Mitec Europe, the company behind Mio has announced a V4 software upgrade that will see all Cyclo units gain wireless Shimano Di2 support, indoor trainer support with track resistance, music control, call and text message alerts and the ability to answer incoming calls.
Rudy Bouwmeester, PR manager at Shimano Europe said: "The Mio Cyclo 305, 315 and 505 are able to make an ANT+ connection to Shimano’s electronic shifting system through the wireless Di2 unit (SM-EWW01). This allows riders to monitor on screen their Di2 gear positions (front and rear), and the Di2 battery life. We are very pleased with the compatibility with Mio Cyclo, because we believe this further increases the benefits of using a Shimano Di2 wireless unit, by offering even more ease of use."
“We are very proud of the V4 software,” added Iwan van Hende, product director fitness and outdoor for MiTAC Europe.
“It provides a lot of new, state of the art functionalities, which are essential to the modern way of life. People expect to be connected all the time, even while enjoying their free time. We are the first to offer so many practical features into the market, such as text message alerts, trainer resistance, music control and Shimano Di2 gear control. We are always looking for new ways to improve the cycling experience, and these new features do just that. Our users will be very pleased to discover the multitude of extra connectivity and safety features, right there at their fingertips. And the best thing about it: it is all free.”
The V4 software is now available for free download for Windows. Mio Cyclo users can update their device via Mioshare, the desktop application for the Mio Cyclo series.
