Data can be from google or OpenStreetMap which includes a cycling specific view. Your ride route is showen and you can load a .gpx or .kml file with a route to follow, or selct a route from previous rides.  Mobile Atlas Creator can be used to make compatible map files for IpBike see map files for instructions this means you can have maps without a mobile signal.

  • Stop screen dimming - Power hungry but you can always see the display.
  • Stop screen switching off. It will dim but will not go off, intermediate for power.
  • Disable keyguard. Screen can switch off but the keygaurd is off so a single hard button press gets you back.
  • Disable Map
  • Disable Gps
  • Telephony off disables the cell functionality for extended run-time and no interruptions.

Application Integration

You can use the standard Android Send action with any compatible app you have installed. This is available for the Ride Editor, with the selected file type or just the textual description being sent. The plot can be sent as an image, the textural description is also sent but most apps Send implementations with an image do not pick it up. It is also in the clipboard though so it's easy to paste it as a caption with the picture.  So you can easaly email a ride or ftp it off the phone.

Web intergration

 

There is upload support from the ride editor at the moment for the following websites.

AttackPoint

RunKeeper

TrainingPeaks

SportTracks.mobi

Strava

StriveMax

Trainingstagebuch

RunningAHEAD

CyclingAnalytics

VeloHero

Google Fit

What's Today's Plan

If you want to set up your own fitness website I have added in support for the OpenFitApi so check it out. 

Some of these other sites have the ability to upload via email these include RideWithGps and MapMyTracks.  IpBike has an automated send feature to help with this task. 

Customisable display

The screen setup for when you are out riding is very customisable.  You have multiple screens you can swipe between and you can configure what its on each screen including setting the text sizes for the displayed items.

Sony SmartWatch supoport is described here.  Customised UI for next generation full Android Based SmartWatches.
