Sirius XM --- Faction Talk or 80s on 8
and MMR.

My phone also stays in my jersey pocket, I use bluetooth earbuds, MMR will mute my Sirius and tell me what mile I am at.

I've just started riding again but, after some research decided in Cyclemeter. I also have a Cateye 7 wired computer, mainly to keep track of total miles. I pipe tunes thru a BT speaker that sits in a bottle cage. The phone stays in the bag on the back rack.

The Fitbit app. I do not use any music apps when bike riding. Even though I have about 30,000 songs in my iTunes library and love music, I do not feel comfortable shutting off one of my senses when riding and drowning out the ambient sounds around me.

I've been using map my ride. I like seeing the map of where I went and the split times. Total distance seems to be less than what Google maps says, sometimes significantly. I have no idea which one is incorrect.

Samsung Health because it pairs with my sensors and displays real time cadence and speed. Then when done with the ride S Health automatically uploads the data to Strava. You have to set this up in the menu though.
