Great Display I've been using MapMyRide for 300 miles or so and decided to compare this version of B.iCycle. The display of "All Values" is much easier to read than the similar display in MapMyRide, particularly in direct sunlight! Even at night, I really liked the large numeric display and the backgrounds. Great work, albeit with the possible altitude issues. For the record, in my area, the GPS seems to record altitude fairly well in B.iCycle. Thanks for your great work and for integrating the Google Earth export!
Climbed altitude way off So, all is fine on my Galaxy Note, except for the climbed altitude data. After cycling around 20 Km on flat land(not in the city), the app says I climbed 900 meters. The same happens each and every tour(I have over 10 behind me with this app). As a result, the callories data is also way off. I wish it was this easy, but it ain't, so the app is kinda worthless from my point of view. Oh, sometimes the positioning goes crazy too, but that's just in the city, reflections caused by tall buildings I guess.
Wish it was accurate This app has the nicest and easiest interface of the many cycling gps apps I have tried. Unfortunately, on one completed ride it crashed and lost all my data. The mileage and altitude are also not accurate. It's too bad I really like the look and ease of use of this app, I am now using mapmyride.
Only Used a Few times... So far I really like this app. Not to sure about the accurate of the info/data. See a few post where the altitude is off??? Anyone know if this is accurate or not....? Everything seems to work fine, have a mount for the Phoneand like how it is set up, I listen to Pandora radio while riding or my book. Like that it saves your data and allows you to upload it to FB,email or twitter. Nice app... No issues... Phone is Casio Gzone
Ride track cuts off after 8-10 miles This is a great app with one really annoying quirk. The map of the ride cuts off after 8-10 miles, every single time. The total distance seems about right, calories, time and speed...the important stuff, but if the ride is longer than 10 miles the mapping just stops. It happens whether I get phone calls or not and it's really annoying. If you can live without the ride map it's pretty decent.
Maddening I love this app when it works. However, 50% of the time, I start the app up, slip the android into my jersey pocket, and when I get home, I discover that something has touched the screen and causes the app to pause/stop. Arrrrg. Drives me crazy. I don't want to buy the mount for the bike, just make the app less sensitive to screen touches.
