RFLKT bike computers from Wahoo Fitness can now be paired with the Ride with GPS app. This adds turn-by-turn directions from a smartphone to a rider’s handlebars.
The Ride with GPS app allows cyclists to map their route along bike paths, streets and trails using an online route planner. The app requires a paid-for membership. Those who already own a RFLKT ocomputer and anyone who purchases a new one will be given a free one-month membership.
The RFLKT wirelessly receives app data and ride info from the cyclists’ smartphone (iPhone 4S or Android 4.3 and newer) via Bluetooth Smart. Equipped with control buttons, cyclists can operate apps, toggle between screens, start/stop intervals and control smartphone functionality such as music playback all from the RFLKT, while their smartphone remains in a jersey pocket. RFLKT’s fully customizable screen allows users to decide which app data is most important to see.
The RFLKT+ has all of the same features as the RFLKT but connects wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ Bridge and allows cyclists to connect to all of their ANT+ sensors, regardless of brand. The RFLKT+ also provides elevation data via its built-in barometric altimeter.
