Description

Sunriver, Oregon outdoor activity playground in summer and in winter. Renowned for beautiful blue skies, great weather, traffic circles, and 30+ miles of bike paths. For those who venture out onto those paths, the questions quickly become: where am I? and how do I get to the pool/lodge/store/coffee shop?

Circle 8 for iPhone answers these questions by providing you with a detailed map (standard or satellite) of the Sunriver area including attractions, bike paths, and your current location. Search for your destination by name, peruse the endless array of bike paths, find your current location inside (or outside) Sunriver, and plan your ride or walk. You can even email Circle 8 support directly from the app with questions or feedback.

SHARC CONSTRUCTION UPDATE 31-MAR-2011: The path segment from 2B to 2D is out of service due to construction. It will be removed from the app in a maintenance update very shortly.

I have to say that the satellite map of Sunriver is really cool (even for us locals) because it gives you a real world view of what is where. Like Lake Penhollow how many times have you driven past it on Cottonwood and didn't realize what it actually looked like from the sky?

And how about those traffic circles? I think it's cool to turn off everything except the circles so I can show people exactly where Circle 8 was supposed to be!

Note that the bike paths displayed in the app were created using GPS traces. Consequently, they should not be expected to be as accurate as properly surveyed maps. But they'll certainly do the job for finding your way around Sunriver.

Note also that MANY of these bike paths are missing from Google's base map of Sunriver. So, if you want 'em all, you need Circle 8!

Since we are unable to respond to user reviews, let me discuss a few finer points about the Circle 8 app:

* The app does not provide routing on bike paths or on streets. You cannot use Circle 8 to get turn-by-turn directions from one location to another. The built-in Maps app on iOS is excellent for street directions, and routing on the bike paths is being considered for a future version of Circle 8.

* The Google base map for Sunriver is missing BIKE PATHS. There is no claim in any advertising for Circle 8 that the base map is missing STREETS. The built-in iOS Maps app does not have the entire suite of BIKE PATHS in Sunriver, nor does it highlight them as Circle 8 does.

* Circle 8 does not allow you to search by address because the geocoded address data in the Sunriver is not reliable enough at this time.

* You can contact support if you have questions either from the link on the Circle 8 page in the App Store or directly from the app.

SORRY ABOUT THE APP STORE ICON! For some reason, the App Store icon for Circle 8 went all 1999 on me after the update to version 1.1. The app icons on the device, however, are fine. I'm working with Apple as we speak to find the most expedient way to restore the App Store Circle 8 icon to its rightful high-resolution glory.

Well built, complementary and useful app

:
App is well built. Snappy, straightforward and helpful with basic A-B guidance to specific areas. Not a replacement for gps but a complement that helps you quickly identify ad gauge where you need or want to go.

5/5 stars

Circles around Sunriver

:
Finally what you need to navigate the trails around Sunriver. After emailing with the developer of this app (who is a local!), I found out that he manually traced the bike trails with his GPS! Detailed maps of the trails are certainly something you can not get on Google Maps. This information becomes very urgent when you suddenly find you need it. For instance, when you riding your bike through the woods and need to get back to to lodge.

I find it amazing how much of a difference that having a local, who knows the area first hand, create and annotate the apps can make. At first it may seem a little superficial, but the subtle details really make a difference when you are out on the trail.

If you are going to navigate the trails of Sunriver, you need this app. Well worth the price of a small Latte. Or a Late, whatever that is.

5/5 stars

Nothing like it.

:
This is a great map of the bike paths of Sunriver, Oregon. It is better than the paper maps available from various sources - very accurate as it was mapped by the author riding all the pathways with a GPS. Google has started to map bike paths, including in Sunriver. But Google's current map is, sadly, very inaccurate.

This app will show you where you are in relation to the pathways and the key places you might be looking to find.

Reminder - this is a bike pathway map and NOT a street map. If you need a street map for your car, use Apple's excellent Maps application.
