“We are extremely excited about the new product launch in the cycling navigation market. The new Cyclo Discover series is not merely a navigation tool, it is your favorite bike-riding partner.” said Steve Chang, President of MiTAC Digital Technology Corporation. “Mio has been in the outdoor recreation market since 2012, we are always focusing on the new ways to improve user’s cycling experience. In the past, our patented Surprise Me feature was designed for short trips. We’ve now created a brand new long-distance solution – NeverMiss, which will notify you when approaching a spot you’ve created via the MioShare cloud service. The new feature provides state-of-the-art functionality for cycling holiday enthusiasts by helping users managing their exclusive routes and downloading the data to a Cyclo Discover device prior to the journey. Let NeverMiss take your self-guided tour to the next level.”
Cyclo Discover, Cyclo Discover Plus – Enjoy the Ride
Utilized with the largest full color screen on the market and touch user interface, the Cyclo Discover series is ideal for bike tours. Mio continues to use its original large-button launcher design by keeping only the basic and necessary functions on the screen. The user can easily choose any function with just a button press.
In addition, its rugged design features upto IPX7 waterproof rating, which means it can be submerged in 1M of water for up to 30 minutes without sustaining damage. Rain or shine, the Cyclo Discover series is always your best riding partner.
Create exclusive bike routes with the following choices:
1) MioShare cloud service – the NeverMiss feature
With MioShare, you are able to store your fitness tracking data, route history and discover travel spots around your route. It also allows you to download routes and enjoy new roads and areas enjoyed by other riders. It is also your one-stop shop to manage your device and download map/software updates and other latest product information.
The new patent pending NeverMiss feature allows the user to plan a long-distance bike tour or hiking route before the journey starts. People can add travelling spots, manage remarks, or even add a weblink to the route. Moreover, NeverMiss will display a notification screen when you approach a planned spot along the route, and the user can scan the corresponding QR code with a smartphone to obtain additional information (Internet access required).
2) The patented Surprise Me feature
Aside from long-distance route planning, Mio’s patented Surprise Me feature is also ideal for making short distance route plans. It offers three different route options between A to A or A to B. Cyclists can choose a different way to discover new inspirations during the ride. It is ideal and easy for anyone who has seen all the routes in their home area, and those who like to be surprised by traveling through an unknown region.
3) Local route planner integration – RouteYou and Komoot
The Cyclo Discover series is also integrated with local route service providers – RouteYou and Komoot. Data can be transferred to the device through direct sync, allowing users to expand tour territory easily.
The Cyclo Discover and Cyclo Discover Plus will soon be available in France, Germany, Benelux and UK through online shops and Cyclo retail stores. For more purchase site detail, please refer to the following:
