The eBike App enables the User to connect his/her compatible mobile end device (e.g. smartphone) with his/her eBike or components installed therein that were manufactured by Brose (Brose eBike Products).
The eBike App is a software application for downloading onto a compatible mobile end device that enables the User to establish a connection between his/her mobile end device and the Brose eBike Products in his/her eBike, to view and manage technical data of these Brose products, and to record and plan rides by providing access to third-party map services.
The eBike App in particular provides the following functionalities:
|1.||Change settings||The User can change the settings of his/her eBike (e.g. the support provided by the motor) via the eBike App.|
|2.||Retrieving technical information about the eBike and the Brose products installed in it||The User can call up technical data such as battery status and remaining range via the eBike App.|
|3.||Estimate of calorie loss||Taking into account the driver's performance, the calorie loss is estimated with the help of an algorithm. It should be noted that the estimate may not reflect the User's actual calorie loss, as parameters such as the User’s height, weight and gender are not collected for data minimization reasons.|
|4.||Capture trips||Access to third-party mapping services (Strava and komoot) allows a User to record and store the distances he/she travels.|
|5.||Navigation function||By accessing the navigation function of a third-party provider (Mapbox), the User can determine navigation directions and have his/her own position shown at any time (subject to connectivity).|
