  1. odometer

    An odometer that would display the total distance rode that's cumulative of all the rides taken would be a nice feature.

    • Upload by default

      Each time I finish a ride, I have to check "upload right". It would be great if there was an option for this checkbox to be checked by default.

      • My friends are always posting strava rides on their facebook, how do I do this with this app?

        Im not tec savvy at all, but competing with my friends through facebook is fun and easy since some aren't in my state. I dont see this option on there so Im guessing its not on there.

        • please add a "are you sure you want to exit yes/no" function

          Please add this function, its very easy to lose a ride log if you use another app at the same time. Cyclometer closes with one push of the back button, whether you have saved or not. I lost a PB time yesterday.... Grrrr :)

          • A setting that would allow the user to determine how long to wait before pausing recording.

            Ive never noticed this before, but on a ride this past weekend, I was climbing a particularly steep hill and I took a break partway up, and at the top as well. Yet when I uploaded to strava, I was shown to have a particularly fast hill climb, even taking a KOM in one spot. Curious, I converted the gpx file to text, and noticed that when the user is standing still, the time is just recorded as the same as the last point known moving point. This gives the user an unfair advantage for things like segments, allowing them…

            • Allow it to run in the background

              I would like it to run in the background and have a gps navigation app at the front. I don't think this works at the moment.

              Better yet team up with Cycle Streets as their gps tracking sucks but yours is great and create the perfect cycle tracker/route planner/gps app.

              • collapse/sort similar rides when prompting to load ride for comparison

                I ride the same route many times, and several different routes from the same start point (e.g. my house). It would be awesome instead of having to flip through the multiple instances of the same ride to find the fastest one, if the app did that for me and only showed me the fastest time on each route.

                  Technically it already does that. The only time you’ll get multiple rides if you have rides it deems are not exactly the same — then it asks you to choose which one to load. But the app already groups rides it deems the same, and automatically races you against the fastest in the group.

                    • Allow re-uploading of data

                      Sometimes the data is uploaded but does not appear on Strava. Would like to be able to retry the upload in this situation. You could put a 2 hour delay on reenabling it or something.

                      • add an auto save option wben ending ride.

                        It would help those of us who hit the back button instead of save and then lose all the info for that ride. My fault I know. I should concentrate on what I'm doing.

                        • Persist data periodically (not just on suspend) to be robust to crashes

                          Persist data periodically (not just during suspend) to be robust to crashes. I've lost data several times due to the app crashing.

                          • Have a switch to hide the map and show bigger numbers instead.

                            If one mounts a phone running this to handlebars, one rarely wants to look at the map. Having easier to read numbers in such cases would be nice.

                              • Prevent from closing app when ride is active or not saved. Perhaps add auto-save feature to save completed rides.

                                App has one very nasty but easy to fix flaw - it is possible to close app by single accidental hit of the Back button. Even if app is currently in ride mode it will close no questions asked. I lost one ride like that. I suggest you pop confirmation window if that scenario occurs and until user confirmed keep app running / recording. Also once ride is stopped it would be nice to have autosave option.

                                • Heart Rate Monitor

                                  It would be nice if this app could connect with a HRM. This feature could help increase the effectiveness of the workout. It would also allow for much more accurate calorie burn calculations. I ride a particular trail regularly and using CycloMeter it calculates that I burn ~70 calories. When I used my iPhone with Digifit and a HRM tied in the calorie burn was ~500. Still have enjoyed the app and look forward to future updates.

                                    Ok guys, I’ve just released another beta with the HR monitor addin. I’ll let that run for another week, then assuming no more issues surface, will release to the Marketplace by end of next week. If you want to purchase your Zephyr HxM monitor in the meanwhile, you can use coupon code CYCMETER for 5% off. Then it’ll arrive just in time for the app support! :)

                                    • fix calorie count

                                      Cyclometer currently shows way more calories burnt. One hour ride shows 2500 calories burnt which is not correct. I also compared multiple apps and Cyclometer count was way off.

                                        • Add elevation

                                          This one may be a little more complicated as compared to the other improvements I've suggested.

                                          One statistic I use a lot as a measure of my hike is my elevation gain/loss. Depending on the map API you use, there may be an elevation element that gives you the elevation at the coordinates plus or minus a few dozen feet.

                                          When you grab a point, check the elevation. If it is higher than at the last point, add it to a running total of Gain. If it is less, add it to the elevation Loss. Any +/- footage can be…

                                            Tweaked the elevation functionality:

                                            • made the altitude chart button a bit bigger
                                            • worked on getting altitude gained/lost a little more accurate. In the end it’s a limitation of the GPS and not too much I can do, but hopefully it should be a bit better than now.

                                            the new algorithm for gained/lost calculation is:

                                            given point A, and point B, which report an elevation difference of X. If X is < vertical accuracy reported by the GPS, ignore point B, and wait for point C, then repeat.

                                            Hope that makes sense. Please provide additional comments on how the altitude feature is working for you.

                                            Thanks!
