Carpe Iter Controller app - Everything about upcoming features

What is coming soon (weeks)

  • input custom maps – you will be able to swap the functions to different “button”
  • custom profiles – you will be able to program your own control “maps” for each app or globally by selecting pre-programmed global commands. E.g. when Google Maps are in view and not all navigation options are required, e.g. media controls can be mapped on individual controller buttons (direct media control – it will not be necessary to go through the HUD). 
  • custom programming interface – use any Android key code on any button (you will be able to make profiles for apps that are not officially supported)  

Coming later, but working on it

It doesn’t make a long list, but it will be a lot nonetheless 😀 

  • Next-gen HUD

What is the next-gen HUD? Thanks for asking! 
Currently the HUD is a shortcut interface to additional functions, such as touch lock, media controls and the like. You can check the current version here

Next-gen HUD is gonna seriously expand the feature set and functions of the HUD and will turn into the headquarters for anything you might need on the bike: 

  • bike electronic dashboard. In the first stage it will be rolled out for BMW GS bikes in conjunction with the BMW Control. In next stage we will implement support for other bikes through a Bluetooth OBD dongle
  • mini-Homescreen providing shortcuts to your favorite apps
  • ODO meter
  • Maps 
  • Standard track-recording
  • “life log” function (track recording always on, but optimized for power consumption and size of the recorded files. On purpose it will not be as precise as recording a track to use for your trips later, but it will give good enough idea about where and when you’ve been to let you track-back your riding ventures.  
  • Import and export of GPX tracks
  • Media control
  • Quick access to most frequently used settings

And of course all that accessible from your handlebar through our controllers.  

As the work progresses, we will be publishing more details. But there is already the first sneak-peek (btw., if you care to something for us, please subscribe to our YouTube channel – just click the subscribe button on the video below ;-)): 

What we're saving for later

Any ideas? Please leave a comment:

  1. This looks like it has huge potential, especially as something that could appeal to the less dedicated off-road riders. Targeting the GS first makes sense as it’s a huge market that typically has a reasonable amount of disposable income, and that tends to put a lot of miles on that are predominantly on road. Media control of an app that can allow you to select playlists and shuffle songs within them would be awesome, as well as being able to flick between apps like Calimoto and an offline map view that allows the user to see what’s around them when simply exploring the location. Google maps is very helpful for being able to get where you want as quickly as possible of course. Very excited to see how this will integrate with the BMW Controller…
    The ‘Life Log’ sounds great too… I wonder if you could incorporate acceleration and deceleration dat in there, along with lean-angle? It’s the only thing that makes the BMW Connected app interesting for me.

  2. Hi,
    So many exciting possibilities. I love a bit of tech that integrates into what’s already there. Never sure why BMW (or other manufacturers) don’t do more of this.
    Things like the new BMW ConnectedRide Navigator are so expensive but ultimately limited in terms of functionality by only allowing their mapping
