Re: Navigation app - powered by CycleStreets, running on iPhone, with voice navigation
Tony and Berwyn, thanks for your responses.
Tony – Komoot is very focused on the countryside, whereas I’m after directions around London. But mainly, I believe it does NOT use CycleStreets route data – please tell me if I’m wrong. Though I prefer OSM that’s not one of my requirements, but CycleStreets routing is.
Berwyn – Google Maps does NOT use CycleStreets route data.
Why I like CycleStreets - in areas of London that I know well, I’ve compared CycleStreets routes with those recommended by Google Maps, and CycleSteets routes are much better. I am very keen to have voice navigation but not at the expense of good routing.
3 requirements = iPhone; voice navigation; CycleStreets routes. The search continues!

Co-Rider did what you want and while it still works on the latest iOS it doesn’t look like its on the App Store any more. You could try Komoot. It uses Open Street Map rather than Open Cycle Map but as I understand it the only difference is the visualisation layer showing more useful info for cyclists but the same underlying database. Komoot offers OCM on its web version but not on its app version. You could use Komoot for voice navigation and keep OCM for if you need to look for a bike shop etc.
