GUZZI MULTIMEDIA PLATFORM LINKS THE BIKES TO THE WORLD
Guzzi Multimedia Platform (GMP) is the innovative app that completes the accessory installed on your Moto Guzzi.
The app establishes a wireless connection between your vehicle and your iPhone transforming it in a sophisticated multifunction on board computer, always on the Net.
The GMP accessory is available on Moto Guzzi Cruiser vehicle range produced from 2015.
The iPhone touch screen panel allows you to choose five parameters among a big number. Speedometer, rpm indicator, engine power and torque, instant and average fuel consumption, average speed, battery voltage, longitudinal acceleration and extended trip computer: these are but a few of the functions available.
The “ECO RIDE” function guide you in order to achieve optimal fuel consumption with an eco-compatibile riding behaviour. An evaluation of your results is diplayed during the trip.
With PMP you can store all the journey data and review them later, on your computer or directly on the app. In the easiest way, your will be able to analyse your trip and riding style thanks to a host of parameters acquired by the app in real time.
GMP boasts a series of contents that are meant to enhance the riding safety.
If fuel is low, the system automatically tells you which petrol stations are closest and guides you to the one you chose on the map*.
GMP automatically stores the last position of the vehicle before the engine is switched off, and gives indications if you forget where you parked it.*
All the information about the Traction Control system activation are replicated on the virtual dashboard for maximum visibility and, while accelerating, the “Grip Warning” function gives you real time information about your driving behavior respect to the road adherence. A dedicated warning icon appears gradually in case of limit conditions.
You can set specific thresholsd for speed, rpm and roll angle. Dedicated warning lights are activated if the limits are excedeed.
With the synergic use of gyroscopes and vehicle signals, your iPhone/iPod becomes an astonishing roll angle estimator in the bends thanks to a proprietary algorithms. (Available from iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4th generation).
GMP will be available for several models of Moto Guzzi Brand: keep in touch!
*with iPhone navigation utilities or third parties apps.
Note: For safety reasons touch screen functions of the app are disabled by default while riding.
For all vehicles: the new version of Guzzi Multimedia Platform app fixes some bugs and improves overall stability. More, "Find My Bike" now registers the position at first data loss, but the app automatically stops only if data are lost for more than one minute. This is to avoid undesired stops.
For vehicles from 2016 (MGX-21, V7III, Cruiser E4):
- improved data connection stability
- new configuration menu for BlueTooth devices (MGX-21)
- new "data logger" configuration (MGX-21)
*WARNING*: this version requires that the device onboard is updated to software version 2.5 o later.
Ratings and Reviews
Good idea. Poor execution.
That's about it.
While the idea of having an additional few parameters is great its execution is truly poor.
-bc of the crashing the trip logging gets divided into several little chunks which makes it a pointless feature
- cumbersome switching through all parameters
- roll/lean feature completely erratic. Going into a left curve sometimes shows a right (positive) value and vice versa..
- the warning are unreadable while riding. Too tiny and not contrasts enough.
- gear display also erratic. Often switches display to N and gears that you are actually not in.
For the 200 bucks this basically costs (without installation costs) this is a pure waste of money at this point.
I would love to see a more streamlined interface and actual gas/fuel readout.
Nice app, needs additional units of measurement
Nice app but even when switched to US units it still uses units of measurement that are not typically used by most U.S. riders.
For example, the app uses kgf instead of g-force, Nm instead of lb-ft, and kW instead of hp. Hopefully a future update will add the more traditional U.S. units of measurements in addition to the others.
The inclusion of the California/Eldorado/Audace owner's manual is a nice touch.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
