I don't know that you can do this with the apps you are talking about. However there is hope. Going back to first principles, you have a pc on which you want to create your route, and you have an android device which you want to stick on your bike and use for navigation. Correct? If you accept that you need to abandon Google Maps altogether, there are ...

This will run in python (only 3.X, not 2.7), a free to install programming language. Simply save the following as a file ending .py - e.g. timetrials.py. Then open IDLE3 (start menu), and open the file (Ctrl+O). Finally, press F5 to start it. import datetime from operator import itemgetter def get_int_input(prompt, min_=0, max_=None): """Get a valid ...

You mention Strava: they do that for you. If you register components and parts of your bike like a chain it will show the mileage from the registering date. It might a bit problematic if you have two sets of wheels (like one for rain and another for sunny days)that you use alternatively.

One option is RaceSplitter. This is an iOS app, costs $35. You will need a suitable iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to run it on. You can enter a start list in advance. Then during the race, you just have to enter the rider number as they cross the finish line, and it will record their time. You can then publish the results on the website, and export to Excel ...

Strava is now connected with Movescount so you can sync together your stuff via this site.

I found driod support for these kinds of sensors to be patchy at best and not yet what I consider ready for prime time. Manufacturer provided software is often crap, third party often don't support the hardware. Many claims of features and devices suppported apply to the iPhone versions only. I current use Digifit iCardio on my driod phone with Scorche ...

For a chain, you typically just take your chain wear tool and see if the chain is sufficiently worn, periodically. Cassettes can be done visually (though cog wear tools like the one which is made by Rohloff) exist. These are usually better served by checking cause they're dependent on riding conditions and product types (e.g. 10 speed chains last less long ...

We've used an app for android phones made by Liuto. It was great, easy to learn/use and cheap --only $1.11. Basically, when each rider goes off by start number, you tap their corresponding number on their return and the calculation of their time versus overall elapsed time is complete. Snap!

Android can just about handle multiple BTLE sensors simultaneously but there are still some low level Android bugs that make it rather unreliable. The coding for is also a good bit more complex to get working than the single sensor case. I have support in my app IpBike via a beta version of IpSensorMan At this point in time if you were getting new then an ...

If you are willing to use slightly different tools I think I can help. You can plot a route with the excellent BikeHike which uses Google Maps data and shows you OS maps alongside. You can then use the route on your phone with the OsmAnd (Android) app - which offers turn-by-turn voice navigation with offline maps and with your display disabled, saving ...

If you are planning your tour for Europe, you can give komoot a try. It offers exactly that: Planning a route on PC, synchronizing it with your Android or iOS device, and letting your mobile device navigate you along your route - even with voice navigation. However, you have to pay for voice navigation and offline maps. You pay for each "region" where you ...

The Moveslink software that manages to download stuff from your watch and uploads it to Movescount also keeps a backup of the files on your computer. Unfortunately this is some xml file which is not necessarily directly compatible to other platforms. But there's help! Some nice guy wrote ambit2gpx, a tool that converts the Suunto style xml file to a gpx file ...
