Strava Live Segments on your Mio Cyclo

Mio and Strava have partnered to bring Strava segments to your Cyclo device.

 

Requirements

Compatible Mio Cyclo devices:

  • Cyclo 310
  • Cyclo 315 HC
  • Cyclo 315
  • Cyclo 500
  • Cyclo 505
  • Cyclo 505 HC
  • MioShare account

  • Strava Premium

 

Linking your accounts

  • Go to http://www.mioshare.com/setting/sync

  • Click “Link my Account”

  • Enter your Strava account information

  • Segments should show up on your Cyclo automatically the next time you sync your device with CycloAgent.

 

For more information, please read our uploading from Mio article.

 

Selecting segments

  • All of your starred segments will show up automatically in the Strava Live Segments folder on your device. If you star another one on Strava.com or the mobile app, it will load on your device the next time you sync with CycloAgent. You can star segments almost anywhere you can view them.

  • If you set a goal on a segment, it will load onto your device as well, along with an effort representing your goal time 

 

On your Cyclo device

  • You will be alerted when approaching the start of a segment that’s on your device, and when the segment starts

  • During the segment, you can choose which effort to be compared against. You will always be able to select the KOM/QOM, and you could also have your PR, your goal, or the time from a friend who’s a little faster than you. The default priority is as follows:

    1. Goal (If you have one set for the segment)
    2. Rival (Next person above you that you're following on the leaderboard)
    3. PR
    4. KOM/QOM
  • You will be notified when you complete the segment, and whether you beat the time you were competing against - but Strava.com is the final word.

  • Segment notifications appear automatically, but you can cancel out of the live segment experience as it is happening.
  • On your device, you can also temporarily disable individual segments or the entire live segments experience, or permanently delete some or all segments from your device. This will not affect your starred segments or anything else in your Strava account. 

  

 

A couple things to note:

  • Segments must be activated on device.
  • Device must be in recording mode.
  • Notifications for segments need to be activated on device.
  • You must use a bicycle profile.

 

FAQs 

Why is my segment time different after I upload than it was on my Cyclo?

Mio Cyclo devices use a different algorithm for determining when a user starts and finishes a segment than Strava uses, which can affect the elapsed time reported for the segment. To ensure consistency between users, the times shown on the Cyclo during an activity are preliminary, and the times shown on Strava after uploading are final.

 

Why didn’t one of my starred segments show up while I was riding it?

During a ride, if GPS signal is poor, it can be hard to determine whether a user is on a particular segment or not. After the activity is uploaded, Strava can examine the entire activity and more accurately determine which segments were ridden - including the ones that didn’t show up in real time.
