Strava does do it, and has some useful features to assist. It is lacking in plenty of areas but heat maps are genuinely useful and result in generally reliable routes.Strava isn’t a route planning app as such rather it records your rides.
If you are looking for a route planner Komoot is worth a look.
works ofr me but as you say i use a garmin , not starting the whole which head unit is better debateStrava does do it, and has some useful features to assist. It is lacking in plenty of areas but heat maps are genuinely useful and result in generally reliable routes.
Still not worth my money (I use Ride With GPS who have just introduced something that is similar, but not as good).
For me, the main thing that stops Strava being a great route planner is that you need an external head unit for turn by turn navigation and cues. On mobile it’s just a track on screen to follow which means you need to look far too frequently!
I find Strava is excellent for storing and reviewing my rides. It also lets me see what club mates have been up to and grab the routes if I like them.How good is strava and do you think it is worth the money? What has your experience been like using strava? Do they take you through good roads and do they use the most direct and fast route?
I'd respectfully disagree. I can't see how the navigation can be better with a tcx file?For more modern head units tcx files give better navigation
