Release Notes

Kiox

07/2020: Release Notes for Kiox version 3.0.1.0

New features:

  • Navigation: The new Kiox navigation function is started via the smartphone. The on-board computer is connected via Bluetooth and indicates the planned route on the display as a line showing the route. The view on the display rotates in the direction of movement while riding and Kiox also shows the distance to the destination.
  • Route planning: Routes can be planned with ease in the eBike Connect app or in the online portal. These are then transferred to Kiox via the app. When connected with komoot or Outdooractive, they can discover many more routes nearby.
  • Custom display: Screens and the choice of riding data to be displayed can be easily configured directly on Kiox and thus adapted to your own needs.

Improvements:

  • Award-winning design: The 3.2-inch high-resolution colour display has received the Red Dot Design Award.
  • Optimum readability: The display brightness and backlight automatically adjust to the ambient light. A special coating reduces reflections and fingerprints. You can choose between a dark or light display with maximum contrast.

  • Range information: When a ride is being planned, Nyon shows whether a destination can be reached with the selected motor support. While on the move, Nyon provides an early heads up if a different support mode needs to be selected.
  • Performance comparison: Nyon compares the speed, power and cadence of the current ride with the average values and shows whether your performance is better or worse than the average value. 
  • Lock: The premium 'Lock' function enables motor support to be deactivated by removing the on-board computer, making the pedelec less attractive to thieves. The electronic lock only unlocks again when the same on-board computer is reconnected.
