Developed exclusively by Yamaha and available free of charge to every rider – whatever brand of motorcycle or scooter they own – the new MyRide app allows tracking and storing detailed information about every ride.
With the new Yamaha MyRide app, riders can record everything from lean angle, acceleration and speed through to elevation and braking force, making every journey even more rewarding.
We are not quite sure how accurate most of the information will be considering it is only using the sensors on your phone but many will get a kick out of it nonetheless.
Apart from being able to review and analyse their own riding experiences, riders can also share their personal GPS Exchange Format (GPX) files* with other MyRide users.
It is also easy to download other users’ files to see how their rides compare to your own. MyRide additionally enables riders to add pictures to their favourite journeys and share their stories and adventures via social media.
By storing detailed information about riding style and destination, MyRide gives users the power to refine, enhance and improve their riding skills and get more out of every trip.
Riders can keep details of every motorcycle they ride or test – and they are able to check out many new routes by downloading other MyRide users’ GPX files.
You have the bike. Now go get the app! Download the free MyRide app now from the App Store or Google Play.
*GPX is a file format designed to provide GPS data to software applications such as navigators or GPS viewers. It can be used to describe waypoints, tracks, and routes.
