It would be great to have Strava segments in Locus. Segments could be downloaded online realtime or once before ride by selecting area.

I would like to implement in Garmin.

Cyclist rides, and during the movement get message: "you approach the Strava segment"

I had the same idea yesterday. I'm not sure whether Locus team member knows what you mean. An example: https://www.strava.com/segments/644313 I'd like to get notification about:

lenght, best time (with name?), elevation


The segment shows one problem as well. For some stupid reason, someone has created duplicated KOMs (hill is divided into two). So you start two KOMs under the hill :-/

This would bring the app to whole new level for road cyclists.

It would be even better if there would be a "live display" during the strata segment like:

Wishes: when approaching the beginning of the segment, speak (voice output on Bluetooth headsets) "you approach the Strava segment" and Your place in the results table (is the current segment) and The recommended speed for improving the result.

To do this, you will need to import data from Strat, such as:

  • My place in the table of results for this segment;
  • Speed and time of my prior result.


Make the necessary speed calculation in order to improve the result and pronounce it.

If this calculation is too complicated, then say the following result in the table (time and speed).


If you implement this functionality, it will serve as an excellent motivation for those who actively ride or train. Thanks.

A few years ago I made this: https://github.com/liskin/strava-segments-kml and it seems it still works. It's just a way to view segments and possibly save them as tracks, nothing fancy like Live Segments, but still, if you want to know where exactly a segment starts/ends, it's nice.
