New bicycle GPS shows the way without distracting user
Finding your way while riding a bike is not always easy – just like driving a car, it requires a simple system that enables users to concentrate on the road while getting directions. This new smart device launched by a Canadian firm helps users navigate and doubles up as a burglar alarm. It is easy to fit onto the handlebars of a bike.
“Cycling in the city is not getting more dangerous. We feel it’s actually getting a bit safer because cycling is now considered as a legitimate way of transportation. But we feel there are still some aspects that are dangerous, notably getting navigation data to know where you’re going. So by having SmartHalo on your bike you get very simple and clear instructions,” says design director Maxime Couturier.
