Move! Bike Computer



 

What is that?

BikeComputer is android application. Main goal of app is to substitute and extend functionality of standard bike speedometer. Of course it can be used in any activity, where speed and distance matters.

What can it do?


Basic speedometer functions:
  • Display your current speed.
  • Display maximum speed
  • Display average speed and trip time, optionally excluding idle time (user defined idle speed limit)
A bit more...
  • record GPS path
  • export track to .KML format used i. e. by Google Earth
  • View saved tracks on map.
  • Work in background mode, so you can use your phone in any way and still have your track recorded.
Please also see FAQ.

How to install?

Track points filter. (done - version 1.1.0)

Some track points will not be  saved and / or exported. Filter will omit points if:
