CI Control is the piece of our navigation set, which sets it apart from any other on the market. CI Control is a BLE (BluetoothLowEnergy) programmable controller, which allows you to operate an Android device without the need to touch the screen. On an motorcycle, ATV or a bicycle, its default position is right next to your handlebar grip, which makes it easily accessible without the need to let go off our handlebar. Since the controlling elements are literary at your finger tip, you can have your Android device execute the predefined commands without the need to take your eyes off the road / terrain and once executed, you only need a quick glance at the screen to see the results. This process takes a fragment of the time otherwise required to operate a touch screen. This functionality gets especially handy on a motorcycle, ATV or in other situations, where it is difficult (gloves) or dangerous (riding, cycling) to operate a touchscreen. You can use CI Control either in conjunction with e.g. an Android phone that you might use on your bike for navigation already, or with our CI Pad.
7 programmable buttons (4 direction switches with center-push and 2 separate buttons);
Short and long presses, i.e. 14 different commands can be preset;
Customizable long press delay;
Support for complete alpha-numeric keyboard, volume and media buttons and Android Intent broadcasts *;
Connects to Android devices via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy);
Supported on most Android 5 through Android 9 systems;
No cables required for operation – easy installation, easy on and off the bike, easy swaps between bikes;
Waterproof USB-C port for charging and firmware upgrades;
Rechargeable Li-ion battery;
Weeks of operation on a single charge;
Thickness merely 24mm (if placed right beside the OEM controls, both CI Control and OEM controls will still be within reach on most bikes);
Quick-release system (if you have more bikes, just get an extra bracket for each bike and swap the CI Control between them in seconds).
intent broadcasts currently not supported on CI Pad v1 and possibly other Android devices. That still allows for controlling Locus and other apps by touch controls, alphanumerical keyboard shortcuts and media button inputs.
Carpe Iter Pad V3
WHAT IT IS:
GPS Navigation – online and offline;
GPS enabled mapping online and offline source viewer to replace traditional paper maps;
Electronic Rally Roadbook and rally Tripmaster with additional software – Rally Navigator Reader Mobile app (free, support coming soon) or MDR Rally Roadbook for Android (free) – can replace traditional paper rally roadbook for amateur class rally races;
Electronic Rally Roadbook functionality depends on the the source data to be available in supported formats (please see for details here).
Currently, the CI Pad uses GPS data as a source for the rally Tripmaster. Front wheel sensor is in development.
Essentially, the CI Pad is a robust, vibration-, dust- and water-resistant, GNSS and touch screen enabled Android phone/tablet. It features everything you would expect from such a device, i.e. Android users will find a very familiar environment and control elements, which will let you jump right into using the CI Pad without any learning curve.
Beyond your usual Android tablet, the CI Pad sports number of improvements to make it work far better in the environment, where it is intended to be most of the time – mounted on your bike or ATV.
The most important differences are:
Industrial grade – built tough;
Tested to withstand drop from 1,8m and 2 ton shock pressure;
1000 nits (ccd) display to make the screen readable in direct sunlight;
Factory installed 9H film to enhance readability and provide extra layer of protection to the display;
Watertight charging port;
Boosted charging capability to ensure that even with GPS turned on and screen brightness dialed all the way up, you never run out of juice (when attached to correctly wired CI holder);
GSM / WCDMA / LTE – you can leave your phone at home, if you slot in your cloned sim card;
Huge battery to let you enjoy the benefits of the CI Tablet off the bike for many hours. CI Pad for 2020, marked as v3, has completely new chipset and runs on Android 8
Maybe this is not appealing for everyone, but we prefer a single device that can handle several separate functions, rather than bringing a bag full of electronics along on our trips. And this is the main idea behind the CI Pad – navigation device, which can also replace your mobile phone and tablet and also paper rally roadbook, should you choose to take part in an amateur roadbook rally race. A device, which can be used both on and off the bike and not only for navigating, but for anything else you would wish to have a tablet nearby. And when travelling outside your home country, it’s really great to be able to get a cheap pre-paid sim card at a fueling station and just slot it into the CI Pad. That lets you stay on-line and make calls for just local charges and not be limited to Wi-Fi hotspots (which are, by the way, pretty scarce e.g. in the mountains:-)), while still being reachable on your cell phone.
