Hello Michael,

as I quickly check, we speak about a special eBike device right? There are no direct plans to connect such specialized hardware, sorry.

Hey Menion,


thanks for your quick reply.

Well is not really special It's very wide spreaded like garmin and polar that you support.

Therefore I'm wondering why it's not support because is leading the eBike scene as Pedelec supplier.

I think a bt connect interface would be just enough to query a few information like speed, heart rate, cadence and transfer the GPS date of the route to Locus.

Hello,

I'm trying to find out if this is really possible and I see that direct connection from Android device is currently used only with their own Android application. I see here a big difference compare to existing POLAR etc support. These various sensors are directly made as a source of data for other apps, so they use the standard BT interface. WIth Bosch Kiox it is different. It is already a final product that consume data from other sensors and I'm not sure that any 3rd party app may simply connect and read it's data.

So sorry, for now, I do not think it will be done in the near future. Thanks for understanding.

Hey Menion,


sorry for my late response.

For clarification: with KIOX you can't navigate.

It's about to connect both apps Locus Map and Bosch eBike Connect to transfer routing (track) information to LocusMap. I.e Komoot does this already.


But It seems you understood it already. Maybe it's needed to get in contact with Bosch.

Cheers
