If there’s one thing a bike needs, it’s a place to put your phone. Well, Live Rider have got it covered, with the first wireless Cycling Computer and wireless mounting system for iPhone and iPod touch.
Using 2.4 GHz wireless technology from New Potato, a sensor unit is mounted on the frame near the rear wheel. This then measures bike speed and transmits it to the receiving unit attached to the connection for your iPhone.
Your iPhone is the cradled in a sleep and aerodynamic shock-absorbing case, which is then mounted on your handlebar. The casing protects against vibrations and debris and is easily accessible by the rider.
The program LiveRider, provides hi-res features as well as a GPS tracking system and accelerometer features to track levels of inclination. All of this information collected from your bike ride is then filed within the program, which can then be sent in a text message, viewed graphically or emailed to fellow riders.
iworldaustralia.com.au provides various video tutorials on the use of LiveRider, as well as stores which stock the program. Visit the website for more information as well as many other appcessories.
