I like the idea but the execution is lacking somewhat. Lean angle recording assumes a rigidly mounted, vertically oriented device and will barely record angles at all with the device laying flat underneath my back seat while I sport ride. (Saw reported angles of 89 degrees on my last ride!) Needs a setting for device orientation to fix that. Reverse engineer the Pirelli Superbike app, guys, they figured it out more or less. Seem to be very few active users in my area, messages go unanswered surprisingly consistently even from users I've met face to face.
Overall pretty nice. I'd like it to update my rides more often. I've road over 300 miles this week, all short rides but it's telling me I've only road a bit over a 100 miles .
After reading the reviews and new updates. I installed today on my S6. filled out set up account page and clicked create. I got a nice box up saying are you sure this is correct. . obviously I clicked yes.... doesn't let me go any further... shame as I was recommended it
In theory it's great but it has done shortcomings. 1- when entering text, the first letter in a sentence isn't automatically capitalized 2-when looking at nearby riders or routes, the map zooms back out as soon as you click on something (why not stay where I zoomed?) 3-There is no option to keep the screen on, which means it goes to sleep and in not 100% sure that crashlight is still running at this point 4- The map doesn't seem to follow you while you ride, so you can't use it for old school map navigation 5- there's no suggestions or contact us option so I have to leave all this in my app review. 6- (the big one) If crashlight is triggered, it gives you three minutes to cancel it, but if you really need help, there's no way to skip those three minutes. (That I'm aware of) I'm going to continue to use the app with the hope that it will get better. The concept is sound and I love the idea of the crashlight feature.
Great concept but unfortunately many ride stats such as lean angle do not seem to work unless the phone is mounted vertically. My phone mount is kept horizontally for best visibility and therefore ride stats are generally useless. After reinstalling the app (to correct app crash issue after upgrade), all previously recorded rides were lost. ESR seems good for social connections for riding but because ESR doesn't have all features of a complete GPS, I find myself switching between Waze and ESR while riding. This interrupts my recorded rides as well. In summary, although ESR seemed like a great app initially, I'm finding it less useful with each ride. If these issues would be corrected, I would love to start using it again.
Kills battery on Android in 2 hours, constant notifications to shut down app to save battery. Not bad concept but lacking in delivery.
- We have improved stability!
- Sorry Samsung S3 devices will not be supported; not enough horsepower :(
- You can't use GPS without Location Services turned on!
