Developed by cyclists - for cyclists: The bike mount FINN and the navigation App for Smartphones!
More than 500 bike innovations were tested for functionality, reliability, and sustainability at the international bicycle trade fair EUROBIKE in Friedrichshafen - the best ones of it were awarded with the EUROBIKE Award 2014.
In the category 'bike accessoiries', the winner is FINN. The statement of the jury: "Als funktionell, effizient und leicht überzeugte uns diese zudem auch noch kostengünstige Halterung für Smartphones am Lenker. Da sie kaum Platz wegnimmt, ist sie besonders auch für die Verwendung bei Leihrädern geeignet." (Being functional, efficient, and light, it convinced us also by the affordable mount for Smartphones on the handlebars. As it is space-efficient, it is also great for use with lending bikes.)
The Bike mount FINN incl. bike-Navi-App (Sport-Tiedje Edition) fixes your Smartphone on each bike handlebars in a safe and stable way. The mount, made in Austria, resists everything - being of smart, simple design and made of high-strength silicone.
Real time navigation, bike tours, offline routing, and many more
Another highlight is the navigation App for Smartphones, which is especially designed for needs of cyclists in cities. No matter whether you want to discover the city or get navigated to a certain target: with the bike navi App of BikeCityGuide, you find the most bike friendly route, which prefers bike paths and side roads and avoids busy main streets. In addition, the bike navigation is accompanied by voice messages, which work exactly even for complicated turnings. It makes cycling across the city more comfortable and safer.
The BikeCityGuide Cycle-Navi-App knows many sights in every city, which you can discover on preset city tours. When you prefer more individual onces, you can also easily create your own tours.
Many functions of BikeCityGuide, especially bike navigation and route planning, can also be used without active internet connection. You save roaming costs abroad and the battery lasts longer.
The trade magazine PC Welt is also impressed by the BikeCityGuide App: "Das Zusammenstellen eigener Routen geht schnell von der Hand, das Routing-Profil lässt sich von "sicher" bis "schnell" variieren und die App berücksichtigt auch, ob der Nutzer mit City-Bike, Mountainbike oder Rennrad unterwegs ist. Zu allen Optionen stehen Erklärungen bereit, das Design ist sehenswert." (The creation of own routes is quickly done, the routing profile can be "safely" to "quickly" varied, and the App also considers whether the user is on the road with city-bike, mountain bike or racing bike. Explanations are given for all options, the design is worthwile.)
