MapmyIndia has launched a GPS tracking device for motorcycles and scooters in India.
Called Rover Bike Tracker, MapmyIndia’s GPS tracker can not only help you determine the location of your two wheeler, but also the speed at which it is traveling at.
There is also built-in locker to store your driving license, RC, insurance and PUC online, with insurance and PUC validity alerts being displayed on the Rover Bike App, when their renewal date is near.
Rover Bike is a motorcycle-tracking device, the latest offering from MapmyIndia. Rover Bike can be fitted on any two-wheeler using a plug-in type installation at any MapmyIndia store. Installation of Rover Bike does not tamper with the warranty of the motorcycle and scooter.
Rover Bike displays maps and location details with the help of a built-in GPS and Internet connectivity. Once the installation on a motorcycle or scooter is complete, customers can access all the data on their smartphones. The maps show turn-by-turn directions to the bike, estimated time of arrival and also location sharing.
The Rover Bike app is free and available across all platforms (iOS, Android and Windows). With the Rover Bike app, customers not only can track the position of their vehicle but also monitor their speeds. One also has the options of viewing pre-recorded information. This device would be a great help for fleet owners, couriers and parents.
