BikeCityGuide

The BikeCityGuide app (for iPhone and Android) was successfully launched for five cities in Austria back in 2012. Meanwhile, this offer has been extended to over 35 cities in seven countries and its range of products enhanced. The development of the algorithm and app was honoured with the European Satellite Navigation Award for Austria. BikeCityGuide’s bicycle satnav is accompanied by voice messages that never fail to deliver exact information, even when it comes to complicated turns. That makes cycling in the city even more comfortable and safer. Many of BikeCityGuide’s functions – especially bicycle navigation and route planning functions – can be used without an active internet connection, thus cutting data roaming charges abroad as well as saving battery power. BikeCityGuide knows most sites of interest in every city that can be explored on preplanned city tours. And those who prefer to leave the beaten track can simply create their own individual route.

One further, particularly successful, development is the Smartphone mount “FINN”, which easily attaches all mobile phones to any handlebar. Its brilliantly simple design made of highly robust silicon is built to withstand all adverse conditions.

Finn also won the 2014 Eurobike Award in the accessories category. The jury said the following about Finn: “we were very impressed by this functional and efficient lightweight mount that offers a low cost solution for attaching smartphones to the handlebar. As it is extremely space-saving, it is also suitable for rented bikes.” Moreover, Finn also won the 2014 Expobici Innovation Award for Best Accessory.
