Red face Suggest a biking app for Android (please)?

Hey, so I've got my shiny new DIY cell phone holder on my bike, and I need a good biking app to go with it. So far I've been using OruxMaps, because it is so jam packed with features. But the maps it uses are very low-contrast, and hard to see in full daylight. It does have a nice trip computer though, where you can arrange 12 different values (speed, altitude, distance, climb rate, slope %, etc...) in moveable white squares with black text, nice high contrast and easy to see, but only 2 of the squares are big, the other 10 are too small to really see.

So if anyone can suggest a nice high-contrast map to use (doesn't have to be an app, any openstreetmap or other online map can be loaded into OruxMaps), or any good Biking app/trip computer app, I'd love to try them out to see how they compare!

Do you have any leads from the other four Android app threads on page one of this forum?
