Thanks to everyone who participated in Kurviger 2.0 (Beta) program!

We’re looking forward for your feedback about the new version and we wish you a nice Kurviger experience! :motorcycle: :racing_car:


I will probably accidentally test the new speed limit on Sunday :slightly_smiling_face:. The colour adjustment of the buttons is already very pleasant.

Sorry, I don’t get it. I payed for the first version. Do I have to pay again for the new version and is my money lost? Cheers! Peter

Thank you for purchasing Kurviger Pro, you can keep using it in the future.
We will maintain and update it for you, so that it runs on the new Androids.

If you need current or future new features, you can upgrade to Kurviger 2.

Subscriptions are the only model that allows mobile applications to survive.
The alternative would be to stop the Kurviger app development…

Do I have to pay for both Kurviger Pro and Kurviger Tourer Subscription?

Thanks for your quick answer. So I can upgrade to Kurviger 2 without paying again? By the way, I love Kurviger ;o)

I’m actually surprised that you held out this long. I have been donating a few times, but I guess this was more of an exception and I understand that you need a proper income to continue working. Plus, 10 bucks a year is really not too much to ask for.

One thing that I don’t understand: Is the “Touring” option on the website and the Pro mode of the app the same? I don’t quite see how I can connect these two.

Kurviger Tourer offers additional features on the website. Kurviger Pro offers additional features for the Android App. Also see our documentation here: Does Kurviger Tourer include the Android App? [Kurviger Knowledgebase]

No, Kurviger Pro still receives updates. If you would like to use the new features, you would have to purchase the Kurviger 2 subscription.

EN: In the Kurviger Documentation there is a page with an overview from Kurviger Website and Apps Kurviger 1.x and 2.x. There you see the features available for free of cost and have to pay.


Sometimes it’s helpful to look in the Kurviger documentaton pages, not only in the forum :slightly_smiling_face:.

DE: In der Kurviger Dokumentation gibt es eine Seite mit einem Ăśberblick zu der Kurviger Webseite und Apps Kurviger 1.x und 2.x. Dort siehst du die verfĂĽgbaren kostenlosen und kostenpflichtigen Features.

OK, get it. You watched how Windows did it. I have to pay the full amount for the new version although I already payed for version 1. You don’t give me the option to pay a small amount for an upgrade to version 2. Look, I don’t mind paying for a good product, but this is a rip off. Goodbye guys! Count me out.

Google Play does not provide such facilities.

Do they sell or service your vehicles anywhere for free?
Why do you expect people to maintain the app for free?

As mentioned above, you can keep using Kurviger 1 Pro.
It will be maintained, so that it runs on the new Androids.

If you do not like the extremely low price of €9.99,
you need to check how much the other apps cost:

Ah, okay, so I would need to pay both. Any chance for some kind of bundle for both? Or is that not possible technically?

I am seriously baffled by this. How much did you pay for Kurviger 1 Pro? 5 Bucks? And how long ago was that? It’s insane what kind of support people expect for this kind of money.


I have already payed and I don’t mind paying for extra services. But I DO mind to have to pay the full price only for some extras. Why don’t you have this option?

I have a service contract for my water boiler/heater. If something is wrong, I only pay for the parts he has to replace. If nothing is wrong, I pay for my “subscription”, nice deal for the dealer. If my dealer would charge me the full price for the service AND for the parts AND for the subscription everytime, I would tell him to go and make love to himself.

Because the Google Play store does not offer this as far as I know. It’s the same with tons of other apps.

It’s the principle. What’s next?

Anyone who likes free software can:

  • Use a free Linux distribution on computer

  • Use the free Google Maps app on Android
    Google is a huge company and pays a lot of developers to maintain Google Maps.

You are obviously missing my point. Make Kurviger 2 available to subscribers to Kurviger 1 for a price that acknowledges the fact that they have already payed for their subscription. That’s how you treat customers.
