IpBike aims to be feature rich - comparing to stand alone bike computes its Garmin 810 class rather than Garmin 200 or 500. If you want a simple app please look else where.

The free version of IpBike is limited to one million wheel revolutions (or equivalent in gps only mode 2070mm wheel). For permanent use after this you will need to get the IpBikeKey app which will unlock this limitation.

IpBike uses IpSensorMan to provide access to ANT+, Btle and BlueTooth sensors. If you have a compatible phone and do not have IpSensorMan installed you will be prompted to install it. You can use an ANT USB Stick if your phone supports USB host mode. For Hrv Muscle Oxygen and Btle you need the beta version see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=IpSensorMan-beta

    Avec les nouveaux smartphones écran large, connectés, et ANT+ en version Android. Cette application mérite un beau coup d’œil. Je l’utilise sur un S4 avec les capteurs HR et CAD de Décathlon (pourquoi payer + cher), ça marche nickel. Complétement paramétrable, tout est possible. Bravo le développeur. Il va bientôt remplacer mon vrai « GPS vélo » car mieux. Remplacer la batterie d’origine par une p

    At first glance it appeared chintzy, but it is highly customizable and one of the FEW that works with bluetooth LE sensors on Android. Once the locating is done the first time it seems to sync up well. I am impressed! I USED to use MapMyRide But no more! They are pretty set in their app and dont want to broaden it into the Android market. It took me a bit to get used to it and its many opt

    Simply the best in class. I got a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active smartphone the day they came out. I believe that ANT+ and BTle devices coupled with smartphones are the future for bike instrumentation. I had an ANT+ heart rate monitor and ordered an ANT+ speed/cadence sensor along with a weatherproof handlebar mount (solves the wet screen issue). Now I have TMI (too much information).

    I'm using a Wahoo Blue SC Bluetooth LE Speed/Cadence sensor and the recent Beta release for support of BTLE works flawlessly for me on my S4. Also old Bluetooth 2.0 HR sensor works. Love the huge level of customisation available and all the available data metrics, mapping, plotting, etc. The ease of uploading to my Strava account is very handy.

    It will be good to implement "auto-resume" option and fix bug with "auto rotate" - when switched on it is impossible to move map adequately.

    I find it impossible to customize the display. I would like to set different metrics, but the help page seems to be outdated and the language is way too complicated for a noon tech person.
