Ratings and Reviews
Works great for its core features
I love Wahoo for the simplicity and reliability of the ELEMNT Bolt. I don’t want a 5” color display in front of me when I’m on the bike, but I still want to see critical data, such as power, W/Kg, etc. and the ELEMNT is perfect for this.
I have NEVER had my ELEMNT crash or fail to fully record a ride—something I can’t say for the previous bike GPS I had... plus the WiFi/Bluetooth upload works flawlessly. Yes, the navigation could be improved, but with some common sense it works well.
Import Route GPX feature Copy to Element on iOS doesn’t work.
The instructions say you can import a route on by selecting a downloaded GPX file (I did this via Safari from MTBProject) and select Copy to ELEMENT.
THIS DOES NOT WORK BECAUSE THAT OPTION DOES NOT SHOW IN THE iOS SHARE DUALOG.
This severely limits the usefulness of the app and device if you are trying to download a GOX file and sync it to your Element device using your phone alone. The alternative of connecting to actual WiFi is very tedious and not an option when you are already at the trailhead with LTE but not WiFI.
Needs a few things
For the most part it’s a good app for great bike computer. I would have given it 5 stars but it lacks an odometer and the ability to adjust the screen backlighting brightness. The default brightness can be a bit much when the computer is staring at you in pitch black. I have to tilt the screen away due to the glare. Not to mention it’s sucking up more energy than needed.
