cycle meter down load for HTC

Postby Apple » Sat Feb 12, 2011 11:40 am

Has anyone downloaded a cycle meter program for their phone?
My polar cycle computer is having a major breakdown and fits at the moment and I don't really want to spend 400dollars on a Garmin yet.
But I noticed that my friend uses a cycle meter on her IPhone, I don’t have an Iphone but I do have a HTC2 phone and I looked up on the net that there are programs that can be down loaded.
I would like to do that but would first like to see if anyone else here has done that.

:oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: No Apple especially seeing my wife is on here as well lol. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :D :D :D :D

edit. On another note I have a Polar FT60 hrm, which has been great.However i purchased an edge 500 from wiggle with the hrm and cadence for 300 odd bucks.My world has changed :D :D , the data is unreal, as i am sure many owners of said garmins would attest to.One thing i have noted though, For 2 hours intence riding on the bike the Polar would tell me i expended 2500 odd calories based on heartrate.The garmin however say's i have expended approx 1300, so i am a wee tad confused with that one.. But getting to the point, the Garmins are not that pricey at the moment with the way our dollar is.

I've been using Sports Tracker and am pretty happy with it. I havent gone all out and bought the HRM transmitter though - yet.
It's even got a live update function that I haven't tried yet which should allow SHMBO to actually see where I am in real time when I'm on a long solo. Then again , maybe that's overkill and an invasion on my privacy :twisted: and it does suck a fair bit out of the battery.

I've got a HTC Desire and only used the live mode once, by accident, and don't think the batteries would last much more than three hours in the live mode.I'm only guessing on the time though.

I downloaded this onto my phone, I hope it doesnt rain tomorrow so that I can try it out.
Looks like I will need to buy the Garmin from the local BS :roll: They will see me coming and mark up the price by 50%

I've got an HTC Desire (Android) and have tried the Mapmyride, Endomondo, and MyTracks apps. Of the three I prefer the the MyTracks app which provides more data that the others. That statement needs to be tempered with the fact that I've only used the free versions to date.

None of those apps comes close to the Nokia SportsTracker app. If you get youself a low end Nokia (Pawn shop) with GPS (~$100) and download the app you get a pretty good cycle computer. If you want heart rate, you can get an ANT+ compliant HRM (~$100) which is supported by SportsTracker.

A couple of the Android apps also support ANT+ HRM's.

I have Sports Tracker too. I also bought the Bluetooth HRM which works pretty well most of the time. You have to be careful as to where you put the phone otherwise it may loose the signal.

I bought the HRM from the online shop. It was about $40 less than what I could by it for in Hobart.

So in the four months since the last post, has anyone discovered a better android app or should I just give MyTracks a go for now?

Big thumbs up for sportstracker here, I used it and only bought a garmin because I couldn't find a Bluetooth hrm.

Been playing with Mytracks. Seems OK. Suits me anyway. I send the gpx tracks to PY Trainer on my Linux box for analysis.

There is another called B.icycle But Can't try it as its on a Telstra Smart Touch Android for some reason.

+1 for Endomondo - http://www.endomondo.com

works rather well, and you can attach other things to it with a bluetooth connection for heart rate and cadence, if you wish.
