Poor for Bosch

After upgrading my eBikeConnect to a Kiox very excited to try the app. It connected easily great start. Went out for a ride to see how it all works. The kiox works fine showing all the features first ride complete let’s check on the app.
Unfortunately that is the positive over. The big issues I have.
1. As I found out unless you keep the location tracking in the background all the time (I have issues with location data on all the time) other apps have it just when using app. This does affect the battery life of the phone and why do Bosch need to know where I am all the time.
2. The syncing is done in Bosch time so first ride only half the data was available until the next time I used the bike. 2nd ride tried to force the sync no chance. The last ride I did showed on the kiox, Never arrived on the phone. What is the point of tracking your months ride if it does not log everything. Nearly every ride has different data missing. Telling me “synced just recently” does not help 2 days later and not updated.
3. What is the point of showing fields in the activity if it never shows. Ascent and decent have never given a value . It shows altitude so why no ascent or decent.

Use this for fun, if you want to log rides use a cycle computer or cycle app far more reliable.

Come on Bosch you are supposed to be leaders in this technology. At the moment others give a far better user experience.

An update for the bike!!

My Nyon on-board computer has just received an update. I thought "hey, they've listened to my complaint that you cannot save a destination or a route, nor can you point to the map and tell it to create a route to that point. A bit lacking really, considering that it's supposed to be a sat-nav.
Anyway, after the update, I find that the only thing that seems to have changed is that there are more "points of interest" installed. I now have a category for Helipads. As all serious cyclists know, it's a big problem when you can't find the nearest helicopter.
.........
9 Aug 2017. Update on my update about the update....
There have now been a few more (updates) since I wrote the above, and, credit where it's due, it is getting better. The whole Nyon thing is becoming better and slicker, with screens that are nice to use. So long as you use the excellent online portal to set up your Nyon then it is a great thing for the bike, even though the on board satnav control is still way too basic. (Anyway, I've added a couple of stars)

Don’t know whether it’s been updated but it’s better than I expected

Having read all the reviews I didn’t have any expectations at all, but given it’s free I thought why not. But my experience is so different to some of the others. I’ve installed Komoot and it works brilliantly with this app, they share data so the ride is updated on Komoot even if you forget to record the tour.
The Bosch app doesn’t show climb and decent but Komoot does even though the data comes from the Bosch app.
The map function works in the app so you can see where you got to in the app as well as with Komoot.
What I really love though is the power and cadence statistics you can get from the app. It allows you to set improvement goals not just for times but also how much effort you put in versus how much the motor puts in. It shows what support modes you use and for how much of the ride and so again you can challenge yourself to “do more” rather than let the motor push you up the hill.
I’ve not had any synch issues albeit there is sometimes a lag whilst it seems to process the data and get all the ducks in a row but we’re taking mins not days.
I don’t know whether I’m just lucky or whether it’s been updated but this app is sorted.
