As a Premium subscriber, you can input custom cues while planning or editing routes to alert riders of Points of Interest (POIs) and other features of the route like “start long climb”, “beware of train tracks”, or additional navigation cues such as “make a U-Turn”.
While using the mobile app on iPhone or Android, custom cues will be read using Voice Navigation along with all the other cues.
Warning: Any changes to the route made by dragging the segment near a custom cue will automatically delete the custom cue. We recommend adding the custom cues after you have finalized the route and aren’t going to make any other changes.
- Now that you have the Add Cue tool selected, click on the route where you want the Cue. This will get added to the cue sheet automatically.
In this example I’m alerting riders of the gravel path that leads up to the view point of Rocky Butte.
- Click Save to Finish
As you hover over a step in the cue sheet, you’ll see the cue highlighted on the map. Clicking on a cue will open up a form on the map where you can edit or remove the cue.
Text entered into NOTES will be spoken to you while using navigation on the mobile app.
Be sure to save your changes by clicking SAVE button once you’re done editing.
Exercise caution when using this tool. If you save your route after using CLEAR CUES, you will not be able recover any cues without re-creating the entire route again.
If you don’t want any automatically generated cues, go to the right side panel under OPTIONS and un-check the box for GENERATE CUE SHEET WHILE PLANNING.
Generally we recommend leaving this option enabled so you get all the cues generated for your route to use in the mobile app.
Here’s what your custom cues will look like when printed in the cue sheet PDF.

Demonstrated on an iPhone: You can view the cues on the map after starting navigation. The Android version of the app behaves the same way.
