A new GPS navigation iPhone app called CycleStreets was launched last week. The new iPhone app is free and turns your iPhone into a cyclist’s version of a Garmin GPS navigation system. The new CycleStreets iPhone app is already close to the top of the charts for GPS navigation apps. The app shows the best bike-friendly routes to get from here to there, and displays a map for you to check during your journey. It not only keeps you on bike paths, but also shows you short-cuts that can trim time off your ride.
According to the press release, the app from Bike Hub uses GPS system satellite navigation style routing that has been engineered specifically for cyclists. It keeps you on bike-safe paths and streets, and arranges your route to minimize up-hill cycling. You can even pick if you want the quietest route, the quickest, or a balanced route.
