You can upload .fit .gpx or .kml route files to follow as you ride.

Real time plot available with your critical stats updated as you ride.

Multi step workouts can be designed with time, distance, heart rate or power based durations. Targets can be power, cadence, heart rate or speed based. Repetitions can be counts or till time or distance targets. Support for FIT workout format file import and export. Feedback on target and progress.

Text to speech audio feedback available with customisation over what is read back and when.

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. If you want lots of features please be prepared to take time to learn how to use them see http://www.iforpowell.com/cms/index.php?page=help


Limitations.

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

Only app for me. I don't want remotes that don't work after a time to small screens or wires so this on a smart phone is great. Don't want Strava average speed need actual. Want GPS speed for reliability and ANT cadence also for reliability so this app ticks the boxes. Probably the best part though is the prompt comprehensive support and free long time use.

Great cycling computer app! Not the simplest to figure out but this is a great cycling app. Easy pair with my Duotrap. Map function works. I forgot my polar HR monitor but looks like it'll map that too. Great work! Thank you.
