Getting started

Read all you need to know before you start.

Mobile App

Free route app

The mobile eRoutes app can be downloaded for iPhones from the App Store and for Android phones from Google Play.

The app works best on Android phones from version 5 and all versions after that. On an iPhone (iOS) the app works best on version 9.3.5 and all subsequent versions. The app also works on all of the older operating systems but might show performing issues. Because GPS antennas on these phones are older, it can take longer for the app to find routes on your location.

When you use the app for the first time, you will be greeted by 3 information screens. Simply navigate through these screens by swiping to the right or tapping ‘Next’ until you reach the login screen. Or click ‘Skip’ to go directly to the login screen.

If you already have an eRoutes app account, choose ‘Login’ and enter your email address and password to log in.

If you don’t have an account yet, click on ‘Register’ to quickly create your free account. Enter your email address and choose a password for your account. Then choose ‘Register account’ to continue.

You can also choose to register with your Facebook account. To do this, you need to be logged in to Facebook first.

Finally, activate your account by confirming your email address via the email sent to you, after which you can log into the app directly.

Do you want to find a route to run or walk? Then choose ‘Find your route’ from the home screen to have the app generate a route based on your desired distance.

The eRoutes app uses the GPS location of your phone. In order to be able to find routes and navigate you, you need to give the app permission to your location.
