Wanted: beta testers! And a sneak peek at the carry case

Hi backers, 

All pistons are firing here at Beeline HQ and we thought that we should get in touch with a little update! 


Beta testing

Beeline Moto testing is going well! We will be conducting some final beta tests over the next few weeks and would love to get some of you involved. 

The criteria are quite specific - to allow us to get the most out of the testing period - but, if you can answer 'yes' to all of these questions, please get in touch with Kate (kate@beeline.co) as soon as possible

- do you live in the UK, France or Germany? 

- do you have an iPhone?

- do you ride most days? 

- do you have any bar space on your bike to put a Beeline Moto with a Universal Elastic Strap Mount (bars would need to be 20-36mm)? 

- are you around over the next few weeks? And would you be able to give weekly feedback on new things that we ask you to test? 


Carry cases

We were all pretty excited to see the carry case prototypes arrive in the office this week. Here’s a sneak peek:

We’ll be making slight changes, such as making the carabiner clip completely black, but we are happy with how they are looking so far. 


Waterproofing

We’ve also been checking the seals on our prototypes. They’ve been passing with flying colours! 

(Sound on for the video - it's Elton John (a big office favourite))

That’s all for now. As ever, you know where to find us if you have any questions. 

Cheers,

Tom, Mark and the Beeline team

      Hey Beeline, just wondering since I don't have the original device for my bicycle will I be able to use my moto on both my motorbike and bicycle for getting about?

      Could you possibly share the diameter of the unit? I am hoping It's going to fit in my old BMW clock spot on the S fairing.

      Pretty slick progress I must say! Seems like everything falls into it's place.

      Do you guys have a updated Roadmap with the new ETA for the product that you would be willing to share with us?

      Hey everyone, @Andrew has hit the nail on the head! We are just prototyping on one OS at this stage so that we can keep things simple. App will be on both Android and iOS when we launch :). Thanks everyone for the beta testing enthusiasm too. It has been awesome to work through my inbox this morning - love hearing from all of you. Kate

      Andrew Scott... where does the campaign clearly says iOS and Android? Thanks

    7. Andrew Scott on

      The campaign clearly says iOS and Android. No doubt they’re prototyping in iOS so that they can make it perfect for Android.

      Hi,
      why are you asking a beta tester with iPhone only? Do I have assume the product is not supported by android phone?

      Thanks in advance for your answer,
      C

      How does one learn more about the app and how you upload your route? That is what I am most excited about
