The beauty with connected devices is that we can always update the software and firmware on your phones and devices to improve your riding experience. We’re constantly working to improve the way SmartHalo works based on your feedback. Here’s what’s new in version 1.4.2 (iOS) and 1.4.0 (Android) of the app, available now on both iOS and Android.
Improved Turn-by-turn animations
We’ve added new patterns to SmartHalo’s light circle which helps it show more sophisticated instructions.
When there are quick turns in succession, SmartHalo will queue the turn signals to make sure you don’t miss the second turn. This helps navigation tremendously, as you are aware of next upcoming turn when they are close to each other. The second turn is the smallest one; once you complete the first turn, the second turn turns into a regular turn.
Roundabouts are pretty common in Europe. It turns out that having a circular interface is pretty handy when needing to display which exit to take. When arriving at a roundabout, SmartHalo simply mimics the roundabout and its multiple exits. Simply take the exit in green!
Improved bluetooth connection
Some users have reported having some funky Bluetooth connectivity between their phones and SmartHalo. We’re continuously working on improving this and this version brings a slew of improvements on this front.
On both iOS and Android, users will see that connections are faster and more reliable than before. Also, disconnections happen way less so you shouldn’t have any issues while riding.
As always, keep giving us feedback so we can continuously improve SmartHalo! We have a pretty cool feature coming for next release, stay tuned.
