This is the supplementary app to our Bluetooth-sensors and USB-chargers „Dynamo Harvester“ and "AppConGT#1". You definitely need one of these sensors to use this app.

What can your smartphone do, mounted at the handle bar, as soon as the power supply problem is solved?
▪ A great looking bike computer with large tachometer display
▪ Support and stimulation for your training and workouts by collecting and displaying fitness data like altitude differences, calories burned, heart pulse, speed and distance
▪ Navigation based upon map data supplied by Apple
▪ Automatic generation of a tour diary

The app makes use of the sensors in your iPhone and the built-in sensors of Dynamo Harvester and AppConGT#1. Additionally a heart pulse sensor (Bluetooth LE) is supported.

Tachometer:
The Dynamo Harvester utilizes the electrical pulses generated by the hub dynamo to evaluate 14 tacho pulses with every turn of the front wheel. As a consequence the speed display of the app is fluid and responds quickly to every of your acceleration and spurts. The big display can be read with a short look.

Barometric altitude sensor:
The built-in sensor of the Dynamo Harvester is used to generate precise and detailed altitude profiles showing even small altitude differences. Do you want to know whether you are so tired or whether the hill is such steep? A look at the inclinometer display tells it.

Start/Stop:
The Dynamo Harvester knows exactly whether your front wheel turns or turns not. Our app makes use of it to start and stop tour recording automatically. This really makes sense: You do not need to touch the app to record your tours. There is even no need for the app to be active at your screen! Never again a tour record is missing or incomplete because you forgot to start recording. This automatic start-stop mechanism also steers GPS tracking. As soon as the bike stops the GPS recording stops, too. This saves power. Never again suffer from the „Battery drained signal“ because you have forgotten to stop GPS recording. Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Pocket Mode:
While riding your bike your smartphone can stay in the pocket. As long as your phone is within the range for Bluetooth of the Dynamo Harvester all of your tours and mileage will be recorded for you. Shopping tour or a short trip to the bakery? All is recorded as well and will be part of your annual mileage.

Navigation:
The map display shows the path taken, your current location and surroundings. If this is not enough: Select the navigation app of your choice. Of course our app continues the tour recording in the background, while your favorite navigation app is in the foreground.

Tour diary:
Every tour is recorded and archived automatically in the tour diary. Use it to browse through your tours of the past and look at the route taken. Or compare the altitude profile or the calories burned of tours.
The most impressive feature of the tour diary is the possibility to look at the sum result of several tours. Filter tours by date, by bike and by geographical region to get results like: „All my tours in Sweden last year“ or „All my tours starting from home this month with my city bike“. Use the diary to self-control your training goals.

Multiple bikes:
Proud owner of road racer, mountain bike and city bike? No problem – automatic recognition of several bicycles goes without saying. And all statistics can be done per bike or in total.

Connection to Apple Health App:
With this option you can let the app export the fitness data of your workouts like distance and burned calories to the Apple Health App. This allows you to get an overall picture of all your daily activities in multiple sport disciplines and of all your everyday activities like climbing stairs.
