New features for Nyon and eBike Connect (04/2022)
We are getting the new season underway with numerous updates for Nyon and eBike Connect. The update is planned for the beginning of April. In the future, you'll be able to set personal fitness goals in Nyon, navigate with new display options, and track your own CO2 emissions compared to your car.
There are also new features for Apple Health and Google Fit users: Using eBike Connect, they can now also save fitness and driving data in the Apple Health and Google Fit health apps.
All updates at a glance
- Map view for search results: Find points of interest (POI) with your Nyon - switch from list view to map view to see the location of a POI on the map. Start navigating to the POI of your choice by selecting it in the map view. Tap the blue icon to switch between the two views.
- Autozoom: If you approach an intersection and reduce your speed, the map view on your Nyon changes automatically to show you a detailed view of your surroundings. The speed-dependent automatic map zoom is available in 2D map mode. Activate the option under "Map settings".
- Plan multiple stops: In the eBike Connect online portal, you can plan your tours including other stops - select up to eight from the list of POIs or add further destinations. These multiple destinations, are now displayed on your Nyon during navigation. Nyon signals you with a short tone when you have reached a destination. During the ride, you have the flexibility to simply skip a planned stop - Nyon will take you to the next destination. Please note that you can only plan your tours with multiple stops in the eBike Connect online portal.
- Track fitness goals: This new feature allows you to set personal goals and track them directly on Nyon. How many calories do you want to burn this week? How much distance do you want to cover this month, and in how much time? How much altitude do you want to conquer this year? - By tapping on the goals screen, you can switch between the different views to track your progress live. You can set your desired values in the settings under Tile settings > Screens & tiles > Goals. Optionally, you can also access the settings via the cogwheel icon in the tile.
Extension of the savings screen: You can now track how many CO2 emissions you can save with your eBike compared to trips by car. By tapping on the savings screen, you can switch between the two views: Money or CO2 savings.
- Automatic display brightness: You can either set the brightness of your Nyon display manually or leave this task to the integrated ambient light sensor. This automatically adjusts the screen brightness to the respective lighting conditions. In addition, you can determine the intensity of the brightness control in automatic mode - if your eyes are sensitive to bright light, move the slider to the minus range. If you need more brightness, move the slider to the right. Regardless of the setting you make, the display brightness is still controlled automatically - but it takes your personal preference into account.
- Menu structure: A clearer menu structure provides a quick overview. We have added direct access to the settings where it makes sense.
Note: After installing this update, your current maps will be deleted and will need to be re-downloaded.
- Help Center: Get help fast! In the Help Center you will find tips and answers to the most important questions. All information from the Help Center can now also be found directly in your eBike Connect app under "More" > "Help Center".
