It needs to Just Work (TM). While unique features usually tend to grab the headlines about any product (regardless of what it is), more often than not, people’s impressions are shaped by whether things they expect to work work. It might sound obvious, but getting the basics right can be just as, if not more, important than anything else.

Each week, when looking through the list of suggestions everyone has made for new things to add to indieVelo in the release, I always include a few of the little things that make using indieVelo a bit easier. This week’s release (see below for full details) goes all-in on those quality-of-life improvements.

Whether it’s making it easier to find routes or workouts, displaying smoothed or average power data, easier camera control, more options for virtual gearing control, obvious extensions to routes, or any of the other many updates included, they’re all about ensuring it all Just Works, just as you want it to.

If all has gone well, you shouldn’t have to do anything to get the new version, as indieVelo will self-update the next time you start it up. If you find any problems, however, instructions on how to manually update are on the website:

Please note that, depending on when you installed indieVelo, you may see a warning message recommending that you update the installer/launcher to the latest version. If you see this, download it again from, and the update will automatically apply. The entire process typically takes a minute or two, often much less.
