DESIGN YOUR DESTINATION WITH LEZYNE NAVIGATION

Posted on Posted in News, Videos

Ever wanted to know the best way to get somewhere via bike, but are stuck with car directions? Do you find yourself constantly reaching for your phone for navigation? With the Year 10 GPS collection, there’s a new option for directions. Design your destination with Lezyne Navigation: whether you need to get to the grocery store, find the quickest route to a new climb, or find your way home after an all-day adventure, our GPS devices will take you there, turn-by-turn. The Year 10 GPS collection goes above and beyond the standard of cycling navigation technology with three different navigation options.

 

 

 

1) Search and go

Our search and go feature allows you to simply type your desired destination (example: tacos) into our Ally app and then choose the correct destination and route option. From there, all you need to do is hit “GO” and turn-by-turn directions with distances will seamlessly display on your GPS. No reaching for your phone, no needing to ride with headphones.

 

2) Tap and go

The second way to reach your destination with Lezyne navigation is through our tap and go feature. Simply pull up the map, tap where you want to go and let your GPS be your guide.

 

3) Build or import routes on our GPS Root website

JUST RELEASED! The final design your destination option comes through our GPS Root website. If you are looking to go on a specific ride or follow a certain route, simply build one in our custom route building page. Or, simply grab an existing .tcx or .gpx file and import it into our GPS Root website. Once built or imported, save your new route online and it will automatically sync with the Ally app. From there, just sync the ride with your GPS and head out for a ride!

    1. Hi Matthew, we are working to fine tune some last minute touches on the navigation features this week. They should be visible on the website next week.

  1. Hi Lezyne, back in September it was going to be a couple of weeks… please don’t let us Lezyne supporters down again! Route making and GPX importing, please!

    1. When initially starting your directions, you do need to be paired with the phone. Once the direction are sent to the phone, as long as you stay on-route, you won’t need a phone connection again. If you go off-route, the phone will need to connect briefly to re-route.

  2. I only bought the enhanced super GPS for its ability to give accurate directions. Initial Directions are sent from my phone to my enhanced super GPS , but it never gives you any further instructions. Its just stuck on the same text instruction regardless of what direction you take. Very frustrating when I am following instructions to the letter. Also tried building directions on the GPS root site but there is no intuitive way/ instructions on how to get it to my Enhanced super GPS.

      1. Thanks for detail, I understand the concepts and have made multipal tests. Conclusion is the device does not spit out very user friendly navigation when setting it from the phone/ gps ally 2 app unless you are content with riding your carbon racer down a track or cycle path. NB I have the latest firmware 3rd Jan 2017.

  3. @Mike: Lezyne only offers a “bike friendly route” not a carbon frame friendly route 🙂 its a difference.

  4. I’ve more or less got the TBT directions working OK. I prefer to use other sites to create loop courses anyway so as long as the tcx upload works I’m happy. One thing that would be good to see on the display is a REALLY BIG direction arrow and very concise text as I can’t read the long instructions and control the bike at the same time! Another MUST is to have a BEEP and for the backlight come on and stay on for the duration of the instruction – and a bit beyond – as it’s impossible to navigate in poor light / the dark… can this be implemented?

    1. Hi Andy, thanks for your feedback! As for the backlight, scroll to Auto -> Backlight and turn it to “Off”. Once you’re back on the home screen, click the “Enter” button and that will turn on the backlight and keep it on.

  5. Hi there guys ,how do I build a route that gets me from my start point and finishing back at my start point I.e a round trip or loop ,many thanks Davie

      1. When I’ve imported routes built in Strava, I get breadcrumb mapping letting me know if I’ve missed a turn, but not turn-by-turn directions (i.e. TURN LEFT ON ABC STREET). Is this a feature that is going to be implemented?

        1. Hi Shane,
          Yes, we are currently working hard to finalize all the sweet details to make the turn by turn directions user experience a great one! It’s just around the corner, stay tuned!

          Did you upload GPX or TPX? From what I understand, GPX doesn’t contain data for turn by turn and should be used only when the device has a base map. Try TPX if you haven’t yet. Just got my Super GPS, hope it works well. Not impressed with the desktop app, it’s pretty useless. Doesn’t even let you add a waypoint when you build a route. Other than that, the device and iOS app seem very solid.

          1. Full route building including waypoints is coming very soon for the desktop version. Hang tight 🙂

    1. You can currently upload and follow a saved GPX file. As for building off of a GPS file, we are finalizing all the juicy details and are very close to release!

  6. Is there a possibilty for sending a gpx file (for navigation) to my super gps, with bluetooth, without the ally app?

    1. Hi Sander, unfortunately no. The GPX file must be uploaded to GPS Root, then the app optimizes it for your Year 10 GPS device.

  7. Does GPS route (workout) is saved during GPS navigation? I would like to use TBT Navigation and still have my training recorded.

    1. As long as you press “start” or record at the beginning of the ride the metrics will be recorded as normal even during TBT navigation.

  8. Can you recommend any other activity tracking sites? When i import tcx files from Strava, GPSies or RideWithGPS, no turn by turn navigation is working? On the upload route page you advice always export the file with zero advanced notify distance for padding of directions and cues. Somehow this is not working?

    1. Not all TCX files contain turn by turn navigation data. The file must contain turn by turn for it to upload the directions. If not the ride is just a line. You would have to re-create the route with directions then upload.

    1. No. Once you’ve loaded it onto your device, you are good to go! If you go off course and need to find your way back, however, you’ll need your phone with you to re-route.

  9. Hello! When you are using turn by turn navigation but while you are off-road there is one curve shown on the screen that you are following and the map is always facing north. Is it possible to make the map orientate by the way you are facing physically or at least switch that little cross to an arrow so that you know weather you are going backwards or not?

    1. Thank you for your feedback. We are working on a solution to changing the orientation. Keep and eye out for future updates.

  10. When following a breadcrumb trail on the device, is there a way to zoom in? On a long route, or a route with many twists/turns, the default zoom doesn’t have enough detail to follow.

    1. There are two breadcrumb screens when following a route. One is the whole route and the other is a zoomed-in screen. The screens can be navigated through with the “Back” and “Menu” buttons.
