    I really thought this was a spoof he was doing at first. Won’t I be proud if I get one of those - haha.

    I too prefer RWGPS, and it uploads my rides to my free Strava. I am certainly not concerned with actual stats- after all, does it matter if I averaged 12.1 or 11.7 (or 11.3 for that matter!) mph? Not to me. I'm more concerned logging my miles.

    Interesting though, as Strava gets ride data from RWGPS, it counts total time as moving time.

    Best regards

    So they brought back BTLE support on the Strava app for heart rate monitors but not for any other BTLE sensors. :rolleyes: I guess it's OK if you're a runner but still sucks if you're a cyclist. I never cared for the Strava cycling app. I have it on my phone but only so I can modify my rides. It's much easier and faster on the app than using a mobile browser.

    I use it when I ride the MTB. It seems to track better than the GPS in either my Garmin or Wahoo in the woods for some reason. Oddly I've NEVER with any type of sensor on any of my mountain bikes. No cadence, power or HR. I would consider power but I care not to see the other statics when I ride in the woods :D
