Woo also still has the problem that you often get no messages/push notifications when buddys have posted a session, f*cking annoying!

Hey Aleks,
Is your app only working with Woo 3.0?

Pretty much, only WOO 3 provide real time jump information.

The app does see and connect to WOO 2s (even though it takes longer time to establish connection), but the only information provided is the WOO's battery level. In the future I plan to remove connection to WOO 2s all together, if I ever find out how to distinguish between Woo 2 and 3 at Bluetooth discovery time. I sent this question to Woo Sports, hopefully they will get back to me on it :D

This firmware update brings a reset option to the WOO. The user can now clean the memory and reset the CPU. However, this should only be done after prior consultation with our customer support, as it wipes out all data.

Next to that we integrated the framework for a number of exciting new features that we will be launching in the coming months. Our beta testers will be notified shortly and requested to test and provide feedback.

I already mentioned what I would like with these new features, but I will say it once more time, in hope they will be part of the new app ! :D

So, I have a a few suggestions (dreams??).
- The videos (Q&A) you made were really good and useful (how to load lines, board position before the jump...). Do you plan to make some new ?
- In your App, could you add the possibility to schedule a session on a specific post (date/hour and let everyone see it and join). I ride in a very low populated area with many spots available. Therefore, I am regularly alone on the water (and learning afterward via Woo App that some riders were just a few km away). I think that (if possible) not riding alone is one of the main security point.
I could see this feature really useful and your app could contribute to rider safety.

Hi Baptiste,

On your 1st question, all I can say is that this summer a few things will come that you will most likely appriciate.
On the 2nd question, we already put the "Mark myself riding" feature in iOS (and Android is in progress). It seems pretty much what you are looking for, just make sure that all your local buddies are following each other and they will be notified.

It's only available for paid members...will this also hold for the "new" features we are all waiting for?

Any expectations you can reveal? Also heard you saying testriders will be testing it out soon? Anywhere we can subscribe to be part of testing (did previous testing as well, not that any of my or anyone elses remarks etc were dealt with)

Anyway we have all be waiting for a looooooong time...would be good to at least know if these new "features" will be for all users or only the select paying members

Some new features coming, but for the moment, only information about the Watch App for Androïd (early June) and on how to build a house on good foundations :D
