Hi Beeliners!

Thank you so much for all the tweets, comments, posts, photos, videos and product feedback! It’s been a super exciting and slightly manic few weeks here in HQ but we’re thrilled to know that there are already people out there getting around by Beeline.To those who are still waiting, we’re chasing postal systems around the world to make sure you get them soon – don’t panic, you won’t get missed out!
A few product related updates for you:
Android – thanks for those who have reported issues with the Android app, particularly on the Bluetooth pairing which has been a bit problematic on certain devices. Chet and Marc are working their way through those issues and will have a new version out on Monday.

Calibration – thanks to those who have got in touch regarding calibration. On certain bikes the device isn’t fully calibrating, so you end up with the warning symbol on all the time. We’ve zoned in on the problem here and will be sending out a firmware update to solve this problem asap (it may take slightly longer than the Android update, we’ll keep you posted).

Working on the new calibration, with a cancel button (good suggestion Tommy!)

 The main thing is to look out for the updates when they come your way, keep everything up to date, and keep the feedback coming – we’ll keep listening and adapting, so Beeline will get better and better for all of us.

…and keep those pics coming too! Got a photo of the week in you?

Have a great weekend!
Mark

      Works really well other than record of my speed seems off - I'm sure I'm faster than 4.5 mph! Having the same issue with the calibration. Just an idea, but it would be great to have a more retro look for the case - honey leather / brooks style type thing. Lovely product. Lots of fun. Well done guys.

      Got mine this morning. Love the cool packaging magic egg-box style. Found the charging cable :-). Bluetooth pairing (with Android 4.4.2 Sony Xperia Z2 (D6503)) teething problems currently. Good to see you are working on the issue, is there an issue tracker/discussion/info on bluetooth pairing ? (besides https://ridebeeline.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000472649-My-Beeline-isn-t-pairing-with-my-phone - just general info) @ridebeeline backer #2517 Dublin, Ireland. @kickstarter

      I'm waiting for this new calibration process urgently because for now, it's impossible to finish that need.
      So the arrow is always pointing a wrong direction.
      Thanks +++

      Nice I'm in this case with always the magnet sign on so that's a good news but could you add the speed and the distance that would be awesome!

      I've been wondering since your first announcement...how well would this work on a motorcycle? I backed you just to get updates, hoping that it'd still be effective at freeway speed.
