So my speedo stopped working today.  Has this happened to anyone else?  Interestingly, the needle sits on 0kph when the bike is off.  When it is ON, the needle goes backwards - I am traveling at -5kph! 😏




So, who can recommend an iPhone app - GPS Speedo?  Auto ‘night mode’ would be nice.  Preferably the one that I can use to record the route while I am on the 14 day Queensland tour.  At the end of the day, I want to be able to see the route overlaid on a Google map.  Inclusion of an altimeter, represented in a line graph format on the route map would be a bonus.

You could try the eat sleep ride app or Dr Shifty uses Strava which could work.

its not what you asked but if your speedo is not working , abs light is on and cruise control not working ........... means the abs sensor in the rear caliper is faulty , check for stones or abnormalities in the finned abs wheel , check the face of the sensor

Cheers Scar, appreciate your tip.  At the moment my ABS light is not coming on while riding but I will keep an eye on it.

I had that problem a while back - it would take about 10kms before the speedo kicked in (only happened at random times).  I took it to the shop and they reset something and I have not had the problem since.

Cheers guys.  As the speedo worked today, it may take a few weeks to see what was done worked.

So far, my VCM/ECM (can’t remember which controls the speedo) is getting the same factory tune (latest from 7 months ago) reinstalled.

Also, Jaydn has discovered a broken clutch level sensor.

My scout speedo had to be replaced last year. They did it the day before I left for our trip to Tassie. There have been others with the same problem, but it's a different problem from what V-Twin describes. Ours moved up too fast and didn't drop - I could be doing 120 kph as I changed into 2nd.

In Tassie I had my Bryton Rider 310 gps tracker that I use for cycling and kayaking. It shows the speed (plus other cycling stuff) and records the journey. I mainly upload to Strava, but Bryton also has it's own site. The problem with uploading to Strava is that it messes with the sports performance athletes by showing motorbike speeds against their running or cycling speeds. You've got to turn off certain features like leaderboard etc.

I use an app on my android phone called DigiHUD if I want a gps speedo in the car. There must be lots of them out there. I sometimes use Wayze navigator and it shows speed but not as prominent as DigiHUD.

Thanks Shifty, I appreciate your detailed reply.  DigiHUD does not appear to be available on iOS.  I did like your cycling GPS.  I visited the Bryton website and they only sell Rider 10 - which seems to connect to the iOS app and can see the route and altitude on Google map.  Can I ask you a few questions about your 310 please?

Q1/ Does it have to mounted on the bike with a clear vision of the sky for GPS tracking to work OR can I leave it in my pocket or in a saddlebag?

Q2/ Can you recharge your 310 with a USB cable?  Or need a seperate, dedicated charger?

Q3/ Can it store days and days of route/altitude or do you have to copy the data off the device and format or erase the data to use the next time?  I guess this is a question about the memory space it consumes.

Of course... since you are coming along most of the way, you will probably be able to tell us exactly where we went so maybe I don't need one!  😉

Cheers!

I mount is on the pushy so I can check speed etc but it sits in a pocket of my PFD when kayaking. In Tassie one day I gave it to Jay on the Ducati and it sat in his rear seat pack. As long as there is no metal shielding it it's probably OK.

It charges with a standard USB cable on either a charger or computers, and appears as an external drive to copy files to HD or upload etc.

It can store lots of data. There are two modes, basic and detailed. Detailed takes up more space and that's what I use. I think the difference is how rapidly it does a satellite/speed update so theoretically it's more accurate.

It's easy to copy files to the computer, delete from the tracker, and it's ready to fill up again.

I'll bring it with me and you can check it out.
Cheers, Kim.

There are lots of places in Australia selling the 310, mostly cycle shops. It's about $150. If there is a letter after the 310 it means it has a heart rate monitor or cadence sensor included.

If you go to BrytonSport.com, up the top right there is a triple-line menu. Hit products and you'll find lots of different models.
Cheers, Kim.
