Racing myself: A feature request

Apr 13, 2009 by Joseph Reeves

I'm due a proper update soon, but here's an idea I just had.

Feature request for any Openmoko GPS application: Record a journey and race against it at a later date. Peter Reed describes the application on his GPS here. TangoGPS would seem to be a good candidate for this. Or...

How about forking gvSIG into a dedicated cycle computer application? Find some nice maps; produce something a bit like this, but with more a feel of this.


I like the idea. Actually there are a lot more things I could/would implement in order to turn it into a sports companion. However, the Neo is unusable outdoors and nobody really likes to fix his bike computer with scotch tape because there is no bike holder available...

However, if there are enough people, we could substitute the display with a transflective (and slightly bigger) one.

Probably OA is interested in this too?

That's the sort of thing that could get you into trouble. Particularly if your cycle looks like this... :D

Thanks for the link. I've added another suggestion here.
