weird - images from tapatalk post do NOT show on webbrowser but do show in the tapatalk app.

anyways, so here's my Q:
I have a smartphone holder on my bike so I can see it.
I start bikebrain and just glance at it as I ride to see how far I've rode, heartrate, etc.
The dashboard.

Does Trailforks or Starva have similiar dashboard?
Or, do I need to just start all 3 apps to record their data ....

Well guess i'm not the only one who's asked for a real time dashboard ...

Looks like I'll stick with BikeBrain + Trailforks, as for now I don't care about strava social stuff.

Looks like you can have Strava auto sync to Trailforks so you could link them and run Strava.

https://www.trailforks.com/ridelog/stravaguide/

Now if you could get BikeBrain to auto sync to Strava you'd be golden and just run BikeBrain. That seems like a no-brainer unless Strava views them as a competitor. Strava does auto sync from all major bike units (garmin, wahoo, lezyne, polar, etc.)

Updates:

I've got Trailforks and Strava linked.
Also I've ordered a cadance and speed sensor bundle, Wahoo RPM Cycling Speed and Cadence Sensor, Bluetooth $70 via Amazon
Speed sensor to improve accuracy of miles, and cadance because .... well I'm a geek and like to know it ...

For now I just start both BikeBrain and Trailforks, like the digital dashboard of BikeBrain and of course the course / map overlay of Trailforks.
