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 ...

Does https://veloviewer.com/ do it for you? Looks like it ties into strava.

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.

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 ...

Have you tried talking with the people you ride with? If traffic is too noisy to understand each other, look for different routes. What is more, such busy traffic is not the time and place for chit-chat. On a moderately quiet road I find it easy, and pleasant, to chat while riding side by side. When riding in a file yelling and gestures work well. If you ...

If you have a power meter than download something like Golden Cheetah to analyse the data. Otherwise, if you are just using Strava's predictive data - I wouldn't bother as it won't be accurate enough for detailed analysis.

There are many apps available for iOS and Android. Some of the big names: Strava EndoMondo Runkeeper MapMyRide Sports Tracker They all have a mobile application that tracks your ride and then uploads it to a central server, accessible via a website. The website often provides reports and breakdowns of your performance. They also add elevation data, but I'...

Garmin do not publish the firmware or provide support for community modifications, and actually seem to be killing off the one community feature they had allowed (the ability to use non Garmin maps) in some areas. My advice - buy another device for the other bike, or just accept that navigating through 5 menus isn't really that bad:-)

A late answer, but perhaps it helps some people. I used Vmware and not VirtualBox. However: I had to disconnect and connect the usb port in VMWare, even though Windows noticed that usb was connected to Windows. Shimano DI2 disagreed. A software reconnect of usb inside VMWare fixed this. The solution suggested about D-Fly does not fix this. I have D-Fly ...

You could try looking at your ride through Veloviewer which offer a lot of very nice ways to dig into your data.

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 ...

A height profile for a past ride can be obtained from Strava: If you need a almost exact picture, with incline highlights, and selected topographic names pointed out, I think the only way to achieve that is to write a program yourself, combining data from free sources: Openstreetmap for names and open DEM data for elevation information. Elevation ...

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 ...

I have been using GarminConnect and it does have one feature that helps with reminders. You estimate a lifespan and enter it. Garmin then creates a simple pie chart with per centage to show how far along you have in miles toward that estimated lifespan. For example, I tend to wear out tires fast due to my large body frame & weight of 205 so I've been ...

Google Maps for iPhone now has bike layer support and bike-specific navigation starting with update on July 16, 2013, version 2.0

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

There is https://tapiriik.com/ but it does not have Movescout support yet. There is voting page for new services: https://tapiriik.com/supported-services-poll

I believe you are asking two different questions: the first, how to use Coggan's Power Profile; and the second, given power at one duration, how to extrapolate and predict power at other durations. But first, an historical aside: Coggan's Power Profiles pre-date the publication of his book with Hunter Allen so really should be thought of as Coggan's own. ...

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 ...

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 ...

If all your rides are already on Strava, you should have a look at veloviewer which allows you to dig into it in ways Strava doesn't. You need to pay a small subcription (£10/year) to enjoy all of your rides, but if you do you have almost endless way to search through your activities as illustrated below. The summary section on veloviewer is also endlessly ...

We don't recommend products here, Mapmyride is what i and several friends use though, it's free. Does not allow exportation as far as i know. That is a lot of wants out of an app. You might be better pressed to look into the high end gps enabled cycling computers rather than a phone based app. Strava is one of the most popular for a reason, it offers ...

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!

I use IPbike for Android. It has strava upload in case you want it but also gives you files in sensible formats by sensible means. It's got sensor integration but I use it with only GPS. You can give it a good try before you buy. The author is no stranger to this site; despite being almost a neighbour of mine according to play store, I've no connection (...

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 ...

I love my Edge 500 and just use the GPS, no sensors needed, I get speed and distance and a great map after uploading, just no cadence (I am aware that the speed/cadence sensor does give better speed/distance but I like the ease of using the device on all my bikes without having to buy and pair extra sensors). As far as GPS signal, I turn it on and set in a ...

Cycle Meter is by far my favorite due to its ease of use, functionality (syncs with everything), and support. the company rocks, the app rocks, and it's cheap when compared to an standalone garmin.
