On The Road for iOS CircleCI

This is the official client for the Valhalla project ( It currently provides a basic implementation for pulling a route between multiple points, and is based on the work done by the good folks from TrailBehind for their GaiaGPS product (

Recommended Installation Method

We recommend using CocoaPods ( to install the library. It only relies on Foundation and UIKit.

pod 'OnTheRoad'

Example Usage

Here is an example which shows how easy it is to use On The Road. Be sure to read the documentation to see all the properties you can customize when making requests.


Route between multiple points:

  OTRRoutingController *router = [[OTRRoutingController alloc] init];

  OTRRoutingPoint *loc1 = [OTRRoutingPoint pointWithCoordinate:OTRGeoPointMake(40.74433, -73.9903) type:OTRRoutingPointTypeBreak];
  OTRRoutingPoint *loc2 = [OTRRoutingPoint pointWithCoordinate:OTRGeoPointMake(40.734807, -73.984770) type:OTRRoutingPointTypeThrough];
  OTRRoutingPoint *loc3 = [OTRRoutingPoint pointWithCoordinate:OTRGeoPointMake(40.732172, -73.998674) type:OTRRoutingPointTypeThrough];
  OTRRoutingPoint *loc4 = [OTRRoutingPoint pointWithCoordinate:OTRGeoPointMake(40.741050, -73.996142) type:OTRRoutingPointTypeBreak];
  NSArray *locations = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:loc1, loc2, loc3, loc4, nil];

  NSDictionary *costingOptions = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:@"use_ferry", @"0", nil];

  NSDictionary *directionsOptions = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:@"units", @"miles", @"language", @"fr-FR", nil];

  [router requestRouteWithLocations:locations costingModel:OTRRoutingCostingModelAuto costingOption:costingOptions directionsOptions:directionsOptions callback:^(OTRRoutingResult * _Nullable result, id  _Nullable invalidationToken, NSError * _Nullable error) {
    if (result) {
      // plot maneuvers on map

For a full list of costing and directions options, be sure to check the turn by turn documentation.
