Garmin site is down. It's not our fault...

nice app!! very cool data!
it will be 10/10 with a field selectable option . In the PP is " annoying" the 2 fields with a constant and also they are in different rows... pretty ineficient screen visualization.

thank you!

Yes, an option to reduce to 2 fields for the PowerPod would be awesome.

The new AeroPod CdA app was made by Oleksiy, one of our customers.

Using our original app as a foundation, Oleksiy made the new AeroPod CdA app on his own time, adding the critical feature requested: metric display of wind speed. He also added .FIT recording of CdA/slope/wind data.

Finally, Oleksiy used his own account to get the app into the Garmin ConnectIQ store. This makes download and installation much easier.

We are grateful to Oleksiy for his improvements and his help. Given all that Oleksiy has already done, we don't think it's appropriate to ask him to do even more.

Someday Garmin will issue its CdA profile, and some time after that Garmin and others might add more features.

Looks like an often requested feature by PowerPod users. I'll see what can be done here.

Thank you!
