It often happens that we have to get to point B from point A and we have no idea how to do so. Either our destination is in an unfamiliar area, or the roads we usually take cannot be accessed.
We hop on our bikes and start pedaling, all the while fiddling with our smartphones to see the map. This can lead to serious accidents if we do not pay attention to the road. A new innovation aims to help cyclists and give them a device that helps them keep their eyes on the road. The CycleNav Smart Bike Navigator pairs with a smartphone and gives audible instructions.
The speaker of a smartphone is not strong enough to be heard over the traffic of the road. Often, the directions are missed altogether. The CycleNav Smart Bike Navigator, however, takes care of this problem. It is loud enough, making it possible for the biker to hear it in any conditions.
The device is linked to the smartphone by Bluetooth. Before leaving the user simply types in the address and the CycleNav shouts the directions on the road. It also has a large button that can be pressed to repeat missed directions. Flash indicators will also show the user when a direction change is heading his or her way.
What’s more, the CycleNav saves the route you have used. If you ever have need of it, you can simply access it again. Moreover, it takes count of the calories burned during your travels. Both of these can easily be shared on social media platforms.
Riding a bicycle in a crowded city can be dangerous. One must pay attention to the road at all times. The CycleNav not only directs bikers as they travel from one place to another, but also keeps them safe on the road. Would you use this device?
