Padrone+ is the best of the Cycling Computers that do not require regular charging. This App works in concert and has matured to be very good, customizable, and just works well when out on the road. I use it with Android 8.0 Oreo and a Google Nexus 6P.
The latest firmware cause the computer to shut down and now will not start up. Replaced batteries three times. The AC button will not initiate. Mode does nothing. It's as though the firmware locked it up and locked me out.
Using Samsung A8+ worked well for me. For android users do remember to turn on "Automatic date and time" if you are not receiving gps speed reading
Was very good until Android 8. Come on Cateye, pull your finger out and update the app. Until you do, all I have is a useless bit of plastic attached to my handlebars! Very unhappy.
The app used to be awesome in Android 7, but in 8.0 I quit being able to use my Padrone Smart+ (Bluetooth issues). With 8.1 I can connect to my computer now. However, I lose connection during the 4 mile ride.
Terrible app, nasty looking UI, data upload always fails, the list goes on... Open source it, so at least the community can fix the bugs.
What's New in Version 2.0.1
Support new version of PADRONE SMART+ firmware 2.3.0b.
