Cannondale App v3.0 introduces Start/End buttons (see overview), and changes how and when rides sync and appear in the app. To give you full control over your ride tracking experience we are now prioritizing Start/End. Whenever you press Start, the app will keep recording until you press End - period. And the app will never automatically combine that with any other ride segments.
This article explains several common problems with missing or incomplete rides and ride data discrepancies.
Rides recorded by Wheel Sensor only
If you have ride segments that were recorded by the Wheel Sensor only (you did not use the Ride screen Start/End buttons), those will appear in the app whenever you next manually sync your sensor with the app. Go to Activity, tap Sync and follow instructions to spin and connect your wheel sensor.
Note that it takes 5 minutes of inactivity for a ride segment to be available to sync from the Wheel Sensor. So if you are missing your most recent ride or the last portion of it, then wait until the Wheel Sensor has been motionless for 5+ minutes and try to sync again.
Missing Maps or Ascent?
Rides recorded by the Wheel Sensor Only do not record location, maps and Ascent. To record GPS and Ascent, use the Ride screen Start button to track your rides.
Also, for improved accuracy and consistency, starting with v3.0 the app only records Ascent if your phone has a barometric altimeter. Some current Android phones do not have a barometric altimeter.
Editing ride statistics
Maybe you forgot to hit Start or End on time, or your phone died while riding, but your wheel sensor got it all? You can choose the source that best represents your ride or edit manually.
Tap into any ride from your Activity list, then tap Edit > Edit ride data.
In this example, the rider forgot to press Start in the app until 11 minutes into the ride. After switching to the Wheel Sensor source in Edit ride data, the statistics update to show the complete ride. Note: because the wheel sensor does not record GPS data, the map does not change.
You can also tap Enable Manual editing and manually edit any ride statistics you choose.
Never pressed Start Ride
With a Wheel Sensor: The basic ride data (without GPS and ascent) will have been recorded by the Wheel Sensor and will appear whenever you next manually sync your Sensor. See "Rides recorded by Wheel Sensor only" above.
Without a Wheel Sensor: You can manually add a missed ride to your Activity list. Tap +Add Ride from the top right corner of Activity.
Ride segments combined
Wheel Sensor only ride segments (that do not overlap with any Start/End rides you recorded in the App) are automatically combined with any other Wheel Sensor ride segments whenever they are less than three hours apart and more than 100 meters in length.
- 12:00-13:00 you rode 1 hour for 20km
- 15:00-15:05 you rode 5 minutes for 500m
- 18:00-19:00 your rode 1 hour for 20km
- Once all three of those separate ride segments have synced from your Wheel Sensor, they will combine into one ride with 12:00 start time, 2:05 moving time, 7:00 total time, 40.5km.
Recording rides with the app in the background
You can lock your phone or send the app to the background and it will continue recording the ride, but beware that if you Force Quit/Stop the app (for example, swiping up on the app from the home screen app switcher) it will no longer be running in the background and will not be able to continue recording.
