    Hi,

    Despite Polar's small updates in v4 of Polar Precision Performance I still find this piece of
    software is lacking in all sorts of ways (as anyone who's used it would know). The S710 is such a
    great HRM but it's let down by the software. I was wondering if there are any programs which will do
    a better job? I looked at Ciclosport's offering but it has fewer features than Polar's. I'd happily
    spend time writing code to convert .HRM to another format if it had advantages.

  2. That's funny, I just wrote code to convert Powertap files so you can use them with the
    Polar software.

    I like the Polar software, but think the monitor is lame, with its clunky profile and +/- 10% (if
    you're lucky) power measurement.

    Since you sound like you have a clue. Here's a couple of software packages that will give you the
    insight to make this stuff work. Although they are linux specific sites, (doesn't everyone run
    linux?) you may find a wealth of information to code something to your liking. Better yet, it could
    give you a reason to try some good software. :)

    Velocipede 4.5.0 can also import data from the S-170. Other monitors will be supported in the
    future. http://spiderman.novit.no/dahls/Velo/

    I'm in the process of writing some software to display the ride data collected from the Cateye
    MSC3DX computer. This will be extended to other computers if I can get hold of their download files.

    I'm writing this primarily to overcome a limition of the Cateye software that does not allow various
    rides to be superimposed over each other. In my view, this provides a very simple way of comparing
    rides at-a-glance. You can visually see where you where better.

    Long term, it should be possible to show various virtual rides such as the best possible ride based
    upon fastest split times (point A to B).

    The software is still in development, but is in a 'useable' state. I'm happy to provide further
    details and a screen shot can be see here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/karl.wyer/HRM-Software.png
    This shows two rides superimposed over each other with HR, Velocity and Cadence graphs.
