Start Delay / Countdown Option (for the App Record Button)
Afaik Strava starts recording as soon as I press record. This is so stressful, panicky, pressurizing!
I would like the option of a variable start delay/countdown so that I can put my Strava app running tablet away, go down stairs, go outside, clip in, get up speed, get a few blocks away from my house, or whatever, even when it is raining with out getting my device wet.
This will give me ego-juice due to the improved average speeds, privacy since people will never know where I actually started (I know I can set a privacy area, but in addition to that for additional privacy, e.g. for places other than ones home), and a time to mentally prepare as before a race.
No segments start near my house or place or work, so I would like at least a minute or two before recording sets in. It would be rare that I would want to start immediately on button press, so the start delay could be in settings. Strava then might sound a beep on delayed start.
I am not sure if the delay/countdown it should apply to restarts too. Ideally both would be settable. Then I would set a 2 minute delay on starts, and a 10 second put-my-stuff-away delay on restarts. Not that the 10 seconds are all that important, but I am pretty sure that a competitor has a 10 second start countdown.
