Im all for this looks like they were forward thinking when they designed the tft for the new models. Id like to see a dedicated gps chip rather than use the one on your phone as using gps on your phone kills the battery (my iPhone lasted 1,5 hours using google maps navigation on a recent trip to France).

Id also like a theme designer but thats because I love gadgets...

Ill be getting one for my speed when theyre released.

You should see better battery life with any phone using Triumphs new module, since your phones screen can be turned off. But yea, the USB port under the seat will come in handy on longer trips.

That was with the phone in my pocket and just using Bluetooth to my headset lol. Will be interesting to see how it all works together.

Wow ok haha perhaps your battery is not too well then? My phone lasts about 3-4 hours with Google Maps AND screen on.  :002: And I have a cheap-ish Android.

Anyway, cant wait even less now, my new RS is stored at the dealer until spring, this news somehow made the waiting even worse. On the other hand, the bikes in the right place to get a fast installation.  :001:

I like the idea of connectivity and GPS, etc, but I'm not really sold on the look of the new dash. The design reminds me of bathroom scales, or some kind of kitchen equipment... I prefer the current TFT dash, so I hope we just get a big update to the original design.

Personally I'm glad the GPS needs to be on your phone and is not integrated into the dash somehow. It might be cool to be able to say you're bike has a built in lap timer, but there is a privacy-related flip side to having built in GPS that anyone who likes riding fast should probably consider...

and some pedally ones as well!

New dash? Looks like an upgrade to the existing one. It looks like the bottom line where you can change the mpg/modes/ themes etc, will scroll across to the turn by turn directions

And I don't know what bike they took that photo cos at 9000rpm in 3rd I'm doing a lot more than 53mph.

I think the "bathroom scale" one is for the new Scrambler, the Street will keep the current design.

Hi,
From speaking with my local dealer, Ongar motorcycles, the update will be free and all the bits need for the update are already in the bike.

Hopefully this will just be as simple as dropping the bike in for a plug in and update. But when is anything ever that easy.
