Ratings and Reviews
The Bolt is awesome. The most recent IOS software is Not.
The most recent “upgrade” of software that pairs with the Bolt broke a few functions, namely the ability to create a route from the History of the Bolt. The old software pulled the route from the Bolt and made it an available route in the App, allowing you to recreate the ride. The new App doesn’t “see” any history from the Bolt...it’s a blank page, which makes it impossible to turn the route you just rode into a historically based route...the route is useless, except for data and stats.
I much preferred the prior version of the app. It was easier to use, easier to navigate, and it actually worked. This version...not so much, which is a shame because it detracts from the awesomeness of the GPS head unit which it should be supporting.
So I have an ELEMNT mini. Before the update, it worked. I could make changes, and it would actually save them. Then they updated to 1.6. Nothing worked. Make a change - the button would literally slide right back to default one second later. Change auto-pause, it reverted. Tell it not to display one of the default pages, it wouldn't keep the change. Essentially it meant that the user couldn't do ANYTHING but use the factory default settings.
Then, they updated to this version after hearing many, many such issues from other users. And now? Exactly the same. Not one of the issues was fixed in this update, at least for us lowly mini users. So, i have ordered a different brand of cycling computer and Wahoo has lost me as a customer. This app probably works with the new Roam, but it has made the mini unusable.
Battery hog when not in use
It’s spring time.. so I took the bicycle out for my first rides of the season the last couple days. App was pretty putzy connecting to my element.
Left the app open in the background, which is what you’re supposed to be able to do with apps.. noted that my battery was draining like crazy today. Normally my phone will make it thru the day and still be 60-70% charged. Today I charged it after work from just under 50%. Went to the gym for an hour or two, battery was already back down to 50%. Opened up the Battery section of Settings and guess what, Element taking 50% of my battery in the last 24 hours.. even though the app was not used in the last 24 hours.
