Group Ride Is Officially In The ONEWHEEL APP!



  • Great work @Future-Motion! - Time to grow some local OW communities......

    Video Link -o-



  • Totally unimpressed. While this might be something some folks want, if you look through this category, there have been a TON of app requests that have been totally ignored by @Future-Motion and, AFAIK, this isn't one of them. They keep ignoring their existing customers, but whatever, I guess I've gotten used to it.



  • @OneDan my take is.... we got an update that adds some value. I really do like the community focus aspect of group rides and the ability to poll times that work Best for a group.

    Small steps hopefully.....



  • @LidPhones Yeah, just sad that with the effort it took to add this pretty major feature, they could easily have thrown in some of the little requests that would take like 2 lines of code!



  • @OneDan I agree and maybe soon they can add some feature and function updates for the XR & Pint.... the code to edit ride and function likely is a bit more to test and validate.... so they released a community feature instead...



  • LOL @OneDan pretty much agree with your sentiments. The App is still basically a total wash for me.



  • Absolutely horrible update, the app won't connect to my board unless I turn the privacy destroying, battery wasting GPS on. No thanks! I'd like my phone not to needlessly waste battery when I am not using a function which requires GPS access.



  • I (as well as many others) have been asking for an alarm at a user set speed. A very simple request, since they already do alarms for other reasons. I first requested this almost 2.5 years ago when I nosedived at 21 mph. Since then, I use my watch connected to the app on my phone so at least I can see my speed, distance, and battery status at a glance. But, like @a_onekatie says above, all of this is moot if the bluetooth won't even connect!

    Agree with this. Location sevices should not be mandatory to use the other features in the App. ☹

    Should be a check for using the group ride or rides function only. Daily commuters (the high mileage riders) are not interested in location and now have to toggle location services just to connect. 🤯

  • @biell not sure whats going on there. The 15 May update was the one that added the Location Services requirement.

    If you have found a way around would love to know how. Currently i turn it on, open the App, then turn GPS off again. Ive still got the shits over this 'enhancement'.

    So, I just rebooted my phone and it turns out that FM didn't fix this, but I did find a work around. Shucks, I was hoping they were doing the right thing.

    I have "Location Faker" installed and even though it was disabled, it looks like enough of the service was running that the app thought I had my GPS on.
