Saturday night (March 15) CycleNav became available on the Google Play Store. However, there was a note on the CycleNav page saying that my phone was not compatible.
I emailed Schwinn, and got a prompt reply. CycleNav requires Bluetooth 4 (aka Bluetooth Low Energy or Bluetooth Smart). Unfortunately, my Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket has Bluetooth 3.
According to Schwinn, 99% of phones two years old or newer do have Bluetooth 4. They mentioned that the CycleNav box has a note saying that Bluetooth 4 is required and that a complete list of compatible devices is available at Bluetooth.com. I don't have the box with me at the moment, so I cannot confirm that. However, I went to Bluetooth.com and could not find an easy-to-use list. I got the information for my phone from a cell phone review website.
In any case, save yourself some time and check if your phone has Bluetooth 4 before buying the CycleNav.
