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.
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
Not sure why this app has such a low rating. I just bought a 2020 790 adventure and took it on a 6,000 mile ride and this app worked flawlessly. I had zero issues with the app and the navigation is nice and recalculates. The only thing I would say is the nav is Somewhat slow by 40ft. Not an issue when you know how to read traffic signs though. The app works like it should. 4/5 stars.
Own 4 KTM bikes. One won’t pair at all. No option to creat routes. Downloading and updating maps is next to impossible. This app should be free and it should work. This is by far the worst navigation app I have yet the only one that integrates with the bikes display. Either open up the interface or make this thing work correctly. Come one KTM. You’re better than this.
i installed and used the app one time. it was great. but now it says it needs a map update, but won't complete the update, and it won't route me to locations saying there map doesn't know any roads in my area. so basically the software does not work. please update your software, the interface is great when it works correctly!
From day 1 I had zero problems with this app. otter than figuring out how it works, user errors and experience. It works perfect for me and I find no need to use other nav. apps like Google Maps or Waze. Connection to my iPhone 11 is automatic and if you mount your phone to your handlebar you can see the map directional guidance on the phone with turn-by-turn guidance on your KTM display, very cool and precise. Unlike other reviewers, I don’t experience any lag time issues with turns. If you have a weak cellular connection or older iPhone with Bluetooth 3 then it might be due to that vs the app. My iPhone 11 works great. This app also lets you download maps so you can navigate off-line, great for rural areas and I bet it will help with anyone experiencing lag time issues. I have not tried the voice nav guidance yet. The only reason I gave this app a 4 star vs 5 is because I believe KTM should not charge a fee to download it, especially after buying one of their new motorcycles. It’s still worth the $8 and I’m glad I have it.
The is displaying the incoming calls, battery and music but can’t be used for navigation to show the turn by turn on the bike’s screen, I paid $7 to download and install because of navigating but later on I realized that it’s not working for my bike which is disappointed me and I regret that I spend $7 for nothing, I hope they allow my naked as well to benefit from the app completely 😛
Brand new duke 390 2019. It will not work and connect to phone after trying everything possible. I wish I wouldn’t have wasted my money on this crap and read the reviews. It’s even more sad that KTM hasn’t done a single thing about this since it was launch.
2020 KTM 790 R, iPhone X, Sena 20S Evo. Zero problems with downloads, pairing bike, iPhone, and Sena. Shut everything off and relaunched three times without issue. Have used the mapping feature but have not planned and followed a route as yet. Will adjust rating if needed after further testing, but initial review stands at five stars based on early experience.
I have a 2019 390 Duke and was reading up about the KTM My Ride feature on the internet. Looked some things up about it and seemed like a nice tool to add to the bike. So I got on the App Store to purchase it and saw a lot of negative reviews. I typically do t purchase something that has that many negative reviews but I was really excited about my new motorcycle purchase and wanted to give it a try. Interface seems fine and simplistic, seems easy to use, but there is one small problem, the app doesn’t recognize my bike at all. My phone connects just fine I can change song tracks, answer phone calls, and use the TFT display to navigate simple things. This was a huge let down for 8 bucks for what is essentially just a worse version of google maps from what I have been reading. KTM please fix this.
If you own 390 Duke or 790 Duke, this app will not connect with your bike! For some reason KTM thinks that navigation is for off-road only. Go figure!
