One of these with two wooden dowels and some duct tape. Vamanos!
There were a multitude of approaches for the roadbook holders, from the simple to the steampunk (Harcus!). Or even the Kinex motor approach...
Built some manual holders...I was thinking for the phones to the bike not a road boak holder. But thanks for pointing it out lol. I have seen the homemade road book holders ans some look great.
Any way back to the app
the app works perfectly with the 3g - I just needed the latest os on the phone...
and scotty upon further reflection I totally feel that the gear I have on my bike, ICO odo and RNS repeater is wonky, poorly made, stoneage bullshit... all due respect to the guys that make it and sell it, I'm sure they are great guys, and in 1994 that was revolutionary I bet, but the gear is so out dated... huge props to you for embracing the future and allowing the app. Bravo!
I'm a vintage kinda guy, so I'm leaving that silly nav tower in place to show the kids how it was in the old days...
Are there any plans to bring this to android? Seems like an old Casio G'zOne Commando would be about perfect for this and would eliminate the need for a rugged case.
Sorry for the late reply...
No Android now, but we have a few things going on that may materialize.
Also - Anyone out there with Arduino coding/debugging experience that would be willing to help me a bit that would be a big help on some of the switch stuff I've been working on.
There were a few bug fixes, most notable is the one that caused the odo to adjust if an alarm came up from another application. We've also adjusted the reset (zeroing) off of the main page, tuned the scaling and speedo and a few other things. You can see the overview below if interested.
We also tweaked it for a few people who wanted to be able to listen to music while riding...done!
That is amazing Phil,
I used it last weekend and it performed excellent. This is a game changer for all the entry level people who want to get the Rally feeling. Amazingly accurate as well and the correction factor is a nice feature.
Could it have and ''auto correct'' feature? i.e. you correct and the software adjusts the correction factor.
Had a 10000 mAh portable battery to power the phone and it worked fine for the whole ride. Too bad the ride was only 4 hours
Will run again this weekend and post photos of the setup
Tested and working fine :)
Please keep the A screen as it is, as close as possible to ICO features, it means... simple and effective! Mainly don't change the screen adding the chance to zero easily!!!
Great work this app, thanks for that
This is just one of the projects we've been working on getting ready to ride...
An Electronic Roadbook?
No more paper taped together on endless rolls, how novel.
The switchgear isn't too bad either :)

What about the feasibility of including a combined roadbook / odo one (vertical / portrait) oriented iPhone?
ODO horizontally across the top, occupying the full width, and say, 1/4 of the top height, and the remainder showing a narrow tulip output. Granted, on the iPhone 5c, the display is only 51mm vs a standard 55mm ....
just a thought, since with existing OEM or Vapour odo units, many users might be hard pressed to mount up too many devices.
Plus, since the only iPad in our family is the one I bought my wife for her anniversary last year, I'll undo all the goodwill I earned ... "You're going all day, leaving me with the kids, AND with no iPAD????"
'Gotta think these things through, bro ... just sayin' :)
Seriously, great innovation - looking forward to seeing how this unfolds.
That is awesome, I had just started working on a digital roadbook for android but it looks lik ya'll saved me a bunch of time!. Can't wait!
Nice preview Phil.
Having seen other digital RB equipment which combines all the info in the world plus countdown to the next turn and a lot of other gzimos, I would like to add one thing. Please do NOT make the screen even smaller by combining lots of info there.
I know that this is for entry level people and they may want all the info in the world, at leat if you do, have the option to remove them and have the full screen as a Roadbook. Also, be aware that that more info you have in onde device, the more your eyes and your brain get to seek the exact location when you look down. More tiring in the long run. iphone solution works wonders sio imo stick with it
Looks really nice Pilo.
