”
I tried the next road.
“You have left the route. Naviki has recalculated your route. Please turn back.”
This happened on every road except the last. So “half-left” (which, by the way Naviki, is not a thing) turned out in this case, to mean “right”.

Another common error is being told “continue on route”, only to be told a short while later, “You have left the route. Naviki has recalculated your route. Please turn back.” After retracing your route and consulting the map, you will realise that you should have made a turn that the app doesn’t recognise as a different road.

It’s also worth noting that the option to have Naviki ‘recalculate’ your route has never, at least in my experience, resulted in anything other than an instruction to “please turn back”.

Getting back to that file upload option I mentioned. If you log into your account via the website you can indeed upload route information from .gpx and .kmz files. Unfortunately, before you can use these routes, Naviki will insist on creating its own, recalculated version. Initially I thought that this wouldn’t be a problem, surely it would find the same roads and any minor differences would be barely noticeable. Unfortunately, though this occasionally works, more often than not the resultant route is just a hot mess. I uploaded a popular 54 mike loop route through The Peak District recently. By the time Naviki recalculated it, the distance was 136.5 miles and the map looked like a toddler had attacked it.

Finally, while it is nice that it has trip recording functions, it simply doesn’t have the range of options that apps like Strava or MapMyRide do, which means you will inevitably end up using one those apps too, prompting a very fast drain on your phones battery.

In conclusion, this could be a good app but it falls short on almost every count. It is feature rich, reasonably priced and, with only one or two exceptions, fairly user friendly as an interface. It’s just that none of the features quite work properly. Navigation is confusing and frequently wrong, recalculation is non-existent, route upload is pointless and ride recording is basic. Desperately needs improvement.

Seems good, more testing needed

Thanks for the feedback stop record now works, very impressed with your customer service, easy when you know how. I consider myself a bit of an IT expert, but do not think the stop button is very intuitive. Some basic instructions would help.

Will continue testing.

Developer Response ,

Dear John,
you can easily use the 'Stop' button by pushing the arrow from the left to the right ;-). Would you mind adjusting your rating if this works for you?
Bicycle friendly regards,
Anna
