Two quick technical news:
Motorcycle Journey Planner
Google has just deprecated its Maps API v2.0 which means the functionality of our motorcycle route planner is somewhat diminished. We are working hard on fixing this and hope to have an updated engine for the start of the riding season.
Apple iOS 7 and Third Party Chargers
Some of our clients reported an issue when charging their iPhone 5 after the iOS 7 upgrade. This is a known issue that Apple has introduced with iOS 7. There are a number of lawsuits that have been filed against Apple as this can be construed as anti-competitive.
A number of workarounds have been published on the web but with varying degrees of success. The one which seems to have worked best so far is to follow Apple’s advice to “reset all settings” on the iPhone (thanks Jonathan S!).
In the meantime, we have gone back to the drawing board and have now just released a new iPhone 5, 5S and 5C cable which fixes this issue. If you have a proof of purchase (order # or picture of your TRI501CON cable), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more details on the modalities of a replacement.
That’s all folks!
