LiveRider Cycling Mount and App for iPhone

New Potato Technologies today announced the release of LiveRider, the first wireless cycling computer and mounting system for iPhone and iPod touch. LiveRider leverages advanced features of the iPhone and iPod touch to offer real-time performance feedback, GPS feature, data file system, and performance analysis.

LiveRider provides a useful and intuitive tool for every cyclist, from beginners to pros. The sensor unit easily attaches to the bike's rear chainstay to measure wheel speed and pedal cadence, while the cycling computer attachment fits into the iPhone/iPod touch dock connecter. The LiveRider cycling computer automatically pairs with the sensor unit. iPhone/iPod touch fits securely into the protective handlebar-mounted cradle. The free LiveRider app, available in iTunes, equips users with a full-color and highly legible touch screen cycling computer interface.

LiveRider Sensor

LiveRider is pre-programmed with the information needed to easily set up and start riding, including calibration for all standard tire/rim sizes and support for Metric and English units. Data from every cycling session is automatically recorded and saved, allowing users to access session data in graph form. Session data can also be exported by email into a spreadsheet or database. To help gauge performance and keep riders going strong, LiveRider includes a Chase Rider feature to compare the current session to any previously saved cycling session. LiveRider answers the requests of many iPhone-owning cycling enthusiasts, filling a void in the accessory marketplace and extending the utility of the iPhone and iPod touch.
