Description

Welcome to the Vanhawks Valour Companion App. This app will allow you to control your Vanhawks Valour, automatically record your ride data, and navigate to your next destination. Use the app to chat with our team and enable the following features.

Automatic Lighting - NEW FEATURE! Set the front and rear lights to your preference and they will come on automatically when it is dark. Calibrate the lights in daylight to work in your environment.

Automatic Sleep Mode - NEW FEATURE! Many riders leave their Vanhawks app open and their bike close by. After a period of inactivity, your Valour will now disconnect automatically and go to sleep. That way, you will be able to reconnect quickly and start riding as soon you need to hit the road.

Navigation - Connect to your bike and enter an address on the map page. Select ‘Use this route’ in the lower left and begin your ride.

Automatic Ride Metrics - Connect to your bike and start riding. When you arrive at your destination, check the app to ensure that your entire ride was recorded.

Please fix! This app isn’t usable with iOS 11. Crashes on login. Needs updating ASAP. No reason to have an app connected bike if the app won’t work.

As a companion to the Vanhawks Valour bike, this app is barely useful. You have no sense that it is learning about your routes or that it is giving you control over the features of the bike. Steer clear of this app and bike—it does not live up to its promise.

What it does right:

Connects to your bike via Bluetooth. You have to shake the bike to turn it on, odd, but it does connect without problems.

Tracks your riding. I can see mileage, avg sped, route and elevation. Strava does this also, but again at least this app managed this functionality well.

Lights. I can turn the front and rear lights on and off via the app. Oddly though I can't set it to auto or make them come on based on sunlight or time of day. Not a big deal but seems like standard functionality for lights wasn't thoroughly thought out. I have to manually configure every time I ride.

What it doesn't do:

You can't change your password in the app.

You can't change your email (it's bound to the email you used to buy the bike).

The Valour has LEDs to give you directions while riding, but it can't compute reroutes and the LEDs freeze up. So setting destinations for directions in the app is useless. I've tried 4 times and it is a useless feature and annoying distraction while riding. It doesn't recognize your turns and if you turn other than when it wants you to it breaks the feature.

The bike promises its anti theft value(Mesh Network)- yet no where in the app is there a feature to track or find your bike. I'm not even sure what to do if the bike is stolen.

"Built in Freedom"
The bike promises how it will reroute your trip (Smart Routes) based on potholes or construction but there is no support of this logic in the app. I would imagine an interface allowing the user to input observations (similar to Waze) would be included. Otherwise I have no reason to believe it's learning or offering optimal suggestions.

Riding: A single ride gets logged as multiple rides depending on how long you are stopped at an intersection. Additionally, my daily 4.6 mile ride never gets logged as that distance-as my phone bounces between wifi and cellular it disconnects the bike tracking.

"Built in Peace of Mind" - currently the haptic feedback for the bike does not work nor is there any control or adjustment for it in the app. This seems to now be a feature that will never be enabled.

If you start a trip in the app for direction assistance, the entire app is locked until you stop the trip. You can't turn lights on or off for example, you have to exit the trip to gain access to the other features.

Overall it's a disappointing product and the app does little to elevate the experience.
