    Hi Graeme, 

    Great to hear that you are loving your Beeline! Our aim is to make a new permanent mount for the Beeline for bicycles that you could buy and install on your motorcycle :). In terms of the app it will likely be a change in the settings that will allow you to switch between cycling and motorcycling directions!

    Hope you have many great adventures with it. 

    Cheers,

    Kate

    Hi, just like Graeme I'd like an extra mount to use Beeline Moto on my motorbike and on a bicycle without having to strap the universal mount off and on from one bike to another. A permanent bar clamp mount for on the moto and the option to buy an extra universal strap mount for on the bicycle would be ideal.

    We look forward to the delivery of the beeline moto device!

    Groetjes,

    René

    On this note, I see that the Beeline moto will be slightly bigger with a different mount. Aside from this, will there be any software differences? I see that the app for my Beeline Velo already has the toggle for motorcycle options...

    Hey Peter,

    In answer to your question, there are a few key differences:

    • The Moto will have physical buttons, as opposed to capacitive touch buttons, which are obviously better suited to using on a motorcycle when wearing with gloves.
    • The mounts available for Moto are better suited to motorcycles and will offer more vibration damping that the cycling product strap. The quarter turn quick release mechanism is also more convenient for taking on and off the bike when you park up.
    • The Moto is fully waterproof and dust proof (IP67 rated), whilst the cycling product is IP66.
    • There will be some specific software features unique to the Moto product for motorcycle navigation such as communicating actions at roundabouts, toggling toll roads and motorways off


    You will be able to use the Moto to give you cycling directions. This option can be selected within the app.
