Very much so. RWGPS is the best I've found so far, and I've tried a few. Different colors, custom POI. It has a great feature set.Is their route builder better than Strava’s?
I think RWGPS can be a bit quirky on out and back routes, where it sometimes wants to overshoot until the next place where you can turn around in a vehicle (or an upcoming dead end), even if your mode is set to "walking" where this makes no sense at all.On the ability to fine-tune routes: Note the out-and-back to the top of Tossaka pass and back down again, and specifically the stretch beyond the top, from 57.3 km to 58.0 km. Adding that little stretch was a (human) error, unnoticed at the time. (If it had been noticed, the "undo" button would have fixed it.) Since the superfluous stretch is less than a kilometre it really doesn't matter, but somehow it irritates me. Last night I spent twenty minutes trying but failing to zap it.
I messed around with it a bit on their website and didn't really know what I was doing. I get the feeling they still need a bigger user base in Japan as it relies on the users to populate the maps with things to see and do. Btw, I wonder when the cycling icon on Google Maps Japan will stop being just a dead link. I'm keen to try that once they decide to turn it on.Maybe that's why workshops are needed.
I think that one depends a lot on underlying map data, which Google licenses from a third party for Japan.Btw, I wonder when the cycling icon on Google Maps Japan will stop being just a dead link. I'm keen to try that once they decide to turn it on.
