Motorcycle Route Builder – BETA version

10th September 2013 by  in Daily Digest, Techie Stuff

We’d like to give you a sneaky preview on something we’ve been working on for quite a while. We recently launched the Beta (test) version of our brand spanking new motorcycle route builder and mapping system which you can check out by clicking the image or link below.

You can use the Route Builder to…

  • Plan a route (from any town, address or GPS point on the map)
  • Add start, end or via points by right-clicking anywhere on the map.
  • Change your route ‘on the fly’ by dragging the line from point to point
  • Save & share routes with others
  • Quickly view points of interest, suggested routes and other layers with a simple on or off toggle

  • Export routes to a Garmin, TomTom or other GPS device
  • Rate & describe routes, add photos and up (or down) vote routes submitted by others
  • Find and add new routes submitted by other users to your route
  • View endorsed ‘biker-friendly’ hotels and B&B’s with ease

But, we need your input…

Before we start shouting about this from the rooftops, we want your input.  We’d really appreciate it if you could give it a try, create a route, save it – export it to your Garmin/Tom Tom if you have one and generally just roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. We’d love to hear what you like (or dislike) about it – what you think works well and anything you think we might be able to fix or improve upon. Many of the features that are already in place are there specifically because our bikers (you guys!) told us what you wanted from a route planner. Your feedback will not only help us iron out any little bugs that may have slipped through the net, but almost certainly also provide us with a whole heap of cool and clever ideas that we could look at building into future releases.

Give us your input & win a trip away

By way of a small thank you for your interest and support in all we’ve been doing at MotoGoLoco so far, we thought we’d lay on a rather special incentive… Everyone who submits feedback about our route  builder will be entered into a draw. A winner (to be selected at random) will win a free nights stay (for two) at a biker-friendly destination of their choice – that’s right – take your pick from ANY of the fantastic hotels and guest-houses that we have listed on MotoGoLoco!).

How to send us your feedback

You can send in your comments by either:

  • Dropping a reply into the comments below this post -or-
  • Sending us an email to hi@motogoloco.com with ‘Maps Feedback’ as the subject / title.

(*Usual MotoGoLoco competition terms and conditions apply, free stays will include accommodation & breakfast, and in some instances evening meals too. Date of stay to be arranged between winner and venue). We’re on the brink of something really special here and are hugely excited about it, so thanks again – we’re really looking forward to hearing your thoughts. James @ MotoGoLoco
