Android OS supported versions:
Strava requires version 2.2 or above of the Android operating system. Cyanogenmod or other nonstandard Android OS versions are not currently supported.
Supported Android phones:
Most Android devices that have GPS capabilities are supported. However, there are some Android devices with known GPS problems that prevent Strava from recording location information properly. Symptoms include crashing during recording and failure to acquire a GPS signal.
Galaxy Nexus users should be aware that there are some intermittent GPS issues with versions of the Android operating system earlier than 4.0.4.
We have seen issues with some devices when running older versions of the Android operating system. For best GPS performance, these devices should be running version 2.3.3 or above of the Android operating system.
Samsung Galaxy S (and Fascinate) HTC Desire HTC Desire S HTC Desire HD HTC Thunderbolt
Unfortunately, some of these devices will never receive the updated version of the Android operating system, and will always have GPS issues. Please contact your carrier if your device is running an older version of the Android OS to learn if there is a more recent version available for the device.
Some devices have GPS problems with all known versions of Android. The devices below have known GPS issues, and we are not aware of a workaround. Therefore, the Google Play Store (previously known as the Android Marketplace) will not offer the Strava app to people using these: HTC Hero HTC Hero S HTC Droid Eris Nexus One
If you would like to install the Strava app In spite of the known problems with these devices, please contact support to request a manual install file. However, we do not recommend using the app on these devices.
Thanks for your patience as we work through the challenges involved with supporting the large variety of Android hardware and system software.
