    I have been trying to get route tracking working for a day or two and have now discovered a crucial step which you have not mentioned. When you turn tracking on the top portion of the screen screen shows your location In the bottom section there is a time elapsed counter, as well as counters for Calories, distance and average speed, and below those a red dot which is the “start” button and a grey square which is “stop”. For some reason I have been overlooking these and so have failed to turn the app “ON”

    How do I add time spent on an exercise bike?

    my app has suddenly stopped showing the distance and number of steps taken in walking, instead showing just a calories graph and the time taken on the walk. When it shows past history it is the same-time and calories. Previously it did not display the time taken as such. I would rather have the steps and distance.
