How many people actually pay for Strava "Premium"?
This article quotes Strava as saying 20% of users pay fees, much higher than I would have guessed: http://www.outsideonline.com/fitness/biking/How-Strava-Is-Changing-the-Way-We-Ride.html
I assume us freeloaders will be subjected to advertising in due course (once Strava judge they have achieved critical mass in terms of community size and competition won’t start up against them) but I haven’t seen any yet.
Currently I don’t use it enough, or value the extra features enough, to pay for premium at the current cost. Perhaps that would be better expressed as ‘I don’t take it seriously enough’, it’s just a toy for me and I think it’s fairly prone to error on short segments too.Posted 4 years ago
Dig a little deeper and youll find the GPS problems went with the ICS update. It’s also not as old as the Edge 500, which a good deal of folk seek to use for uploading to Strava, if you’re playing the “old” card. I’m not suggesting by any means that the S2 is better for tracking than a stand alone GPS but the accuracy issues lie with Stravas Software not the phone. Readings are also excellent on MM Tracker and on Maverick.Posted 4 years agoaracerSubscriber
I do like the suffer score though (how often do you get told you are Epic?)
You’re epic, alibongo (that was a freebie)
Here’s a shot of the GPS accuracy which I think is pretty reasonable for an old phone
<shrugs> you’re the one complaining about poor tracking – not a problem I have.
BTW your phone almost certainly wasn’t free – you just bought it on HP.Posted 4 years ago
yep strava app works on many other phones.
oddly i cant find many references to GPS issues with ICS upgrade – what i see is tech folk saying its the how the chipset is implemented into the phone that causes the issues.
So unless ICS removes the chip and puts it in badly then its a known issue with the s2.
FWIW my iphone 3gs and 4 used to track nicely.
my edge 205 and forerunner 305 were a bit more sporradic
my edge 500 you can see exactly what side of the road i rode down.
as i said before your other apps dont need every second data points so it can disguard erroneous data points that are clearly gibberish.
but if your convinced your phones so great – crack on , it doesnt effect me. Cant help the unhelpable.Posted 4 years ago
