Use weather and equipment data to calculate power track (like OMB pluggin).
So in the soon to be sunset desktop version my most used pluggin is After Import by OMB - primarily used to download detailed weather data and then to perform the power curve estimate - which works for both running and cycling. Currently thi sis then sync'd to the web version. It would be great for those without power meters to be able to capture this estimate?
Agree. I too find the power track added by the OMB plugin very useful and agree it aligns the estimated effort much better with my perception, particularly useful if you log and balance different sports alongside exercise that doesn't merit all the kit - bicycle commutes and long walks. It's also useful for understanding general trends in my cycling performance without the expense of power meters, which are still one of the most expensive add ons for a bike.

This is one feature provided by OMB that I would sorely miss. For me the estimated power curve is the only thing that aligns the effort estimated by SportTracks.mobi with my perception of effort for my bike rides, runs and walks.
Post-workout download of weather conditions has been supported in the app for several years. Here is the article announcing it's release:
Software based power estimation exists on-watch in several forms for Garmin CIQ apps, Suunto, and others.

Would be nice to have a GPS to Power calculation for bike workouts where a powermeter was not used. Similar to Strava feature, with ability enter some minimal personal information and bike info.
