Can confirm that Android 13 and BRouter work just fine (Samsung S20). The BRouter files reside in Android>media>btools.routingapp. On that note, for fast-vs-curvy routing - I am tempted to now have a look at a more custom BRouter profile to avoid the highways/tolls etc and favour the smaller roads. The config file is very "readable" and should be easy to define a more "fun" route.Maps: My personal preference is OpenAndroMaps (or old Kurviger ones) because the Mapsforge ones do not produce enough detail at similar zoom, placenames are too slow to appear without zooming-in quite far (this is not a theme issue). BRouter works just fine for me as Graphhopper offline refuses to route me over a cattle-grid(!).Where Cruiser lacks right now is the online/cloud aspect - it currently deals in flat files (like GPX) and they load/save just fine: I plan in BaseCamp and load the GPX into Cruiser with all my stops marked and I'm ready to ride. Diverting the route to other roads or stops is really easy and seems to place them in the right order when tapping a place on the map. It also lacks some offline search functions (without telling it explicitly what you want to search for) from other apps where you press the magnifying glass button and start typing a road/business.It really depends on what you want from the app and how you use it in your riding. It's not Calimoto, CoPilot or Waze, but then it's not GoogleMaps either. If you want to get from A to B with good traffic info, use Google. If you want to ride for 2-hours in the twisties heading west, use Calimoto. I like Cruiser (having migrated from CoPilot) as it handles multi-stop routes/touring, shows GPX bookmarks/favorites on the map and allows a new route to be created whilst on the bike in a layby :)
I should probably clarify that my earlier comments were aimed at the new user "angel" rather than the dev team.For the record, if Cruiser goes down that "cloud" route and removes the GPX loading via file manager, then I'm out :) The concept of drawing a route on your PC, via a browser, signed into somebody else's server and then having your latest content appear on the phone as soon as you open the app is certainly useful, but not for me. The T&Cs of one particular online/app solution are quite eye-opening!That said, the default file system for apps that allow you to drop files into their folders isn't the most user-friendly. I'm sure that most users do not want to edit a file, remove a line, change a value or navigate to a folder 8 levels deep only to find they can't overwrite the file because Android. An import/open dialogue for things like that is always nice. Persuading new users to alter their workflow (especially if they're coming from Calimoto) may be tricky with the flat-file concept or setting-up a Dropbox - I'm happy to work with offline files because it means I can plan, route, copy etc so long as I have battery % in the device. Laptop in a cafe + USB cable = done. Heck, I think my laptop even has Bluetooth built-in ;)Telling a user that they need to load their route into a converter app (ITNConv is brilliant, BTW), export it to FileType XYZ, copy it to \Android\data\stuff\more-stuff\folder143843 and then rename it to my-route-gpx probably isn't going to win them over.
