MyKROSS application was created with the cyclists in mind who travel a dozen, several dozen or even a few hundred kilometers a month. It’s an application for people who are looking for reliable information about their bike, how to take care of its condition, and above all, who want to become an inspiration for others by participating in the process of creating the Public Route Map.
Thanks to the NFC sticker placed on the frame of the KROSS bike, the application will quickly add it to the list of bikes. However, each User, who has a bike from a different manufacturer, has the option of adding it manually in the application. If you have more than one bike, you can add another one to the list in the same way.
This is one of the basic functions of the myKROSS application. The computer that records ride parameters informs the cyclist on an ongoing basis about the distance covered, speed and time. Additionally, during the ride, you can observe the track of your route on the map. After its completion, the route track with all recorded parameters is saved in the “My Routes” list.
