iBike® GPS Bike Computer - Case+Mount+App
The iBike GPS bike computer
delivers superior GPS cycling computer performance at a fraction of the cost of other GPS cycling devices. The iBike GPS provides cycling measurements and maps that are ideal for riding, touring, and commuting while providing the utmost protection for your iPhone.
iBike GPS Case Provides iPhone with Extreme Protection
The iBike GPS comes with a sleek, lightweight case that provides incredible water resistance and shock absorption. A cushioning “sled” holds your iPhone 5/4S/4 safely and securely in the case. Its creative design allows you to remove your iPhone quickly and conveniently from the case whenever you wish.
The iBike Click-Latch system provides audible assurance that your iPhone is safely sealed inside the fully-enclosed protective case.
Dual Mount Handle Bar / Stem Mount Gives Cyclists Flexibility
The iBike GPS comes standard with a Dual Mount. The Dual Mount lets you mount your iBike GPS either on your bike handlebars or your bike stem —whichever is most convenient. The Dual Mount retains the iBike’s exclusive metal bracket and bolt attachment system, so riders won’t have to worry about your iBike GPS case falling off of their bike.
Viewing Flexibility: Portrait OR Landscape setup
Riders can set up their iBike GPS in traditional “portrait” (vertical) mode or in “landscape” mode so that it sits horizontally on the bike.
New iBike GPS app provides easy-to-read, GPS based cycling data
The new iBike GPS app delivers more information than any other bike computer in its class, tracking GPS-based distance, speed, location, elevation, and more on easy-to-read, color-rich displays. Ride data can be uploaded directly to Strava.com from the app. The new iBike GPS app is downloadable from the iTunes app store and is included with purchase of the iBike GPS. The GPS app is localized in nine different languages. Also, you can upload your ride data directly to Strava.
The iBike GPS bike computer is also compatible with any iPhone, GPS-based cycling app.
