Ratings and Reviews
One thing I noticed after making a couple trial runs with this app. First thing is it is a little clunky in use. I’m hitting way to many icons to get back to the scene I wanted to be. This could be me still learning the nuisance of the app, I feel it could be more user friendly.
Secondly is the ability to share routes with others. That’s where my title for this review comes from. We all know Harley-Davidson is a culture and a community, being able to share our routes with others on this app would be huge improvement.
As an example, I used the route record tool to record a trip along the backroads of Florida. I have a buddy who can’t always ride when I ride, so it would be nice to be able to text, email, etc the route to him and he be able to download that into his phone to be used through this app.
Great start but needs improvements. I will probably end up using this as a ride planner to find out of state dealers when I do my long out of state runs, then add those locations to the other Route Planning/Navigation App I currently use.

Problems with audio and detours
I’ve been experimenting with the app. I use navigation on my phone and listen to podcasts on my phone simultaneously. Using google maps and Overcast, not a problem. With the Harley app, I noticed two problems. 1) When the navigation voice came on, Overcast paused. But when the navigation voice was over, Overcast remained paused. It should have restarted playing. 2) Purposely deviating from the route due to construction caused the app to give up and close. Or it coincidentally crashed. I want to be able to use this app because of the ability to plan a ride and set waypoints but these two issues make that not practical for me.

Hi PghPhil, thank you for the feedback and insight into the problems you're experiencing. If you have the time, could you please email us at MobileAppFeedback@Harley-Davidson.com with a reference this review and a description of what you're experiencing like you did above? We're working hard to improve navigation features in the app, so please reach out!
One critical problems keeps it from perfect.
If the app crashes, closes, phone is rebooted, or if anything in anyway causes you to have to close and reopen this app. The ride will not continue where you are. It forces you to navigate back to the start of the ride.
This is a critical failure knowing how glitchy phones and apps can be.
My Garmin GPS, if I load a ride and something happens where the GPS turns off etc. the ride will always continue where I left off or I am currently at.
I used the app yesterday simultaneously with my GPS. We stopped for lunch and when we came outside. The Harley app kept saying (no GPS signal) even through my phone had GPS and the other map apps worked. It forced me again to restart the Harley App and as it’s done previously, it was forcing me to go backwards 80 miles into my ride rather than just continuing the ride I already was involved in.
If that one issue is fixed, this would be a 5 star app. But this will leave you stranded if you have a long planned ride and the phone or app closes.
Please fix this one issue. Till then I have to keep using my garmin GPS.
So close but so far.
