    I'm wondering what apps you currently use with your Android phones to help log your cycling workouts and routes.

    Also, are you using any heart rate monitors integrated? Specifically the Zephyr HxM?

    I'm also looking for an options for a cadence monitor, over blue tooth specifically. I could have sworn I found one at one point, but now I can't find it any more.

    I currently use Endomondo to log my workouts, but without any HRM integration. I've used CardioTrainer in the past as well but prefer Endomondo for the detailed information. I'm going to look at SportsTracker in more detail once I know more about HRM integration with the Android platform.

    Wondering what else people have experience with out there.

    I'm looking for options that would effectively give me the same thing as this: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=160&pID=36728

    But where I don't have to go out and purchase and outfit my bike with an additional piece of equipment such as this. I also much prefer the idea of keeping all of my data in one location, as well as keeping my music here too.

    I guess I only use My Tracks from Google. My workout hasn't become intensive enough for heart monitoring.

    Endomondo is working on a version of their software that will communicate with the Zephyr HxM. I know this because I contacted them and asked them about it and they actually sent me a beta version of the software. You should contact them through the website and offer to beta test for them and they should hook you up with the software developer who should hook you up with the beta version.

    Nice! I will have to do this for sure. I'm about to purchase the HxM. I'm sure they don't have a lot of folks testing with a Hero.

    Do you know if the current version of the Endomondo client supports Zephyr HxM? I am also looking for a HRM to use with my HTC Hero (and Endomondo) and the Zephyr HxM poppep up from Google search.
