Current version: 1.0 (build 8).

Ride safely, obey traffic rules, watch where you are going, and wear a helmet.

Bike Computer is an Android application available in the Google Play Store here . The app functions like a bike computer you could buy at your bike shop with a few differences. There are two versions of the app - free and pro. The free version shows your speed, direction of travel, and distance traveled on your current ride. The pro version also shows top speed, average speed, time of your ride, and an odometer for total miles. You can pause and resume recording of speed and distance. A stats screen shows the statistics from your most recent ride.

Quick Start

To record a ride, click start button and start riding. You'll see your speed, direction, and distance on the screen. When you are done riding, press pause button and end ride button.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes my speed seems inaccurate for a while. Why is that?

The Bike Computer App relies on the accuracy of the global positioning system (GPS) location data from your phone. There can be times when the location data is inaccurate. That affects the speed calculation. The app uses some internal filtering and logic to try to make up for GPS inaccuracies, but it is not perfect.

Why does it take 10 seconds or so after I turn a corner for the app to display my correct heading?

There is a delay due to the filtering algorithms in the app.

My speed display seems to lag my actual speed by about 15 seconds. Why?

This has to do with the inaccuracies of the GPS signal and the filtering that the app does. The speed display is actually your average speed over the last 20 seconds or so.
