Turn-by-turn navigation on your bikes dashboard has been introduced for the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S and R (MY 18,19 &20), the KTM 790 ADVENTURE (MY19 &20), the KTM 390 ADVENTURE (MY20) as well as KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT (MY19 & 20) & KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R (MY20) (Owners of 2017 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S & R can also benefit by having the cost-free software upgrade installed and activated at an official KTM dealer.). Connecting a Bluetooth-enabled Smartphone means more than just co-ordinates and directions. Trips and routes can be saved and loaded for repeat use to allow for forward-planning, and an offline mode means a specific map can be downloaded and used without consuming mobile data in roaming. KTM dealers and the network for servicing and assistance come as custom icons on the map. Simply negotiate the ‘pairing’ process to make the phone and the bike ‘talk’ to each other and the information can then be relayed. The App transmits turn-by-turn guidance, the distance to the next navigation point, the street name and the arrival time/distance to the destination. In addition, audio guidance in various languages and offline maps are also available. KTM MY RIDE also allows incoming calls and music, displaying battery life and signal strength. All this data appears on the dash and can be managed with the mode switch, keeping your hands where they belong: on the handlebar.
Why make a gps app for motorcycles and not have the ability up import gps tracks or build custom routes. 2 stars just because the the app does work great for music but the gps side is complete garbage.
Was excited to give this a try. First time out, works ok but has room for improvement. Needs an option to use highways/ toll roads. The default is to use surface streets and this cannot be changed or altered. Also if you decide to find app support- it’s non-existent on their website. Just gives the user an error message saying that page is beyond their reach. If I had to do over, I would save the money and skip the app
Please continue further development. Rider to bike to bluetooth to app control for skipping waypoints on the fly for starters. Useless otherwise. Continues to reroute to "missed" waypoints makes use for even small trips a lost cause. 8th KTM. Please update the app and call me in for updates to the bike's software as well. -SV
This is an awful app. Navigation is just insane, like trying to have me use a frontage road for miles instead of the highway next to it. Everything has to be done very manually on it. Just useless. Also, it’s missing the road names in the directions. While other apps say “turn right on Maple street,” this just says “turn right.”
The app generally works quite well and I don’t have any issues with delays like some users reported. I downloaded the map set for NA it’s 6.5 Gb. Works well. However there are some flaws. There is no landscape mode (please add this!) and the app does not offer the option for keeping the screen on in navigation mode like most other NAV apps. This has to be set on the phone which is inconvenient.
The NAV feature is reserved for the most expensive tier bike and adventure bikes. The NAV software should be available to all.
A lot of negative reviews here, but I’ve not had many negative issues. I do wish there were many more features, and I hope there are other improvements in the future, but i Have mo stability or navigational issues.
It is not easy to find an address in Colombia. The format of the Colombian addresses is not compatible with the app making it impossible to find a location and navigate to it unless you point it on the map. Please review the format or make it available to use Waze maps with the app.
Pay the $7.99 and realize you get nothing special. Tried to download the maps for the USA and get a notice that I don’t have enough memory. While connecting to my bike, nothing special. Won’t play my music- difficult to problem-solve. What a waste of time.
By default , it avoids highways. There is no setting to override it. Ktm dash is awesome. I used to use mobile but now I prefer the dash. Works offline. Needs improvement. For example, uploading a fox file. Planning a ride in the desktop etc
