EB13: O-Synce Adds Handlebar Mounted Bluetooth Smartphone Remote Control, Hints at Strava-Enabled Bluetooth Cycling Computer
O-Synce cycling computers have a new handlebar mounted Bluetooth LE (low energy) smartphone remote control. The unit uses a few small buttons to let you control your music, answer a call or, at launch, toggle and zoom through Magic Maps’ cycling app.
The new collaboration with Magic Maps lets you keep your hands on the bars while offering full control of that brand’s iPhone/Android app. The MM app combines cycling data and GPS maps, and the remote lets you zoom/scroll the map and cycle between it and the ride data screens.
The remote shown above is a wired version that was linked to the computer, not the phone. The actual unit won a Eurobike award and is shown just after the break along with more good news for those of us who don’t put our phones on our bars…
They’re also working on a new faceplate option for the 3T Integra stem, putting their computers out front.
