Fall detection (iOS)
The fall detection for our iOS app makes your ride with Bikemap even safer. Using the built-in sensors of your device, we try to detect when you have fallen with your bike. After Bikemap detects your fall, you have a few seconds to press a button on your device that marks you as safe. If this button is not pressed after the fall, we assume that you have had a severe fall and cannot move. In such a case, an alarm will automatically be activated to alert others to your presence.
Note: This feature only works if your device is mounted on your bike (e.g. on the handlebars).
Activate/deactivate fall detection
As a Bikemap Premium member you can enable or disable fall detection at any time during navigation or while recording a ride. Just press the corresponding button at the bottom of the display.
Note: The fall detection is an experimental function, i.e. it is still under development. Therefore it can happen that not all falls are detected. Please ride carefully!
