Mapping support is either online or offline using Mobile Atlas Creator or MapsForge .map files.
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.

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

Barometer support My favorite feature by far is the ability to use my phones barometer (nexus 5) as a means of getting altitude data.

Not for the serious The app is tough to use, unstable (shuts down frequently in the middle of exercise) and poorly organized. The screen layout is brutal and configuring it is a pain. That said its free and can collect data from a wide variety of sensors. Good for someone starting out or someone interested in learning more about training with data. But once you decide you like measuring your workouts, do yourself a favour and get a real system

All good Use this with a quadlock mount kit. Get the sensors u need job done. Only one thing if you have the phones screen on all the time battery life is decreased approx 30% in 2hours for me on my s4. Use auto brightness
