Ratings and Reviews
Essential on my GXI, major room for improvement
Why essential? The bike itself stores the current odometer reading, and battery state only.
The app tracks all the interesting stuff including trip miles, pedal vs battery power used, average speed and cadence. And it shows history for today, week, and all time. But... that info is good only if the app is running every time you ride.
Why essential #2... You need the app to change power profiles and see which one is active. The built-in profiles are a good start. Editing, naming and saving custom profiles is not hard. At 200 miles and a month owned, I’m testing profiles for decreased battery draw at medium speeds: good for exercise and battery life. App critical for that.
There’s one BIG frustration. The app won’t work reliably in the background. When choosing bike routes with Google Maps, I must rely on voice prompts and can’t look at the map after I launch Gocycle app and connect to the bike. If I leave the app, I must re-connect on return. That often starts a new trip and related stats. No doubt programming to run in the background is hard but it must be done for the app to be its best.
Incredibly poor software, I would not buy a GoCycle again
Gocycle makes good bikes, but the iOS software is written incredibly poorly and for this reason alone I would not recommend buying the bikes at this point. I wanted to change a setting on the bike and for some reason the iOS software had lost my registration. It required me to step through the entire very lengthy registration process again, checking about 20 items that can’t be skipped, filling out various information which of the very poor network connection out in the Sierra Nevada took over half an hour. The iOS app is the only way to perform some bike functions, and I learned that simple operations like an iOS update can make it essentially inoperable unless you have a fast network connection. This is terrible design, please replace your iOS app development team!
OK when it works
The Gocycle app is great... when it works. About 30% of the time the app shows no data or wrong data in the beginning of your ride. The only way I’ve found to recover is stop riding. Kill the app. Reboot your phone and hope everything works when you go through the whole process again. Very buggy on initialization of a new ride.
