For all you Android users, we have great news. The makers of the Neutrino Power Distribution block have come out with a free update to the Cockpit Controller app that will allow you to configure any combination of Neutrino Black Box circuits to automatically turn on (or off) based on ambient temperature. This update is available now on the Google Play site.

What this means is that you can now set your heated grips, gloves, liner, seat…whatever, automatically turn on when the temp drops to a level that you decide. Not only that, but can also specify the percent on (how hot) you want each item to be when turned on. Since this is individually set for each circuit, each item can deploy at different temps and with different heat settings.
You can also use this functionality to do things like turn an item off based on ambient temp. This might be useful if you go off roading with your truck/car and use a little refrigerator. Now, when the ambient temp drops below, say 70 degrees, the fridge can automatically shut down.
This is just the start of what will be a number of cool features that will be added to the Neutrino Black Box over time, and you can see it in action at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MTmbcBtuqY.
For all you iOS users out there, this update will also be available for Apple devices in a month or so.

Sena Releases Software Version 5.0

Sena Technologies keeps on keeping on with the innovations. Version 5.0 software adds a lot of features highlighted here. The update can be downloaded here . More information can be found here.

  • Universal Intercom – This feature allows a Sena headset to pair to another brand’s Bluetooth. The caveat is the other      headset thinks that the Sena is a phone not an intercom. So you cannot daisy chain a SMH10 into another brand’s intercom conference, but you can daisy chain another brand into a SMH10 conference. (See image below)
  • Advanced Noise Control – Improved wind and engine noise reduction.
  • Sidetone – Now you can hear yourself talk similar to a Goldwing or Harley Davidson intercom (or one of the old school phones that plugs into the wall) This can be disabled in the configuration menu for those who do not want it.
  • Ultra HD Voice Recording – This is the software patch so the SMH10 will work with the soon to be released GoPro backpack and  Sena Prism helmet cam.

Currently the update is available for the SMH10 only, however other products will receive a similar update next month.

With the increase in portable devices that use USB power to charge, sometimes finding an easy way to charge them on your bike can be challenging. Well, thanks to the folks at Powerlet, that problem just became less of an issue with their new weatherproof USB power socket that will plug right into a Powerlet / BMW style plug so you can charge/power your mobile electronics.

Powerlet has just released their Powerlet to Dual USB 2.1A Adapter, the PAC-069 .

With this solution you can convert a Powerlet socket (also found on BMW motorcycles and many european bikes) into 2 USB Type A Connectors. Provides 2.1 Amp charging ports with weather proof cover.

The waterproof unit has a low profile design that is glove friendly and allows for fast charging of multiple devices. Works great with tablets and smartphones (iPad, Android, Galaxy, others), MP3s, and GPS.

We were very excited to find out that SPOT Satellite Trackers will be getting an update very soon in the form of the SPOT Gen3. This is NOT intended to replace SPOT 2 or even the Spot Connect, but to provide a great compliment to the Gen2 in the SPOT Family of products with an all new design and most of the key features that our customers have been asking you all for.

We’re most excited about 2 features that will make a great tool for riders even better. The first feature is the ability to do away with battery replacement thanks to the addition of USB Power availablity. Next is the motion sensing feature that turns on the tracking when you are moving, and turns it off when you’ve stopped moving for a perioud of time.

There are even more great features getting rolled out with the Gen3 and we’ve listed them below.

Enhanced Services ONLY available with SPOT Gen3:

SPOT Gen3‘s customised tracking features take your SPOT experience to the next level. Only with SPOT Gen3, is tracking motion-activated regardless of the level of tracking you choose (Basic, Unlimited or Extreme). A vibration sensor tells your SPOT to send track updates when you are moving and to stop when you do. This is a great new battery-saving feature!

New Tracking Options:

Unlimited Tracking: Set it and forget it. Pre-set your SPOT Gen3 to send tracks at the speed of your adventures. Change your tracks to send every 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes. SPOT Gen3 will send tracks at your chosen rate for as long as your device is turned on and moving (no need to re-set after 24 hours). Tracking doesn’t stop until you do.

With a clear view of the sky and a single set of Lithium 8x batteries, the following battery life can be expected (assuming ~9hrs of constant movement per day):

  • 2.5min Interval: 20 days
  • 5.0min Interval: 25 days
  • 10min Interval: 45 days
  • 30min Interval: 50 days

Extreme Tracking: Get all of the great features of Unlimited Tracking, but with the added ability to vary your track rate down to every 2 ½ minutes. Don’t miss a step with increased track rates!

Features

  • Compact and light weight; Weighing only 3.2 oz. (with batteries), it packs easily for traveling.
  • Long Battery Life: choose from Lithium or rechargeable batteries; or line-power the unit through its USB port.
  • New Tracking Options: now you can choose the rate of tracking that suits your adventure (2 ½, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes).
  • Motion Activated Tracking: now your SPOT knows when you’re moving and when you stop to make camp. When SPOT Gen3 senses you’ve stopped for an extended period of time it will stop sending track messages until you start moving again.
  • New Contoured Shape: the new design allows you to easily attach your SPOT to your bag, boat or vehicle allowing SPOT to go wherever you do

Patience is a virtue, at least that’s what I’ve always been told.

They’ve been a long time coming and this week our first shipment of the Contour Roam2 camera’s finally arrived.

The Roam2 has most of the same great features as the original roam but it adds 60 fps frame rate when shooting at 720p.

With Contour’s exclusive Instant-on record, and integrated mount, the Roam2 is one of the easiest cameras on the market to use.
