I just received my CI Control and did some tests. The control does work but not the way it is supposed to work. Using the joystick the app does not pan. The joystick makes the Kurviger map zoom in or out. The 2 buttons are supposed to be used for that but they only close the app.
The build quality of the control looks good so I hope that I am doing something wrong or that it can be fixed by Kurviger or Carpe Iter.
Meanwhile after some ‘tampering’ i got it to work. In the normal mode the CI control device determines the active application and applies the correct settings to itself automatically. If I put the device in the socalled ‘fixed mode’ and the setting on ‘kurviger’ everything works like a charm. Zooming and panning!
So it seems that the interfacing with kurviger is not the problem. The problem seems to be that the control driver does not recognize kurviger as the active application.
I will forward a support request to the Carpe Iter guys.
Bedienst du dann mit dem CarpeIter dein Smartphone während der Fahrt?
Ich will mir irgendwie gar nicht vorstellen aufn Motorrad während der Fahrt mein Smartphone zu bedienen, egal mit was. Außer mit Sprachsteuerung evtl. aber nutze ich nicht.
Yes, but I can’t imagine that with the control unit either.
When I want to do something on the smartphone, I pull over to do it.
It’s interesting that some motorcyclists also operate their smartphones while driving. However, it would not be an option for me.
That’s because you have no remote control
To be serious: If you have remote buttons on the handlebar or something similar (BMW multi controller wheel), it is quite easy to do simple tasks like zooming in/out the map during driving - same way as for example you switch on/off turn idicator.
It is much saver than tapping on a display during riding - you should try it before judging it!
