Spanish bike maker BH just announced details of their fairly unique solution to keeping track of their range of high end e-bikes. The new Easy Motion GPS module drops into a specially designed slot within the battery compartment to let owners track their e-bike. Via a free smartphone app, users can monitor their bike’s location and manage its connection settings. Check out more details after the break…
The small GPS unit fits inside a secure compartment inside of the locked battery housing and communicates through the cellular data network via a standard SIM card in the built in SIM slot. With the hidden GPS e-bikers can keep track of the bike at any time, and be sure that it is still securely locked up where they left it.
As it interfaces with the e-bike battery, you really never have to worry about the GPS itself running out of juice, and it even can remotely keep you up-to-date on the charge of the e-bike’s battery. Via a smartphone app, you can wake the GPS and put it back to sleep remotely, and even set up how frequently it will report its location.
It’s compatible with almost the entire range of BH e-bikes, from the high-speed Nitro City and other cruisers of the 45km/h Nitro line, to the Revo Scrape 27.5″ and other Revo on and off-road bikes, and even the all-wheel-drive Evo Big Foot Pro and other premium Evo e-bikes.
The new Easy Motion GPS Tracker from BH sells separately from BH’s e-bikes for 170€.
