Triumph adds world’s first integrated GoPro to motorbikes, adds turn-by-turn navigation
At the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Triumph unveiled the world’s first Go Pro control system integrated on a motorbike as well as a ‘turn by turn’ navigation system, powered by Google.
With the integrated GoPro control system, the rider can capture every moment on their ride by connecting the system to the display where they can intuitively access and control key GoPro functions through the motorcycle’s instruments and left hand switch cube.
Icons on the screen indicate the status of GoPro camera, including mode, start film, stop film, take photo and battery level. This system is compatible with all GoPro cameras from Hero 5 and Session 5 onwards.
The new Triumph TFT Connectivity System will be rolled out from late Spring 2019, and will not only be available for all new Triumphs fitted with TFT instruments (multi-function colour screen instrument display), but can also be fitted to all Triumphs that already feature the TFT system.
The first for any Triumph motorcycle and the very first Google partnership with a premium motorcycle manufacturer – the Triumph ‘turn-by-turn’ navigation system facilitates navigation through an accessory fitted Bluetooth connectivity module.
Once the rider has selected the route on the ‘MyTriumph’ app and set-off, the instruments present clear graphic turn symbols on the screen using icons, providing precise turn indications.
Route planning and points of interest can also be called up to the rider’s mobile phone screen directly using the ‘MyTriumph’ app. Thanks to the Bluetooth module, the rider can pair their smartphone and Bluetooth headset to the TFT connectivity system, providing full and intuitive control on the move.
Phone functions such as making and receiving calls and SMS message notification can be controlled via the left hand switch cube, as can music track selection and volume control.
The new TFT Connectivity System will be rolled-out from Spring 2019.
