Agree to warning on every ride??
I have a few wishlist items for my cobi and this app (e.g. google maps routing, longer accelerometer based turn signals, flashing headlight and tail light, etc), but for the most part, this thing is amazing with nothing out there quite like it.
The latest app update brings a warning screen that must be dismissed on EVERY SINGLE RIDE. Super annoying. Can we have this remember that I acknowledged the warning already and not force me to tap it before every ride?
Excellent App - study how to use
Another update after two months of steady use. Now that I have been using this app for over 2 months three to four times per week I can honestly say that this app is great! I studied the digital manual and started to use all the settings and dialed in exactly what I wanted it to do and it has made my riding very enjoyable. I highly recommend reading the manual to maximize all the well thought out features of this app. Thanks Cobi team!
I have been actively using the app for 2 weeks and I have to say it has been very helpful in keeping me informed on battery life, rate of speed and distance on a large easy readout on my phone while being held on the clip and connected to the included phone charger. I also appreciate how it connects to Strava App to keep a history of my rides. Now I’m going to try out connecting to Komoot app as well.
I particularly like how I can keep my phone charged so I can play my music the entire way and use navigation without draining my phone battery on 30 mile trips. Next I want to start playing around with the mapping feature and see how that works. Have not figured out how to turn off the voice which can be annoying when I’m switching riding modes two or three times on hills, no obvious turn off mode. Overall I’m happy with the COBI hub and look forward to more updates with improvements.
This App issues that need to be addressed
Are use this app every day and it has some issues that need to be addressed and fixed. With the use of the Apple Watch the app is supposed to start a work out and record it on your phone automatically it did this for me almost always and abruptly stopped on April 6, 2020. I like to be able to see my map on my phone which this had provided I have to disable the heartbeat part of the Apple Watch and just do regular Apple Watch bicycle workouts to get a map of my ride. Also the compass is almost always 90° out of being accurate. Also I am having trouble maintaining 10 contacts and I cannot longer add more than five, and when I do try to add someone nothing happens. Also the contact list changes magically from five of the 10 I used to have displaying different ones each day. Otherwise I love all the features of the app in the amount of information It offers about my ride. I wish someone would please fix the rest of these issues
