More Freedom. More Fun. More Safety.
Use your apps on your bike.
Motorcycle connectivity enabled by mySPIN is the perfect solution for fabulous tours, enabling riders to share their favorite sections of the route with fellow bikers. Once the smartphone has been connected to the motorcycle, the bike’s display as well as the control knobs and buttons on the handlebars can be used to access data on the phone, like contacts, calendars, and favorite apps. It is then possible, for example, to use apps for sharing tours and benefit from the traffic information provided by navigation apps to avoid congestion.
During system development, we paid particular attention to road safety and the avoidance of rider distraction. With mySPIN, apps are pared down to show the rider only the most essential information on the motorcycle’s display. Inter-app communication makes it easier, for instance, to enter navigation destinations thanks to direct access to the contacts stored on the phone. What is more, being a cross-platform solution, it makes no difference to mySPIN whether the rider is using an Android or iOS smartphone. Learn more...
Thanks to the connection to the vehicle’s data as well as to the cloud, the vehicle manufacturer can collect and analyze specific data about its motorcycles and can choose to make this information available to the rider. This would allow, for instance, the rider to be informed early on about a fuel station up ahead if the fuel level in the tank is getting low. If the vehicle manufacturer wants to maintain a close relationship with its customers or expand its service options, it can also use mySPIN to establish a direct channel of communication with its customers. This can be used, for example, to inform customers about special offers provided by dealerships.
